There was a nice extended interview (almost an hour in length) on ABC classic FM on Monday by Margaret Throsby with Clio Cresswell (a senior lecturer in mathematics at the University of Sydney), being a light conversation about music, maths, and what the latter can offer to the layperson. The audio for that interview can be found here. I particularly liked Clio’s description of algebra, trigonometry, and mathematical abstraction in very accessible terms.

(Thanks to Phillip Brooker and Jan Thomas for the item.)
