All summer we’ve been asking you to send us your summer travel stories. In this installment of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we hear a listener’s tale of a theological dispute that became a real money-maker, known to some as “Old Hoaxy.”

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.
