How do we understand the places we visit (and even the places we’ve never been)? As a shorthand, we use agreed-upon touchstones - famous places, famous people famous foods, and, of course, dreams. Dreamed-up people and dreamed-up places and dreamed-up things. This podcast looks at a culture's icons - real and imagined - to see what they say about the culture itself, as well as the outsiders who've elevated those icons above all others.

This is perhaps the first and only podcast that made me cry tears of--well, they were joyful, but they were bittersweet, and they were cathartic. It was the episode about Terry Pratchett and Discworld--an episode that is over two years old as I write this--and the show has not only maintained that quality since then, but gone to new heights and lengths to bring us the stories of the places and symbols that surround us. I consider it a must-listen!
