Pick of the Week: The Memory Palace – Distance

April 8, 2012
The Memory Palace – Distance
Podcast release date: March 23, 2012
Creator and Producer: Nate DiMeo
Time: 3:52

distance (in Morse code)

The Memory Palace is to history what Radiolab is to science and Planet Money is to economics; each podcast makes a field accessible to a wider audience through story telling.

In the episode 44 (distance), Nate DiMeo tells the story of an event in Samuel Finley Breese Morse’s life that changed the focus of his life from art to science. I like the way the story connects both parts of his life with the common threads of dots, lines, and distance. The story is very short – under four minutes – but well worth a listen.
