In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, writer Jessica Leigh Hester joins us on a deep dive into the sewer, the subject of her new book, Sewer. We’ll talk about some of the interesting (and disgusting) things she found there … like fatbergs.

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.
