In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we speak with the author of several critically praised books, Lucy Sante (Whiting Writer’s Award and Best Literary Criticism Award), and about digging into place and how our relationship to places can shape our identities.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
