abandoned: The All-American Ruins Podcast | Episode 8: Norman Bates and Gerald Foos and Me
Location: Sawyerkill Motel — Saugerties, NY
Hi, friend. The eighth episode from the first season of abandoned: The All-American Ruins Podcast is available now:
If you’re feeling extra generous, I ask you to rate/review/subscribe on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
In 1960, the world was introduced to the fictional voyeur and motel owner Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock’s revolutionary horror film Psycho; and in 2016, the world was introduced to the nonfictional voyeur and motel owner Gerald Foos in Gay Talese’s book The Voyeur’s Motel. In this episode I’m introduced to both (in my imagination) as I wander the abandoned Sawyerkill Motel just off the New York State Thruway in Saugerties, NY.
(Note: For the best immersive experience, I strongly suggest you wear headphones 🎧 for every episode of abandoned: The All-American Ruins Podcast.)
This episode features:

This episode is based on Chapter 7 of the All-American Ruins blog.
