Omitted is a weekly history podcast, exploring the lost stories behind history's biggest events. These are the stories that have been omitted from the narrative. These are the tales that could soon be forgotten. For that reason, they must be told.
A Hui Hou
This month, I've been telling you stories about things that scare me, but I've saved this one for the last, for this Halloween week, because for me, it's by far the scariest. This is the final episode of Omitted. This is the story of me. --- Music: "Almost in F" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

True Horror E3 - Orphaned at Sea

Arthur had always dreamed of taking his kids out on the water, but for one of them, that dream would become a nightmare.

True Horror - A Single Spark
America's third coast was in its heyday and Robert Murray Battenfield was excited to see it. This was to be a Christmas like none other, filled with new sights and sounds, all culminating with a day in the city. But when a single spark caused chaos and confusion, Christmas break was cut short. It's a lesson learned the hard way--one we were still working on at least a hundred years later. --- Music: "Least Favorite Things" - Jeremy & Holly Hall of the band Welcome Little Stranger & The Most Wonderful Wonder "Every Mindful" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

True Horror E1 - Anamotazu
The village of Rokusen-sawa is a ghost town today, but unlike most ghost towns, it wasn't a decline in industry or a lack of resources that led to its downfall. This place is perfectly hospitable, aside from the monster that lurks in the hills. This is the story of the anamotazu. --- Music: "Least Favorite Things" - Jeremy & Holly Hall of the band Welcome Little Stranger & The Most Wonderful Wonder "Long Note Four" Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

S4E5 - Tanna
This week, we're heading back to the South Pacific, to an island that's lost in time. There's a mix of old Melanesian Tanna with some... odd... and recently-developed religious practices. WWII airmen and the British royal family have shaped this place in some pretty strange ways, but the people are happy so I guess that's what matters?

S4E4 - Wrangel Island
A few times over the course of Wrangel Island's history, individuals have been left completely alone, but this Arctic isle is the last place you'd want that. If the heat doesn't kill you, then the cold just might. It depends on your species and your will to survive.

S4E3 - Moloka'i
Aloha! Pehea 'oe? E komo mai o Moloka'i! This week, we're heading to my favorite place in the world--the Hawaiian islands, to a peninsula paradise that was once hell on earth for thousands of people.

S4E2 - San Nicolas
61 miles off the coast of Southern California lies the tiny island of San Nicolas. It's a military island and we aren't supposed to be there, but this week, I'm still feeling pretty anarchist after our time on Tristan da Cunha. I want to tell you the story of Juana Maria, the Lone Woman, who called this island home. Audio for this episode courtesy of Zapsplat.com

S4E1 - Tristan da Cunha
It’s vacation time! For the first leg of our journey, we’re heading south of the equator to the remotest inhabited island on the planet. Settled by Americans and Britons, Tristan da Cunha lies 1200 miles from its nearest neighbors, smack dab in the middle of nowhere. They’re a hardy bunch of folks, who can’t be driven away by any monarch or natural disaster. They’ve built their community voluntarily, and you’d have a hard time prying them away.
