Episode #63 - Newton's Ultimate Laws of Physics

Today we talk about the famous three laws of classical physics that were first written by Sir Isaac Newton himself. These laws ultimately shifted the world's perspective on how THINGS work. We now understand them as obvious, but obviously, they have not always been...

Episode #58 - Lower Dimensions

Today we talk about the fascinating properties of lower physical dimensions. The very first math topic that we covered here on the podcast was higher dimensions, and now we continue that discussion, but going the other way. There are great analogies that we can draw from lower dimensions that help us understand the workings of upper dimensions.
