T. R. Appleton is clearly a gifted podcaster and makes detailed episodes about each element. Please keep this going till the last element. This gives me such more info than Wikipedia and it’s fun listening to. Please keep this going!!!

This is without a doubt my favorite podcast! I have looked for a book about the discovery/history of the elements for years and came across this podcast. It’s been super informative! Thanks!!!😀

Top quality podcast with interesting stories. I love the unrushed delivery and lack of shouty jingles. Highly recommended!

I have caught up with all the episodes. Each element is wonderful on its own, but you take that to another level. Can’t wait for Protactinium!

Very interesting and well done podcast.

I’m a science teacher and this podcast is exactly what I hope my class can be: educational and entertaining. The stories TR tells highlight the genius of scientists of the past and the connections of chemistry to our daily lives. I can’t recommend this highly enough.

Thank you Mr Appleton for this excellent series. Brings the Elements into real life instead of cold notation in a text book. I hope the colliders can find more elements to keep you going! Perhaps you could follow on with a series on particles, or objects in space? Regards Owen

The daily listening to this podcast is something of a highlight to an otherwise boring routine. The calm and stately voice of Mr Appleton, to the beautiful music, to the ridiculous accents, all contribute to a funny and educational experience. Whenever a new episode comes out I don’t let myself...Read full review »

Astonishing good told stories about the building blocks of our universe. Fascinatingly informative, well researched and narrated with a fine hint of humour each of the episodes has been utter joy to listen to.

This is a fantastic podcast. We just finished ruthenium. My sons favorite has been strontium.
mrpeters714 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/18/21
This is essential listening to all folk alive today. Brilliant science delivered with care, humour and passion. I love it.

This podcast is fantastic. There are a whole lot of really interesting background stories to each element in each episode. Also thanks the music compliments the narrative perfectly. Really a first rate production. Thank you for continuing to make such an amazing podcast.

I’ve rediscovered a lot of my interest in chemistry listening to this show. It’s well-produced and engaging with lots of interesting stories.

Excellent mix of science and history
Fingell via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/11/21
Educational, witty and supremely entertaining. TRH breathes new life into the much over looked but fascinating journey of discovery. I just binged the entire 88 podcasts and I look forward to future episodes! 79 stars 🌟
ParadigmBustersInk via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/01/21
This has become my daily commuting listening. A fun, educational dive into the world of chemistry; I’ll even forgive the outrageous accents!
macs4music via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/19/21
Each episode of The Episodic Table of Elements is like being chem lab partners with American Shadows, The Memory Palace, Backstory, and Criminal. With the dulcet tones of T.R. Appleton being comparable to Phoebe Reads a Mystery. When I get to the end, I go right back to hydrogen and start...Read full review »

I used to listen to this on my commute (not so much now lol) but I listen whenever and it’s great! The host (T R Appleton) is clearly a gifted podcaster and the episodes are clear and engaging. He should do more podcasts!
Eevie105 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/21
This is truly my favorite of all of the science podcasts I listen to! Mr. Appleton provides a delightful array of anecdotes each episode which I often find myself sharing with others even if I can’t get them to listen to the podcast themselves. I have been working my way from episode 0 onward for...Read full review »

This podcast takes the bland carbon of life and compresses it into an absolutely perfect diamond of entertainment and information. The poem at the end of the aluminium episode is possibly my favourite thing. Thank you mr Appleton, I hope that they never stop discovering elements for you to discuss.

Such interesting and lovely podcast.

Podcaster TR Appleton blends a wealth of information to present in an enriching, entertaining way. He not only informs, but can spark interest and exploration to those who are eager. Such are the differences, imo, between information and education. Listeners to The Episodic Table are the...Read full review »

This is one amazing podcast! T. R. Appleton does an amazing job at colourfully portraying the history and personality of each of the elements on the periodic table.
canadian space lover via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 11/24/20
Mr T. R. Appleton brings a wonderfully entertaining listen to my weary head at the end of the day, lying in bed listening to his such informative tales of the periodic table, bringing to life each element in a way that a simpleton can easily understand. Mr Appleton’s warm voice is exactly what is...Read full review »

Such a fantastic podcast! A skillful blend of sly humor, art, literature, history, and technology that teaches and entertains. Bravo!

Not being particularly good at the subject in school, I have acquired a new found fascination for Chemistry from listening to this podcast. Truly interesting stories diving into the history of each chemical. Well done.

Love the podcast!! Very informativ and great narrator. Should get more recognition. Thank you for the great work.
guodzer via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 08/05/20
Fascinating and informative. The host does an exemplary job of keeping the listener intrigued with each episode. Great work by all involved in making this one of the best podcasts or any other medium I have listened to or watched on the elements.

Currently in school taking pre req classes. Halfway through 7 chem classes.😬. Really nice to have a narrative enjoyable chem talk to listen to. I love hearing the history. Can’t wait to hear through the entire periodic table!😄

Everything about this stately element-by-element tour of the periodic table just oozes quality. From the wry wordplay of the writing, to the perfectly pitched soundtrack, the craft and passion gleams from every facet. If you have even a passing interest in chemistry, science history, or you enjoy...Read full review »

This is my first podcast review. I’m on episode 11 and like this so much, I’m inspired to give this positive feedback. The subject has been covered before but Mr. T. R.

I began listening for my love of chemistry, but it was the history behind the elements that kept me listening. I'm always excited to see that a new episode has come out and I'll be here till the end of the table.Read full review »

Super job on this podcast. Easy to understand, consistent language used to describe each element and some really cool stories to match. Get the passion for chemistry and the periodic table back again. Love the notion of an element collector. Even have a few myself.
chicken pie guy via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/28/19
So happy I happened to watch SciTech the day you were on. I knew I was going to like it before the interview was over. Nice mix of stories. I also like the part about how to collect each element.
KingIkemay via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/19
I've been addicted to this podcast since I came across it a few weeks ago. I'm able to take a new fun fact with me into work every day and even listen intermittently to it in an inconspicuous manner throughout the work day. Best chemistry podcast available!Read full review »
