The Secret Life of Elements

In what might be considered a 100th-episode anniversary gift, CHF's Distillations podcast staff has just received word that Sam Kean, author of The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World From the Periodic Table of the Elements, will be stopping by our studio this month for an interview with CHF’s executive producer Victoria Indivero. Stay tuned for this and a review of his widely-popular book in the fall issue of Chemical Heritage magazine.  In the meantime, visit Slate where Kean has started blogging about the quirky backstories of his favorite elements, starting with Antimony.
