Relatively prime – Stories from the Mathematical Domain

Samuel Hansen has come up with the great proposal of making an 8 part podcast called Relatively prime which he describes as

Relatively Prime will be an 8 episode audio podcast featuring stories from the world of mathematics. Tackling questions like: is it true that you are only 7 seven handshakes from the President, what exactly is a micromort, and how did 39 people commenting on a blog manage to prove a deep theorem. Relatively Prime will feature interviews with leaders of mathematics, as well as the unsung foot soldiers that push the mathematical machine forward.ย With each episode structured around topics such as: The Shape of Things, Risk, and Calculus Wars, Relatively Prime will illuminate each area by delving into the history, applications, and people that underlie the subject that is the foundation of all science.

However, in order to do this he needs to raise some funding. I am by no means affiliated with him and neither has he asked me to post this, but I think the topics they want to explore makes it a cause worthy of some attention.

Samuel already runs several podcast… damn it, I just found one of those small black insect crawling around on my monitor. The problem is that it crawls inside it… Anyway, back to the topic. Samuel already runs several math related podcasts from Acme Science.

I wish Samuel the best of luck with the project and hope he succeeds.

He has 39 hours and 3027$ to go.
I’m looking forward to this!

Nice insect by the way!
