A few years ago, Mark Adams made a strange discovery: Everything we know about the lost city of Atlantis comes from the work of one man, the Greek philosopher Plato. Then he made a second, stranger discovery: Amateur explorers are still actively searching for this sunken city all around the world, based entirely on the clues Plato left behind. This week on Arts & Seizures, Mike Edison and guest co-host Pete Zaremba try to solve this famous mystery and chat with New York Times Best Seller Author Mark Adams all about his new book “Meet Me in Atlantis: My Obsessive Quest to Find the Sunken City.” Without giving too much away, Mark explains how he was able to conceive digging out the “kernel of truth” in the dispersed clues left by Plato while maintaining the typical Arts & Seizures banter. Tune in for a hilarious conversation that surely raises more questions than it answers! This program was brought to you by Roberta’s Pizza.
“It’s very hard to get serious academics to talk about Atlantis – it’s like career kryptonite.” [7:30]
