## Math/Maths Podcast: 5136 miles of mathematics

Submitted by Marianne on June 25, 2010*You say potato, and I say potahto.....*

You can forget the spuds, as the far more important math/maths debate may finally be settled with Peter Rowlett's new Math/Maths Podcast: 5136 miles of mathematics. It's a conversation about mathematics between the UK and USA. Peter in Nottingham calls Samuel Hansen in Las Vegas and the pair chat about math and maths that has been in the news, that they've noticed and that has happened to them. The latest episode talks about something close to everyone's hears (or ears) — just why are those vuvuzelas at the world cup sound so annoying. They also discuss putting relativity to the test, the Game of Life and taking maths to the streets.

Peter also produces the excellent Travels in a mathematical world podcast for the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, and the History of Maths and X video podcasts. (*Some say 'vodcasts', I say 'I don't think that one has made it into the lingo yet'*!)

Listen to the latest episodes of Math/Maths Podcast, Travels in a mathematical world and watch the latest History of Maths and X.
