For fans of quirky narrative histories, such as Confederates in the Attic and How Things Work, UNDERGROUND explores the mystical, primal, and enduring fascination we have with the worlds beneath our feet.

Will Hunt has explored caves and catacombs, subway systems and ancient mines: all varieties of holes in the ground. He's tracked down people who, for one reason or another, have developed an underground fixation similar to his own: each an incarnation of Hermes, who could see and touch the underworld in ways others could not. Underground is a place of overlapping, often contradictory associations: it is a space that evokes death and burial even as it is a place of origins; it fills us with primordial dread, even as we seek refuge there in times of strife; we dig in search of riches and we bury our most toxic waste. it is a spawning ground for political insurgence and where governments hide their most sensitive secrets. We excavate in search of scientific truth even as it is the ultimate wellspring of mythology, magic, and spirits. This is an idiosyncratic, fascinating cultural history about our relationship with subterranean spaces. Download and start listening now!
