Maria Yakerson has asked me to post the following announcement, since it could be interesting for the MO community

Dear all,

I would like to announce the YouTube channel "Math-life balance", where I am posting my online-interviews with mathematicians:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYRR0SgbYH59htIHkwTbqMw

In these non-professional interviews I ask our colleagues about their personal experience in math, about different aspects of mathematician's job, about their struggles and lifehacks. I imagine, it could be useful for our community, especially for young mathematicians. While we discuss serious matters, there's a lot of laughter and storytelling involved, so I hope that would be a new source of joy during lockdown time!

I plan to post videos on Fridays at 6 pm CET. The first interview, with Inna Zakharevich (Cornell University), is already available today. The second interview, with Hélène Esnault (Freie Universität Berlin), will be available next Friday. The updates to the schedule of interviews will appear here:

A side-note: I've turned off comments on the channel in order to avoid inappropriate comments from spammers, often appearing on Youtube (and I can't moderate a discussion elsewhere myself, sorry!). In case you have comments, critics or encouragement for me, feel free to send me an email!

Please spread the word! I would especially appreciate if you share the link with your students.

All the best,
Mura Yakerson
