Podcast on "Math Will Rock Your World" cover story
July 21, 2008

This is a podcast I did in January of '06 with BusinessWeek exec. editor John Byrne about the cover story that led to The Numerati. I had a number of ideas back then that I no longer hold, specifically about a division between "word people" and "number people." About a month later, I got the contract from Houghton Mifflin to write the book.
