Listen Up…

2 interviews for the price of 1 today (i.e. free!):

A new podcast (50 mins.) from WildAboutMath blog, this time with Ed Burger, Williams College math professor and co-author of  "The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking." This interview covers more than just math… if you are an educator, a learner, a thinker, or someone who's ever failed or gotten something wrong, this podcast should be of interest (if you don't fall into any of those categories, well, then just pass on it ;-):

And as long as we're in interview mode I'll throw in this bonus 2-year-old interview (15 mins.) from YouTube with some bloke named Strogatz who appears to know a bit about math ;-) (he talks about both math and writing here, including, if you're not already familiar with it, poignantly relating the story of his earlier book "The Calculus of Friendship"):
