So far this show has been very good! The host and stories are very interesting and the use of math to tell these stories is well done. My only issue with the show is that the sound editing can be a bit chaotic and distracting at times. Overall great though!
I found a new favourite podcast! This didn't disappoint.
Really worth a listen for anyone who likes interesting stories and anecdotes with the perfect mix of everyday pop culture and science trivia. Easily digestible. Quality production. Lively banter. But overall just a great bunch of stories so far.
The format of this podcast is great, each story is very different and interesting with a common thread of talking about numbers. The host does a great job of bringing us through the stories and explaining complex ideas in simple terms.
