The Episodic Table Of Elements has officially made its television debut in the latest episode of SciTech Now on PBS! I appear in the first segment of the episode, which includes an interview with Hari Sreenivasan followed by an excerpt of Episode 1, Hydrogen, with some complementary visuals underneath.
