Sometimes the best way to get into a community is to build your own. In this episode, co-hosts Sarah and Ifaz talk with Jenna Race about her struggles to find other people who think Math is cool and ending up on Math Twitter.
The conversation ranges from discovering college algebra, finding out about other math communities, arranging Pi Days at work and the dark sides of online life, all while dispelling myths about slide rules and log books.
