On the Aug. 30, 2015 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with UC Berkeley's Edward Frenkel on what it's really like to be a mathematician. I thought he'd be boring but nope.
In fact, he's written a book called Love and Math. Plus, you can call in for a Workover. Whatever career conundrum is besetting you or someone you care about, I usually can help.
Work with Marty Nemko is heard ever Sunday from 11 AM to noon on KALW, 91.7 FM. It's archived for a week on the NPR site and in perpetuity on iTunes and on this site.
