The Unusual History of Every Thing

Oct 9, 2018

Throughout history people have been afraid of the unknown. The scratching on the window, the feeling of being watched, movement out of the corner of their eye. How can you protect yourself from what you can’t see? Many cultures have answered that question through the use of herbs, stones, amulets and prayers. Whatever the case may be, objects of protection are always around us. Join cultural object preservationists, Melanie Dellas and Karen Lacy, as they uncover the unusual histories of every thing. Special thanks to our producer, Jessica Crossman; our graphic designer, Tasha Hobbs; and our loving families. Take our poll at the end of the podcast on our Facebook page!
