In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, two members of the Atlas Obscura team go in search of the true story that may have inspired the literary classic, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.

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.
