Interesting, Exciting, and Poetic

This podcast is absolutely amazing. I am a high school chemistry teacher and just started listening to this podcast on my commute. It has been so fun! I have learned so much. I am always learning fun things that I can relate to my lessons.

I have to say one of my favorite aspects of this podcast is the poetic nature of the speaker. The speaker is very eloquent and just has a way with words.

I do have to ask though — when is the next episode?! Can’t wait to hear about uranium!

Thanks for the podcast!
