    A one-room museum located in the basement of a church-turned-community arts center is crammed with mementos from a pretty spectacular period in history.

    Reppin our Weird Hometown Traditions

    Reppin our Weird Hometown Traditions

    From Tractor Day to an Italian style wedding to the streets of New York City to throwing water into the air in negative 20 degree weather, we take a tour of some quirky hometown traditions.

    Does the place you grew up have any unique traditions? We would love to hear from you.

    Tell us about your hometown’s weird or unique local tradition. Walk us through what goes down—who’s there and what’s happening? Is there an interesting history behind it? What was your relationship to this tradition like when you were growing up—did you partake? What’s your relationship to it now? Did/does it play a role in how you think about the world, or the corner of it you come from?

    Give us a call at 315-992-7902 and leave a message telling us your name and story. Or record a voice memo and email it to us at Hello@AtlasObscura.com.

    Atlas Obscura Live: Two Places And A Lie

    Atlas Obscura Live: Two Places And A Lie

    This week wasn't special only because of the eclipse. We also recorded our first live show, during the Atlas Obscura Ecliptic Festival in Hot Springs, Arkansas. In this episode, hear host Dylan Thuras try to stump guests -- astrobiologist Dr. Graham Lau and science writer Rebecca Boyle -- and get them to guess which strange, incredible place is real or fake. Then, the tables are turned and Dylan has to guess. Special thanks to everyone who made this possible!

Best podcast in the world ❤️🐌💌🌍

Finally something different about places most didn’t know about. I found a podcast and website where i want to read every single article… I discovered it when setting up my SnailMailChronicles.com project and it was love at first sight! Right up my alley.
