Season 1

Small Town Getaways

For the very first season of Not Your Average Bucket List, we covered some of the best small towns in the United States, based on our hit editorial series released in 2022.

Each week, we took listeners on an audio adventure through an incredible small town in the United States. If you love charming small towns full of history and hidden gems, then come take a journey with us for a limited-season exploration from the Hawaiian island of Oahu to the coast of Massachusetts. From coastal gems like Saugatuck, Michigan, all the way to Cayucos, California, we uncovered spots ideal for nature lovers, history buffs, foodies, and shopaholics alike!


Season 2

Local Lore & Legends

We’ll research some of the most popular and creepiest urban legends, abandoned buildings, scary stories, and beyond each week. Have you ever heard of the Jersey Devil? Do you know the Ohio State Reformatory history? We cover all of this and more…
