anyone know any good advanced programming or mathematics podcasts

I ended up listening to "my favourite theorem" on the 4 hour bus ride I was on yesterday and it was pretty good

@SuricrasiaOnline I haven't seen many pure podcasts in this space. It would be pretty limiting to not have any way to render diagrams or code. However, there's plenty of nearly podcast stuff on YouTube.

Numberphile and Computerphile are great because you get a sampler of academics, which you can then follow independently, and is also interesting on its own.

Standupmaths is great if you want some humor with your math, though it does tend to be more visual.

@SuricrasiaOnline The Julia programming language channel is highly recommended for both advanced math and programming, as well as the fusion of the two. The JuliaCon talks in particular are a seemingly endless bouquet of new ideas of varying quality.

Even if you don't know Julia, it's pretty close to math most of the time and Julia is similar to Python.

It's usually pretty podcast-y, but this varies. They usually have notebooks you can follow up with too.

@SuricrasiaOnline Do you have any more specific interests? Ex. graph theory

@SuricrasiaOnline I really love Coding Blocks for conceptual programming topics. Obviously a podcast can’t get too much into implementation but they have awesome content.
