What does a mathematician do?
In this episode, we make the case for maths, why it's important students not give up on it too soon and, more importantly, why they should do as much as they can.
Our guests are two women who spend a lot of time doing mathematics outreach. They share their two very different personal journies on how they got to where they are!
