Subscribe to hear Elements and the full Timeline Podcast
Timeline: Elements dives into music, history, art, science and philosophy. Through the stories and facts presented, the series seeks to break down the compartments of knowledge that separate our thinking and allow the listener to draw connections from different disciplines and time periods.
FIRE is the power of transformation and has shaped culture from the very beginning.
WATER is the source and sustainer of life. It covers 70 percent of the Earth's surface and makes up 60 percent of our bodies.
EARTH is the realm of our daily lives: the stage, the setting of our hopes, fears, dreams and passions.
AIR is the focus of our dreams and ambitions, the sky that we see as the limit of our imagination.
Timeline, hosted by James Stewart, is a program from VPR Classical, a service of Vermont Public Radio. Special thanks to Kari Anderson for her support of this project.
