Episode 75: Best of Distillations #4


Distillations is sharing more of our favorite episodes this week. First we look back at our Valentine’s Day show, as Daria Panichas explains free radicals in the Chemical Agent. Then we visit the Boston Fine Art Museum with producer Rebecca Sheir and find out how its Scientific Research Laboratory detects forgery. Finally Bob Kenworthy tells us about snoring in the Mystery Solved! segment from our show about sleep. Chemical Agent: Free Radicals.
