Back on BMS ep. 229, Bob invited Steve Patterson back to the show to discuss Riemann's Rearrangement Theorem, which was such a counterintuitive result that Bob changed his mind and agreed with Steve that mathematicians had smuggled nonsense into their field. Math PhD Ian Deters now joins Bob to defend the use of infinity in higher mathematics.
