Two cool Math resources

Yeah, I said it! Cool. Math. Resources.

PLUS Magazine
Here is part of the description from the website:

"Plus is an internet magazine which aims to introduce readers to the beauty and the practical applications of mathematics...Plus provides feature articles, which describe applications of maths to real-world problems, games, and puzzles; reviews of popular maths books and events; a news section, showing how recent news stories were often based on some underlying piece of maths that never made it to the newspapers; a puzzle for you to sharpen your wits against; a lucky dip of mathematical curiosities; and opinions on various maths-related topics and news stories. We have a regular interview with someone in a maths-related career, showing the wide range of uses maths gets put to in the real world."

The Math Dude
A podcast that is part of the Quick and Dirty Tips website, episodes on The Math Dude, covers various topics in Mathematics. Each episode includes download links and the transcript for the episode. Good stuff.
