Geometry and Topology Today

Geometry and Topology Today is Shea Vela-Vick’s and my attempt to create a television channel where we interview famous (and maybe not so famous) mathematicians about their latest theorems.  The goal is to keep the discussion at the high school/general interest level (read: young people can watch!).

    Amazing list of interviews ! Wish more people followed your example and created similar interview list in other maths sub-disciplines.
    Also, it would be great if you could create a channel/playlist ( or provide links to existing ones ) explaining Geometric and Topological Concepts.
