Maths Puzzles, Cricket and Signalswith Helen Czerski, Matt Parker and Rob Eastaway
Science Shambles is break from its mini break and Helen Czerski has taken over hosting duties while Robin is on tour! Today she’s joined by two of our favourite mathematicians, Matt Parker and Rob Eastaway to chat about the difference between maths puzzles and maths problems (and which is better), the underlying problems with sports rankings, Matt’s new number one bestseller Humble Pi and much more! Then at the end Helen is joined by Eve Cowely of Footprint Theatre, and Shambles producer Trent Burton, to briefly talk about Signals, the radio telescope based comedy on tour through the CSN this year.
