13. The Cardano Awakens

We meet an Italian mathematician who played a huge role in Fermat and Pascal’s Unfinished Game and whose drive shaft is still in use in modern vehicles!  In this episode, we’ll attempt to answer the following questions:

  • Does hair really have a life of its own?    
  • How can you get a girl in ten…or two…days? 
  • What do either of these have to do with math?

Let us know your thoughts.  Follow us on Facebook or email us at podcast@infinitelyirrational.com.  For math and the research behind the episode, visit our webpage at www.infinitelyirrational.com We look forward to hearing from you!
