Advent Podcasts Day 6: Dave Gorman

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

There's no rest when you're Advent Podcasting. It may be Saturday but it's also the 6th day of Advent which, when you don't really care about the whole religious angle, could only mean that we have comedian and broadcaster Dave Gorman talking to Robin Ince. Beats a stale bit of chocolate or a crappy picture of a snowman any day. Download it or listen with this player:






Catch up with the other five podcasts - Stephen Fry, PZ Myers, Robin Ince, Christina Martin and Alexei Sayle - by clicking through to this page where we've helpfully grouped them all together. To make sure you don't miss out on forthcoming installments, you can do one of the following:

Who kept the perfect proofs of mathematical theorems in a secret book.

Paul Erdos is a hero. I am not a mathemetician but I got exposed to his work from THE MAN WHO LOVED ONLY NUMBERS: THE STORY OF PAUL ERDOS AND THE SEARCH FOR MATHEMATICAL TRUTH. A great book. I actually met a person whose father hosted him during his travels and it sounds like he was truly a legend.
PS: My favorite - referring to children as episons! Genius.
