I love this podcast. I listen to it in the morning with my oldest son, Samuel, on our drive to work.
It makes for fun conversation and I am going to be sad when we have finished all the episodes.

Math Mutation is a great way to show some of the vast forest of mathematics that non-mathematicians never see. Keep up the good work.

Just last weekend I finally caught up with the present, finishing the most recent Math Mutation. I usually listen to them while doing yard work, and it's taken me since the summer to get through from episode zero to the present. I enjoy them very much, and have decided to mark them all as unplayed and start over... Does that mean I'm caught in an infinite loop? This time through I plan to flag episodes to play to my high school students. Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the delightful pods. You have a dark sense of humor that is subtle and have characteristics of its own. Can you do a pod on measurement precision vs. mathematical formula.

By Lax.Ref

This is a fun and educational podcast covering an interesting variety of math topics. If you didn't even know there WERE topics in math beyond what you covered in high school, this is a great place to start.

5/5

Only complaint is there aren't more of them.

I would gladly elect Erik Seligman our benevolent philosopher king! In all seriousness it's great to find a podcast that makes such an important subject short, fun, and most importantly: interesting.

Ever heard someone say, "He's all hat and no cattle"? Well, Erik's the opposite. He doesn't need fancy sound embellishment nor witty repartee to keep his listeners engaged. (But his one-liners delivered dead pan are a nice touch!) Always an interesting subject explored in a way we can understand. He knows his math... and more.

Mind-blowing topics/facts. Even if you are not in a mathematical field, you might find this podcast useful. I like it. Eric, you are appreciated!

Interesting and just long enough to give you something to think about when you are bored.

By Jms

Great, fun podcast. Never boring and just the right length for each topic. Keep it up!

always interesting, well focused. I am having a very good time every time.Seligman looks for well defined subjects that open up new vistas for thoughts.
Thanks for your time and efforts.

Each episode is short and to the point, but entertaining to listen to. Even this social science person can wrap her brain around these math topics.

By Foxy McLovin

Erik does a fun job finding obscure corners of math to talk about.
Whether you're math challenged or well-aware of these corners, you'll enjoy it.
I would like my Math Mutation a little more often, but always listen to it first when the subscription come in.
A good time

Erik does a great job of tearing off a monster slab of math meat (sorry, veggies) and breaking it down into tasty bite sized morsels.
Don't let the length of the podcast fool you. They are all entertaining/educational. At the very least they will get one to grab that book off of the shelf (as I did with Simon Singh's 'The Code Book') and get to reading.
The Best part about the podcast is he continues to do it!! So many good podcasts wither after a few months. If you want this to stick around, please take the time to subscribe to it and write a review.
Thanks Erik!

By LorienL

Out of all of the podcasts that I listen to, this is the one that's almost guaranteed to make me laugh out loud. Each episode is a delighted and delightful look into some odd corner of mathematics, extrapolated out to its known and its possible consequences.

If only they came out more often.

Great podcast that renewed my interest in Math, and led me to new information.

Erik recently (June 2009) ran for his local school board and lost by a very few votes. While this is a sad event for the local community, it is a good one for us, the podcast community. Why? Because he will produce more of these wonderful podcasts!!

By lordgigz

Amazing, to the point, and always... interesting. Entertaining regardless of your math knowledge level.

This is a great podcast! You don't need any prior knowledge of math to appreciate the short and interesting subjects in each of these podcasts, but even if you have some you'll find them just as fascinating as the next guy.
