I’d enjoyed the BBC Brief History of Mathematics series, but hadn’t known about these others. Thank you.

Did you know Relatively Prime ran a second series of eight more episodes in 2016, then just recently Samuel has started releasing monthly episodes supported by Patreon?

Thanks for including Travels in a Mathematical World. That was quite a while ago, though. You might enjoy Taking Maths Further, a podcast about maths topics and people who use them in their work that I did with Katie Steckles more recently.
