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 HĂ©lĂ¨ne Esnault (Freie UniversitĂ¤t 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
