In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we explore the unexpected combination of recipes and graves through the story of Naomi Odessa Miller Dawson’s spritz cookies.

This week we’re celebrating the release of our new bookt! It’s called Gastro Obscura: A Food Adventurer’s Guide, a whirlwind tour of the world’s edible wonders. Pre-order your copy, and as a bonus you’ll get some mathematically efficient cookie cutters!

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.
