|Haensch, Anna; and Rorem, Annie|
|Podcasts that explore "the other half of math — the fun half you might be missing when you learn math in school, the half that helps you makes sense of your own life." Rorem and Haensch met while pursuing advanced degrees in mathematics; and in the course of sharing an office on their university campus, discovered a mutual affinity for that subject as well as for the social issues of the day (and for talking!). Beyond responding to the perennial lamentation of "When am I ever going to use this ...," the two women aim to bring "much needed lady voices" to discuss everyday scenarios that can be better understood by thinking like a mathematician.|
