I just had a great interview with Nasos Papadopoulos from the wonderful MetaLearn podcast. The conversation is about an hour, lots of insights about:

  • How Better Explained got started (and staying motivated)
  • Learning math through direct experience
  • The ADEPT method (Analogy, Diagram, Example, Plain-English, Technical)
  • How to get better at math and why some find it difficult
  • Role of math in modern society
  • Learning other skills from coding to snowboarding
