My Favorite Theorem

Those curious about the connection between Falting's theorem and New York City bagels (see Episode 53) may enjoy My Favorite Theorem. Hosted by math enthusiasts Keith Knudson and Evelyn Lamb, the podcast focuses on "sharing our guests' favorite mathematical results." While the show partly takes a traditional approach, asking guests to describe their favorite theorem, the podcast also mixes it up. Noting that "the best things in life come in pairs," the hosts "find out what our guest thinks pairs best with their theorem." For example, in Episode 54, Professor Steve Strogatz discusses connections he sees between Cubism paintings and Cauchy's theorem. Discover other unique pairs by listening to the more than 50 episodes released since 2017. These episodes, each around 30 minutes in length, can be found at the link above or on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other popular streaming platforms. Readers looking for additional content can follow My Favorite Theorem on Twitter (@myfavethm) or browse the rest of Knudson's website (including a blog and resources from his presentations). Readers can find some of Lamb's math writing by reading her Roots of Unity blog in Scientific American or checking out her website at
