C&P 72: My Mom Thinks I’m a Mathematician

Even though no on asked for it Samuel did it, he brought back Combinations and Permutations. Really he did it for a segment of Relatively Prime, but in the end it is the same result: More ridiculous mathematical jokes and tangents. For this special episode he got some of the old favorites, Nathan Rowe, Sean Breckling, and Brandon Metz, back together in the mail room of UNLV CDC Building 7 to record an episode all about what mathematicians do all day.

SCC 63: Santa Fe Institute

Santa_Fe_InstituteOn this episode of Strongly Connected Components Samuel Hansen travels to Santa Fe to speak with three of the researchers at the Santa Fe Institute. He speaks with Yoav Kallus about packing oranges, Sid Redner about statistical physics, and Josh Grochow about complex systems. Plus, so much more.

SCC 62: Katie Steckles

62katieOn this episode of Strongly Connected Components Samuel Hansen is joined by mathematician Katie Steckles. They discuss how ER influenced her to study mathematics, just what the word mathematician encompasses, and what a mathematician in residence does. Be sure to follow Katie on twitter, check out her work with Think Maths, and her other mathematical communication work.

SCC 61: Cents

Cents – Official Trailer

On this episode of Strongly Connected Components Samuel Hansen is joined by the director and writer of the Kickstarter funded independent film Cents Christopher Boone. They discuss how to use mathematics in a movie without making it about solving problem sets, why he made all characters guilty when it came to bullying, and how you, yes you, can help get Cents screened in your city. Visit the movie’s website and sign up for a TUGG screening now.

SCC 60: The Other Half

TOHcover

On this episode of Strongly Connected Components Samuel Hansen is joined by the hosts of the new ACMEScience podcast The Other Half, Annie Rorem and Anna Haensch.

The Other Half, a new podcast from ACMEScience.com, is an exploration of the the other half of a bunch of things. First, Anna and Annie want to take you on a tour of the other half of math — the fun half you might be missing when you learn math in school, the half that helps you makes sense of your own life. And on the flip side of that equation, they want to explore the other half of life — the half of day to day social scenarios that can be better understood by thinking about them like a mathematician. Lastly, Anna and Annie — as women of science — represent the other half of people. More than half of the humans on earth are female, but that parity isn’t reflected in the world of math and science. They hope to lend some much needed lady voices to the conversation.

They discuss discuss the first episode of The Other Half, the different blogs Anna and Annie write for, and what to expect from the future of The Other Half.
