Next Episode

Hi folks, just a quick note to say that the next episode, Polonium, will publish a week from Monday — that’s Monday, July 5. We’ll be on a slightly slower schedule like this throughout the summer; I appreciate your patience!

Leading Up To Lead

Hello, listeners! Just a quick note to say the next episode will post on Monday, May 17, rather than tomorrow. Things have been a little busy on my end, and our next element is a doozy: Lead. There’s a lot to say on the subject, so I’d also like to take a little additional time to make sure I cover everything.

You won’t be totally empty-handed, though. Return here tomorrow for a look at a beautiful new book that focuses on one of the stars of Primo Levi’s classic book about the elements.

I’ll be traveling a bit over the summer, mostly to visit family I haven’t seen in over a year(!), so the show might operate on a slightly slower schedule like this over the next few months. I’ll publish a post like this to let you know when that’s the case, though — I wouldn’t want anyone stuck with nothing to listen to on a Monday morning!

Next Episode

Hi folks. It turns out there’s a lot to say about iridium, and rather than try to rush the episode out half-baked, I’m going to delay release by a week. I hate to do it, but I hope you find that the final result is worth the extra time in the oven.
