# AMS Math in the Media — Interview

I was recently interviewed for the American Mathematical Society’s *Math in the Media *column, in which I answer some questions my *Quanta Magazine* column and about writing about math for the public. I was asked specifically about my column on the universal covering problem.

Why did you recently choose to write about the universal covering problem?It’s such a fun mathematical story to tell, with meaningful connections to high school geometry. And there’s something uniquely mathematical about studying a shape for a hundred years and still not knowing exactly what it looks like. I enjoy bringing those experiences to others.
