Albert Einstein Episode Image

We have 3 full-length episodes up on our episodes page! Come explore physics with Einstein, Curie, Rutherford, and (of course!) Mr. Tompkins
By his ingenuity and narrative skills, Gamow is able to transform the puzzling and obscure mysteries of physics into magical and enthralling stories. It was Mr. Tompkins who made the new physics vivid and real for me as a child and I am sure that he will continue to do the same for a great many others.
