Produced by Hali Palombo.

This week's episode includes some thoughts on CB radio, CB radio slang, the infamous Centralia, Pennsylvania, and the strange Luxor Casino in Las Vegas. 

"Unknown America" is a show that dives into places, people, events, and other aspects of American history that often go overlooked. Through occasional interviews, on-site reporting, frantically obsessive research, and personal accounts, the listener will emerge out the other side just a bit wiser and more curious about the forgotten footnotes of history that make America fascinating, curious, and complicated.

Born in Northfield, Minnesota, she has had a natural curiosity about radio and the Midwestern United States from a young age. Her work often weaves the absurdity and mundane beauty of Illinois into her records, short films, drawings, and paintings.
