Have you ever wondered where our cultural folklore comes from? Where our legends of vampires and werewolves, ghosts and goblins, and our superstitions come from?

Aaron Mahnke has researched almost 40 different scary tales to date, from across the globe, and presented them here to educate and entertain us about our history, and love of story telling; and he does it so beautifully.

The one thing that shines through these tales of the impossible, is the underlying truth that we all shy away from, the truth that the monsters we fear the most, are ourselves.

Don’t just take my word for it, Lore has just been awarded ‘Best History Podcast’ from the Academy of Podcasters, and rightly so. Well deserved Aaron, congratulations!
