Did you know there might be a negative curvature surrounding us that we can’t see? We find out about that and other interesting things during our conversation with research mathematician Fionntan Roukema. He is currently living in Italy so we can all fantasize about that as well. We thought about running a contest as to how to pronounce his name but soon realized that you’ll probably listen to this episode and find out anyway, so… Plus, I think someone stops by, there’s a quiz, some news and Mikie recalls a childhood fantasy. All this, free in specially marked boxes!

More on the topics discussed in this episode: topology, Friedrich Gauss, doors
