Released Thursday, 15th October 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
We’ve made a podcast about pigments and colours because why not? I know you can’t see them but we’ve tried really hard to describe them!

When Sir Isaac Newton first draw his colour wheel after seeing light through a prism he matched each colour to a musical note, but our love of colour goes back far further than that, to a time when we maybe weren’t exactly like we are now. Artists all over the world have sought out new pigments, new colours, to wow and amaze, however how they were created and their effects on people’s health hasn’t always been of great concern.
