Created by Nate DiMeo, a public radio veteran and current Artist-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Memory Palace is a storytelling podcast that highlights remarkable people, peculiar events, and everyday experiences throughout history. On this website, visitors can browse the 93 episodes that DiMeo has created so far. Topics include the strange life of child prodigy William James Sidis (who attended Harvard at age 11 in 1909); the feats of avatar Harriet Quimby (the first women to receive a pilot's license); and the stories behind the Cuyahoga River fires, including the much mythologized 1969 fire. DiMeo releases a new episode each month and episodes vary in length from a few minutes to half an hour. On this website, each episode is accompanied by Music, Footnotes, and Ephemera for visitors who want to further explore topics addressed on the show. New visitors may want to check out Where Do I Start? for DiMeo's favorite episodes.
