It looks like there will be a new podcast with Michael Emerson. Michael’s longtime friend, Jimmy Aquino’s podcast called Comic News Insider just celebrated it’s 10th anniversary, and Michael Emerson, ever so nice to his friends and fans, was there to celebrate it. Here are some photos from this event:
As soon as the podcast is available, I’ll post the link.
Michael Emerson hosted a Public Television series, which to my understanding was shown on Oregon Public Television. Here’s the article about it:
The Mystery of Matter: Search for the Elements is an exciting PBS series about one of the great adventures in the history of science: the long (and continuing) quest to understand what the world is made of—to identify, understand and organize the basic building blocks of matter. Three hour-long episodes introduce viewers to some of history’s most extraordinary scientists: Joseph Priestley and Antoine Lavoisier, whose discovery of oxygen—and radical interpretation of it—led to the modern science of chemistry; Humphry Davy, who made electricity a powerful new tool in the search for elements; Dmitri Mendeleev, whose Periodic Table brought order to the growing gaggle of elements; Marie Curie, whose groundbreaking research on radioactivity cracked open a window into the atom; Harry Moseley, whose discovery of atomic number redefined the Periodic Table; and Glenn Seaborg, whose discovery of plutonium opened up a whole new realm of elements, still being explored today.
The Mystery of Matter shows us not only what these scientific explorers discovered but also how, using Broadway-caliber actors to reveal the creative process through the scientists’ own words, and conveying their landmark discoveries through re-enactments shot with working replicas of their original lab equipment. Knitting these strands together into a coherent, entertaining whole is host Michael Emerson, a two-time Emmy Award-winning actor.
The series aired Monday, October 20, 27 and November 3 at 10 p.m. on OPB.
