Finding the Void

*Please note that this episode contains explicit language*

What makes a place home? Is it a place that feels like a refuge? Is it somewhere you sleep really, really well? Does it matter if it’s a place you’re not technically allowed to be? What if the place that feels like home lives only in your memory, like a perpetually interrupted dream?


Michael Townsend has made and lost more than one home, but only one of them was born of a unique blend of grief, curiosity, imagination, and mischief.  And only one of them was accessed by crawling through a series of pitch black caverns in the bowels of a giant mall.
