Too often, Mathematics is presented as a rigid list of steps, where the farther you go measures "how good you are." But Mathematics is more like a landscape of ideas where "easy" and "hard" can be very subjective. This talk is a journey through the most important areas of the Land of Maths: there will be gossip about who invented the zero, open questions about disabilities, feminist allies, Cold War and even romantic duels. You will no longer be afraid of technobabble!
