I keep my radio presets eclectic.  Everything from classical music to classic rock to the most modern stuff.  And on the "most modern" I amused to hear a commercial advertising diaper services.  LOL!  Everyone grows up eventually.

I don't know if you'll find this of any interest or not, but I like it:

I am going to be spending the rest of the month looking for patterns in the Recamán Sequence... that is *exactly* the kind of maths I love playing with.

Oh, for joy! I only found out about it recently, and thought it was pretty cool. I was surprised, though, that it didn't make the top 10 list of favorite sequences, but oh well.

Algorithmic sequences can be pretty, in a crystalline sort of way.  But no algorithmic number can represent life, only the real number line can do that, and that means including the non-algorithmic transcendental numbers.  Pi is an example of an algorithmic transcendental.

I've never heard of it before, and I haven't checked in on Numberphile in quite a while.  I know Alex Bellos from his appearances on The Infinite Monkey Cage (highly recommended).  Fascinating!
