As we merrily traipse down the sunlit city streets of our mundane daily existences, most of us remain blissfully unaware that an entirely different world might lie just beneath our feet. On this episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny don their mining helmets, jump in their subterrene, and tunnel deep into the earth to uncover a few of the strange, forgotten wonders that lurk below the surface, including vast underground cities and mysterious tunnel networks, creepy abandoned military bunkers, a priceless treasure trove possibly hidden beneath a famous landmark, and even a shadowy secret society that gets up to all sorts of delightfully clandestine activities beneath the avenues of one of the world’s great metropolises. Specific topics of discussion include the Burlington Bunker, Dixia Cheng, Derinkuyu and the underground cities of Cappadocia, erdstall tunnels, the Wieliczka Salt Mine, the lost library of Ivan the Terrible, and the secretive collective of French catacomb dwellers known as the UX.
