We talked to Dan about mathematical journalism, spreading a love of numbers, and our new collaboration with the INI. Topics touched upon include our late boss, the wonderful John Barrow, the many joys of being a maths communicator, and the thrill that comes from finding and inspiring audiences with the most unusual of subjects.
Thank you to Dan and the INI for allowing us to host this episode of Living Proof on our podcast. You can find all the content from our collaboration with the INI here.
