Venture into objects of the past!

I loved the “Sentimental Value,” episode! It was so interesting to hear about Victorian traditions of Memento Mori (something I’m already interested in but learned so much more!). Nat really knows how to tell an engaging story about objects from our history. Off to listen to more!!

A journey into the underknown!

Nat is a wonderful guide on a journey through the almost-forgotten stories of our past. Did you know the story of the first flight simulator begins before the Great Depression? I certainly didn’t, and I can’t wait to hear more!
