Special Collections usually focuses on museums and place full of stuff, but today we'd like to prove that a lack of stuff can be just as interesting. That's right, we're talking about ghost towns. Is a place abandoned because of its remote location, because of a natural disaster, or maybe even a man-made one? Host Jeff Simpson sits down with our producers--Cole Wissinger, Sage Smiley, and Gracia Lee--to explore these unique and empty places. We explore a fascinating corner of Yellowstone National Park, Kolmanskop, Barrow AK, Centralia PA, Pompeii, Shi Cheng, Chernobyl, Pripyat and so much more. Welcome to our first episode of Special Desolations.
