A few weeks ago, our staff here at Atlas Obscura put out an episode about our traveling expectations—places that blew us away … or were a major letdown. In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we get to hear your stories.

We’re working on a new slate of episodes like this one that will feature listener stories, and want to hear from you. Tell us about a place you’ve been that made you instantly feel at home. What made it special? Have you returned there? What sticks out about this place that makes it unique to you? Why does it remind you of home?

Give us a call at 315-992-7902 and leave a message telling us your name and story. Just so you know, our mailbox will cut you off after two minutes, so you may need to call multiple times if your story is long.
You can also record a voice memo and email it to us at

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.
