Are you breathing air molecules that were once exhaled by Caesar, Joan of Arc, or Madame Curie? And why did Albert Einstein try to break into the refrigerator business? We talked to writer Sam Kean, author of science books like Caesar’s Last Breath and The Disappearing Spoon.

Check out Sam’s website! http://samkean.com/books/caesars-last-breath/
