Audio Dime Museum: Carnivale

From the Just A Story team, comes a weekly, serialized experimental storytelling podcast which explores historical legends through the artifacts on display in the Audio Dime Museum. Part guided tour, part radio drama; each episode presents the curious story of one object from the collection. Meet your guide on this journey, The Curator, and learn her secrets as you delve into the world of possibility, magic and the unknown. Merging the suspenseful style of mystery with the conventions of ghost stories and the peculiarity that only historical fact can provide, this podcast is not for the faint of heart.Please begin at the beginning, with the *PROLOGUE* and proceed through the collection accordingly. Unlike most stories, this one does not improve when listened to in reverse.For more on history and urban legends, check out Just A Story: The Urban Legend Podcast : https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/just-story-urban-legend-podcast/id1065407404?mt=2 www.justastorypod.com@justastorypod

Vol 1 Ch 5: The Strangest Stranger

The Curator wasn’t expecting company, or the relic that appears before you in the cabinet. We learn the legend of the outlaw gang of the American Revolution, and seek their treasure. We will also witness an occult ceremony, and engage directly with its product, and the idea that the definitions of good and evil are is subject to comparison and relative to circumstance. ----If you are a new listener please begin with the PROLOGUE----- Score: The Count Of Monte Cristo by Edward Shearmur Thank you to Purple Planet Music and Freesounds.org  For more on history and urban legends, check out Just A Story: The Urban Legend Podcast : https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/just-story-urban-legend-podcast/id1065407404?mt=2www.justastorypod.com justastorypod@gmail.com @justastorypod

Vol 1 Ch 2: Ravens and Writing Desks

Chapter 2 of our story reveals that sometimes the smallest details truly do contain the devil. We examine a murder trial from early 20th century Chicago, and look at the privileges and responsibilities that accompany greatness. The Curator finds out that the museum seems to have a mind of its own, and that it may know better than she does, what stories you need to hear.
