Podcast Recommendation: Lore

"Lore" aims for the heart of the world's creepiest folklore

[ Thu Oct 29 2015 12:39 PM ]

The soft voice of Aaron Mahnke may strike the listeners of his podcast, Lore, as oddly disconcerting. Whether Mahnke is discussing axe-weilding murders in the deep south or the creeping monsters of New England's coastline, what is a mainstay of the broadcast is the question, "what is the implication of this story?"

Listen to a few episodes in anticipation of Halloween, but as Mahnke himself tweeted earlier this week, "Let’s remember: 'Lore' isn’t a 'scary story' podcast. It’s a narrative history podcast about the roots of common superstition & folklore." There's much more to these stories than a thrill; they offer a creative exploration of history lived by everyday people, whose lives were touched by traditions and beliefs with mysterious origins and powerful implications.

Listen to Lore here.
