These collections showcased small, yet wondrous worlds and served as precursors to the museum. The Cabinet Of Curiosities Podcast curates a collection of the extraordinary and the mysterious.

Wow!!! LOVE this podcast!!!
I just stumbled across this podcast while searching for stories on the Fox Sisters, and WOW, it is just great!!! The narrator does an amazing job, and there is just the right mix of perfectly appropriate music. I can't wait to hear the rest of the episodes I've downloaded and more in the future. Keep up the good work!!!
So spooky, so good!!
This is such a fun show! Although many people will recognize some of the stories in these podcasts, the way Sarah Troop tells them makes them seem as fresh (and as haunting) as the first time we heard them. The music and sound quality are excellent, and Sarah's narration is perfect. I highly reccomend this show to anyone who wants a new take on old stories and to anyone who enjoys being creeped out a bit.
One last warning--unless you're a total skeptic, DON'T listen to the BEK episode at night! It had me running around the house locking all the windows, lol!
i love this podcast! where did u go? :(
