There’s no new episode today, but hopefully next week’s Element Update and the following week’s return to our regular broadcasting schedule will make up for it.
I’m very pleased to announce that The Episodic Table of Elements will debut on Monday, January 1, 2018. Resolve to learn more in the new year with this podcast, where we’ll make a history class out of the chemistry lab.
Meet the scientist with wild eyes and a ragged beard who first saw the periodic table in a dream. Hear tales of balloon warfare — and how hydrogen can lift us to heights far above zeppelins. And learn how you can start your own element collection, whether or not you want to make your own Periodic Table Table.
We’re going live early in the morning on Monday, January 1, 2018, but we’ll have plenty of updates here for the next several weeks, so check back!
The Episodic Table of Elements will be available on iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and anywhere else podcasts are available — as well as right here, on episodictable.com.
I’ve ultimately decided against using this in any official capacity, but I wanted to share this image I made of Dmitri Mendeleev.
