In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit an abandoned hospital outside Boston, Massachusetts, that was originally conceived as a place to help people with mental health issues. But it wound up doing more harm than good.
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.
