Radio Lab shares how scientists took about 300 years to lay out the Periodic Table into neat rows and columns. In one hour, we’re going to mess it all up. This episode, we enlist journalists, poets, musicians, and even a physicist to help us tell stories of matter that matters. You’ll never look at that chart the same way again. Special thanks to Emotive Fruition for organizing poetry performances and to the mighty Sylvan Esso for composing ‘Jaime’s Song’, both inspired by this episode. Thanks also to Sam Kean, Chris Howk and Brian Fields.
