The Secret Podcast
Back in 1982 a man named Byron Priess decided it would be a good idea to publish a treasure hunt. He spent a year or so traveling around the country, burying small ceramic boxes two feet underground. He wrote a few poems, and had a friend of his paint some images. The goal was to get the reader to match a poem with a verse, produce a treasure map of sorts, then go dig up the treasures. He thought it would be easy. 40 years later we are finding out he was wrong. So far two treasures have been found. One in Chicago, and one in Cleveland… so at least we know they are real. That’s about all we know for sure. This project started with Byron recruiting a bunch of his friends. Sean and Ted to write some descriptions of strange creatures that Byron’s friend JoEllen sculpted out of clay and cloth, which were photographed by his childhood friend Ben. Then Byron’s friends John Palencar, John Pierard, and Overton Loyd made a bunch of images with the sole purpose of confusing all of us. The project was created by a community of friends, and it is my opinion that a community of friends is the only way to solve it.
34. A conversation with William Stout
On this episode we have a conversation with Byron's best friend, William Stout. This episode was recorded almost two years ago! It took a long time for me to get proper permissions from people and do some editing. A good bit of this interview had to be cut out, but hopefully we can revisit these conversations with Bill in the future.
