I want to share with you a great podcast I found out about from maximumfun.org. Maximum Fun is a family of podcasts, and The Memory Palace is their latest addition.
This podcast is the brain child of Nate DiMeo, an author, public radio personality and obvious History buff.
The Memory Palace podcast tells short stories, beautiful ancient anecdotes. In the "Heard, Once" episode for instance, we're told about Jenny Lind, one of the best singers of 19th century, while the point is made that, in those days, there was no way to record music ; You heard something once, and that was it.
