The Memory Palace Rules

I love almost everything about this series. Each episode is a short, well written, funny and compellingly told story about the past. If history was always told like this, there’d be whole lot more unemployed history majors out there begging for change.

I recommend these as ME or ATC drop-ins. The podcast has already gotten a ton of attention online. Be ahead of the curve and start broadcasting them now. Your audience will thank you for it.

Intro and Outro

INTRO:

I'd prefer as little intro as possible. the stories are designed to unfold in a such away that a content-based intro will step on the story's toes. So, keep it generic: "a history story from Nate DiMeo and the memory palace" or some such.

OUTRO:

some variation on: "to hear more stories from the memory palace visit thememorypalace.us" or "to hear more history stories from Nate DiMeo ((dih-MAY-oh)) visit thememorypalace.us"
