Plus at the ICM.

This summer the world saw the biggest mathematics conference of them all — the International Congress of Mathematicians — take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Congress sees the award of the famous Fields medals, as well as other prestigious prizes. In this podcast, recorded in Rio the day after the prizes were awarded, we talk about the Fields medallists and their work, and hear what they had to say at a press conference.

You can see all the content we produced at the ICM here.
