In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit a mountaintop near a picturesque Colorado town, where you’ll find the frozen corpse of a Norwegian grandpa. We get the tale of how this came to be from the person who for years has trekked up and down the mountain for this unique preservation mission.

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.
