abandoned: The All-American Ruins Podcast

From a young age, Blake had an obsession with Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and fantasized about time traveling back to 1979 to explore the film set. Since that proves to be impossible, the next best thing is an adventure to The Nevele Grande Hotel, an abandoned ski resort near the Catskill Mountains. Join Blake as he wanders the halls of the Borscht Belt hotel with Shelley Duvall while the ghosts of guests past surround them both.

Blake grew up next to the United States Air Force Academy, so it's fitting that his first venture to an abandoned space during the pandemic is an abandoned air force base near Saratoga Springs, NY on Memorial Day 2020. Join Blake as he time-travels to the Cold War-- when the paranoid threat of nuclear war with Russia incited the US government to produce a public awareness campaign (propaganda) starring a cartoon turtle named Bert.

This episode of abandoned: The All-American Ruins Podcast is dedicated to the People of Ukraine. Happy Memorial Day.
