This month's installment is an especially specially special show because we are partnering with the Emory Department of Chemistry and the National Science Foundation to discover The Origin of Life! With a diverse, brilliant line-up of music, writing, and miscellany on topics such as creation myths, arsenic based life, artificial chemical life and interstellar clouds, the show is out of this world.
This month, The Encyclopedia Show tackles the Belle Epoque, a period of tremendous cultural growth in the late 1800s. Some say it was the last time we were hopeful as a global community. We at the Encyclopedia Show are always hopeful though!
Before we get to today’s interview, I thought you might enjoy checking out this fun discussion at the A.V. Club about the worst Christmas songs. Also, soak in the football this weekend because your Cleatus the Football Robot Fan Fiction entries are due Monday at noon.
