From the creator of the hit podcast Lore comes a new, bite-sized storytelling experience. Each twice-weekly episode features two short tales that take listeners on a guided tour of the unbelievable, the unsettling, and the bizarre.
On display in the Cabinet today are two unusual items. The first is mysterious for what we don't know about it, while the second is unique because of what we do know. We hope you find them both highly entertaining.
Each of today's stories offers us a chance to answer the same question: how much of yourself would you be willing to give up in exchange for an extraordinary life? One of our subjects had no choice, while the other rushed in head-first.
On our tour of the Cabinet of Curiosities today, we will meet two unique individuals. One spent his life looking for fame, while the other wanted to escape it. Whether they each achieved their goals is up for debate.
Sometimes people try hard to fool those around them, while others find themselves being fooled by someone else. Either way, the stories they create are wonderfully entertaining, and delightfully unusual—perfect additions to the Cabinet.
Some people welcome limitations as a way of testing their prowess and endurance. Others have those constraints forced upon them. This tour through the Cabinet will give us a glimpse of both kinds of people.
Some people just aren't who they appear to be. Some of them hide their past deep beneath a layer of deception, while others wear their duplicity in plain sight. Either way, they make for great additions to the Cabinet of Curiosities.
Sometimes the consequences of our actions can lead to a dark destination, while other times it frees us up to transform into something bigger and better. Today's tour of the Cabinet will reveal one of each.

Unique and fascinating individuals are on display in the Cabinet today. One man's example sets the stage for more than a century of entertainment, while another man comes face to face with his own shadow.
