Nate DiMeo's The Memory Palace is one of my favorite podcasts ever. Each episode, less than 5 minutes in length, tells the story of an outré, surprising, forgotten, or secret bit of history. Nate is curious, witty, and an engaging presenter. We're delighted that Nate will be presenting The Memory Palace live at our Boing Boing: Ingenuity theatrical experience on Sunday, August 18, in San Francisco!

The battery blows, you spill water or coffee all over the place, or it just shuts down with no explanation, and you’re screwed. […]
