How do we understand the places we visit (and even the places we’ve never been)? As a shorthand, we use agreed-upon touchstones - famous places, famous people famous foods, and, of course, dreams. Dreamed-up people and dreamed-up places and dreamed-up things. This podcast looks at a culture's icons - real and imagined - to see what they say about the culture itself, as well as the outsiders who've elevated those icons above all others.

Impressive new (to me) podcast

I'm a newcomer to this podcast mainly because season 2 is focused on Boston. I listened to the first episode about the Citgo sign and the Boston Marathon. I only equated that Citgo sign with Fenway Park. I never realized it was such a big deal for marathon runners. Nor did I realize how big the Boston marathon was vs other major marathons. I can't get past the fact that this podcast is done by only one person. Really well-done.

This Show is Iconic

In my mind there is a show where an icon is discussed with reference to its location in an incredibly cursory and uninteresting way. This? This is not that show. Charles quite literally explores every avenue, every nook and cranny, and presents the listener with a very robust and engaging story. As we draw closer to the beginning of Season 2, which moved the show from jolly olde England to cranky New England, now is the perfect time to start listening and catch up.

Excellent listening

It’s well produced, interesting, and he picks great topics. The music and other effects are a wonderful touch.
