|The Fighting Temeraire. 1839, by Joseph Mallord William Turner.|
The In Our Time radio show (via iTunes podcast in my case) is a favorite. They cover a wide variety of topics, from The Epic of Gilgamesh to Penicillin to the William Wilberforce and beyond.
Their most recent is about The Fighting Temeraire which I didn't even realize was a painting. But when I went to see what it looked like, I could see why it would get people's attention. So I thought I'd grab a few quick minutes to share it.
I'll be back full time by mid-December. Until then I'll drop in when I can with quick items.
