This hour long conversation gives insights into how three high achieving women feel about mathematics. Nicola, the host, is the author of this blog, and has always had strong affection for mathematics, though this has changed in nature lately. Gina and Suzy are both strongly negative in their feelings about maths. As the discussion progresses, listen for the shift in attitude.

And here is a picture of the three of us.

Here are some of the questions we discuss over the hour:

- Tell me about your relationship with maths.
- How do you think your feelings about maths have affected your life?
- If you saw this as an opportunity to talk to people who teach mathematics, what message would you like to give them?
- How do you feel about the idea that you could change how you feel about maths?
