In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, Atlas Obscura staff members share travel experiences that have gone horribly, horribly wrong.

We want to hear your stories too! Give us a call at 315-992-7902 to leave a message telling us your name and about your own near-death travel experience. You can also record a voice memo and email it to us at We look forward to hearing from you!

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.
