Episode 1: Birthmarks, Beans, and Brotherhoods

We know Pythagoras was the leader of a brotherhood…or do we?  In the first of a three-part series on Pythagoras, we dive into some of the wild and supposed “truths” about one of the most famous and controversial Greek mathematicians/philosophers and attempt to answer the following questions:

  • How can your birthmark can make you famous?
  • Are beans really a magical fruit?
  • What do either of these things have to do with math?
