The Cartesian Cafe

The Cartesian Cafe is the podcast where an expert guest and Timothy Nguyen map out scientific and mathematical subjects in detail. On the podcast, we embark on a collaborative journey with other experts, to discuss mathematical and scientific topics in faithful detail, which means writing down formulas, drawing pictures, and reasoning about them together on a whiteboard. If you’ve been longing for a deeper dive into the intricacies of scientific subjects, then this is the podcast for you. Content also viewable on YouTube: www.youtube.com/timothynguyen and Spotify. Timothy Nguyen is a mathematician and AI researcher working in industry. Homepage: www.timothynguyen.com, Twitter: @IAmTimNguyen
