In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit a medical clown school. The history of medical clowning extends back to Ancient Greece and the time of Hippocrates and is taught today in workshops throughout the world.
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.
