*In this series of posts, we’ll be featuring mathematical podcasts from all over the internet, by speaking to the creators of the podcast and asking them about what they do.*

We spoke to Brady Haran, YouTube filmmaker and creator of Numberphile, along with several other highly successful science YouTube channels, about his accompanying Numberphile podcast.

**Podcast** **title**: The Numberphile Podcast**Website**: numberphile.com/podcast **Links**: Apple – YouTube**Average episode length**: 30-80 minutes**Recommended episode**: The Klein Bottle Guy – with Cliff Stoll

#### How would you describe The Numberphile Podcast?

Longer form interviews with mathematicians and numbery people. I have been making short YouTube videos about maths for a while (Numberphile) and when I see all these amazing people, it seemed logical to spend a bit longer with them and go deeper on a podcast.

#### Who are you? Your face seems familiar.

My name is Brady Haran – an independent filmmaker and podcaster. Some of your readers might be familiar with my Numberphile YouTube videos, or maybe the Hello Internet podcast?

#### Who is the intended audience for the podcast?

Everyone. My hope is to reveal more about the *people* rather than just the mathematics.

#### What is a typical episode like?

I typically just sit down with a person and start asking them questions that pop into my head. Very often we cover their lives, path to mathematics, their work, their passions – whatever else comes up. It is deliberately unplanned and we just see where it goes. Conversations last about an hour or so. There’s no release schedule, it’s quite random.

#### What’s special about your podcast, compared to other mathematical podcasts?

Perhaps because I am not a mathematician myself, I ask questions that you don’t typically hear in “maths interviews”.

#### What are some highlights of the podcast so far?

The conversations with Cliff Stoll, James Grime, and Edward Frenkel were quite personal and revealing, I thought. Sir Timothy Gowers was really honest about life as a top maths person… and Matt Parker and Hannah Fry were both good fun, of course.

#### What exciting plans do you have for the future?

I hope to continue getting out the microphone when possible – between making Numberphile videos of course!
