Podcast #1: Hypatia

The very first of our monthly podcasts, produced by Susan Stone:

This episode focuses on the ancient Greek mathematician Hypatia, presented by Karen Margolis. Plus you’ll meet co-hosts Florian Duijsens and Katy Derbyshire, and hear all about how the show came to be and which dead dames we’ve featured so far.

Also available on Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, RadioPublic (and soon all other purveyors of podcasts).


Show notes:

One lady we talked about but forgot to name was the rather difficult but still fascinating actress and heiress Dagmar Godowsky. 

Here are a couple of artist’s impressions of Hypatia herself:


And here’s Karen showing that father-and-daughter calculation of the distances between various heavenly bodies.


Our theme music is “Little Lily Swing” by Tri-Tachyon. Thanks for tuning in! Check back in October for Episode 2.
