Curiouser and Curiouser
It is American tradition, but what is it? Before the three ring circus, before the 1932 cult classic “Freaks”, before American Horror Story … There was the dime museum. Join us this week, as we explore the storied history of these compendiums of curiosity and ask what legacy they’ve left behind. Step right up for a grand tour of the birthplace of innumerable urban legends.
As we begin our new experimental, historical storytelling podcast, Audio Dime Museum, we invite you all to learn why we find these palaces of the bizarre so fascinating, and why we just can’t look away.
