In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we learn how 18 macabre miniatures housed at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore, Maryland, have shaped the field of criminal investigation.

We have a new book coming out! 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.
