Chemistry on your MP3 player

The Chemistry Heritage Foundation produces weekly podcasts on the past, present and future of Chemistry. The show, Distillations, in production for about half a year, is hosted by a historian and former naval officer Robert Hicks. Episodes are just over ten minutes long and cover a wide range of topics, such as entropy, pharmaceuticals, color, nutrition, and more. The podcasts are accessible to laypeople with an interest in chemistry and a basic upper middle school science education. Every topic features a related element, and references are provided for each week's topic to permit further study on topics of interest.
