As you may know, 2019 has been the International Year of the Periodic table, so in the last Chemistry in its Element podcast of the year, we’re ending on a song. We teamed up with Helen Arney and the Waterbeach Brass Band to record a new version of Tom Lehrer’s Elements song – updated by Helen to include all the elements discovered since he first wrote it back in 1959.

And that’s it for Chemistry in its Element this year. We’ll be back in January as we continue our journey through the compelling stories of chemical compounds. Subscribe to make sure you get every podcast as soon as it’s out, and please let us know if there are any compounds you would like us to cover. I’m Ben Valsler, wishing you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
