In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit a tiny town in West Virginia that takes the idea of “living life to the fullest” to a different level with its embrace of daredevil activities. Like, for instance, a day where people sign up to jump off a bridge.

This Small Town, Big Story episode is produced in partnership with Go USA TV. Learn more about Bridge Day here.
