Erik Seligman  
These "show notes" accompany a short podcast of the same name that explores "fun, interesting, or just plain weird corners of mathematics that you probably didn't hear in school." Posts, which date back to December, 2011, have included "Flat People Give Me Indigestion," "How Polish Math Saved Europe," "Exponentials for Easter," "A Mathematical Nuclear Bomb," "Death by Theorem," "A Billion Frenchmen Can Be Wrong," "Why Statisticians Stink at Statistics," "Twistier Than You Thought," and "Perfect Maps." Seligman, an engineer with teacher certification, serves on the board of directors of his local school district. Also available from http://mathmutation.blogspot.co.uk/.
