Ghost stories.

All places have ghosts. 

Say you ate a corned beef special at Second Avenue Deli (when it was actually on Second Avenue) in 1992. In some ways, you will forever be eating a corned beef special in that place on earth–even if it’s now a bank. Perhaps you have a story to tell about it?

 Broadcastr (which launches today) is capturing the ghosts of places.

This from the excorcists, Scott Lindenbaum (who does a mean air-to-fakie) and Andy Hunter: features a map-based interface for micro-podcasts on any and every subject under the sun, from a band’s tour diary to real-time reporting from global hotspots.

For the past three months, the Broadcastr team has been recording stories and sourcing archives from notable cultural figures, unique individuals, artists, performers, and organizations and pinning those stories to Broadcastr’s interactive online map of the world. The service will launch with more than 3,000 stories in locations ranging from Antarctica to Zimbabwe.

On Broadcastr Mobile (coming in January to Android and iPhone), users will be able to take a GPS-enabled walk as stories connected to their surroundings stream into their headphones, like a museum tour of the entire world.
