My Favorite Theorem

Mathematics, Nature, Science
Evelyn Lamb and Kevin Knudson talk with mathematicians about theorems! Of course, the podcast is also about who those mathematicians are as people, the interesting things that they do, and how they think about math. One of our favorite parts of the show is that they ask mathematicians to “pair” their theorems with something, like a food and wine pairing. The pairings have been everything from food and drink to music and literature and sports, so they leave it wide open. Getting mathematicians to talk a bit impressionistically about why something from everyday life reminds them of this bit of math is really fun.
