Samuel Hansen received a masters degree in mathematics from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is the mind behind ACMEScience and its mathematical podcasts Combinations and Permutations and Strongly Connected Components, and he also co-hosts the Math/Maths podcast with Peter Rowlett. All he has ever really wanted to do was to tell stories, especially if they happen to be mathematical.

Relatively Prime will be an 8 episode audio podcast featuring stories from the world of mathematics. Tackling questions like: is it true that you are only 7 seven handshakes from the President, what exactly is a micromort, and how did 39 people commenting on a blog manage to prove a deep theorem. Relatively Prime will feature interviews with leaders of mathematics, as well as the unsung foot soldiers that push the mathematical machine forward. With each episode structured around topics such as: The Shape of Things, Risk, and Calculus Wars, Relatively Prime will illuminate each area by delving into the history, applications, and people that underlie the subject that is the foundation of all science.

Timeline:

Step 1: Finding the stories, researching them, and contacting the interviewees

Step 2: Interviews-Samuel will travel around the world both in person and virtual to conduct the interviews for Relatively Prime

Step 3: Script writing, editing, and production

Step 4: Encoding and release

Your support will go towards funding research time, research materials, audio equipment, and travel costs.
