In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we hear staff stories about places in the world that made them instantly feel at home, from the Big Easy to the Magic Kingdom.

We’re working on a new slate of episodes that will feature listener stories, and we want to hear yours.

Tell us about a place that makes you feel at home. What made it special? Have you returned there? What sticks out about this place that makes it unique to you? 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 please call in again if you get disconnected. 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.
