Just a couple of primates who figured that talking about math was a better use of their time than throwing their poo. Podcasts will cover Mathematics Education, Evolutionary Game Theory, Mathematical Philosophy, Logic, Quantum nonsense, and anything else that seems even remotely tied to mathematics in science or society.
Tom Henderson holds a masters degree in mathematics and is an adjunct professor of mathematics at Portland State University. His main research interests are in Game Theory, Discrete Mathematics, and Mathematics Education. He is also a longtime member of the improve comedy group, The Light Fingered 5. And, he blogs at MathPunk.net
Nick Horton is a graduate student studying Mathematical Biology, Evolutionary Game Theory, and the Biology of Human Behavior. He writes a science blog on these topics at SapienGames.com. When he isn’t mathing, he works as a weightlifting Coach, competes as a weightlifter, writes a weightlifting blog, and makes much Soul Music.
NONE of the poo throwing, nor any of the opinions expressed in these podcasts reflect the opinions of any institutions Tom or Nick are affiliated with in any way what-so-ever. They are the opinions of these primates alone, and should not be taken as lifestyle advice, financial advice, nor comic relief of medical symptoms.
Further, neither Tom nor Nick advocate Zoo-breaks by other primates–or animals of a different genus, family, or kingdom. The fact that these two wild primates have managed to escape themselves and are now roaming free among society is not meant to be taken as an example of appropriate or moral behavior.
Please consult your doctor before embarking on any mathematics program, as it can and should be a physically exhausting experience resulting in much hair pulling, cursing at chalk boards, and excessive consumption of caffeine.
