Live in the Memory Palace: Ferris wheels, giant lobsters, and Samuel Morse

Nate DiMeo is a master storyteller whose wonderful podcast The Memory Palace reveals hidden, forgotten, and surprising bits of history through short narratives. At Boing Boing: Ingenuity, our live theatrical event on August 18, Nate presented the Memory Palace on stage for the first time, complete with sound effects that he manually triggered. Nate shared three stories, taking the audience on a captivating journey from the construction of the first Ferris Wheel in 1893, to a time when massive lobsters beckoned to us from the seashore, and closed with the tragic tale of why painter S.F.B. Morse invented the telegraph. I hope you enjoy this video of the experience.
