A mathematician with a sense of humor? Surely you jest. Actually, our guest this week was just that: Dr. William Duham, historical mathematician. He traces math's roots back to Africa, 40,000 years ago.

He talked about why mathematicians are often absent-minded, and about women's role in the discipline.
