The Rochester Fringe Festival is underway, and one event takes you out of the center of the city and back in time.

The Memory Palace's on-site listening experience at High Falls revisits the story of Sam Patch, the famous daredevil who is perhaps most famous in Rochester for having died here.

Nate DiMeo says his inspiration for the Memory Palace podcast comes from this idea that we all exist in a specific moment in history, and that moment shapes us.
