In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit an island in the South Pacific … that no longer really exists. But we chat with a person who got to see volcanic Hunga Tonga-Hunga Haʻapai before it all but disappeared.

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.
