Ep. 1.1: In the Beginning
On this episode we start with our historical approach to mathematics where it all began, the calendar.  I break down how it was made, why it was made, and some of the hidden mathematical secrets that it holds.  Also find out which animals can count!!

Ep 0.9: Is Infinity Real: There exists a...
On this episode, we begin our discussion on Infinity by defining what it means to exist. Existence is a massive aspect to formal mathematics, yet it is never defined what kind of existence is meant in mathematics.  We break down three kinds of existence and show their effect on mathematics through the history of calculus and how it evolved.  Calculus done by Leibniz and calculus done by students today look very different, and the idea of existence may give us an insight as to why.
