Today, I'll be listening to at least one episode, if not more, of my new favorite podcast Lore. Lore's first episode was in March of this year and a new one arrives every two weeks. Since I've just started listening, I have enough to last me till Halloween if I listen to just one episode every night. Not sure I'll be able to stop myself at one, though.
In the words of Lore's host, Aaron Mahnke,
"Lore is a be-weekly podcast about true life scary stories. The people, places and things of our darkest nightmares all have real facts at their core. Each episode of Lore looks into a uniquely scary tale and uncovers the truth behind it. Sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction. "
In my own words, it's perfectly spooky. I've listened to the first four episodes and was appropriately stopped in my tracks several times while cleaning house yesterday because of a particularly spine-chilling moment in a story. Yes, I was cleaning, but tonight I will be laying on the fainting couch with the lights low and a Tipple Tuesday cocktail in my hand while I listen.
So far I've listened to stories about vampires, werewolves, and ghosts. You'll like the haunting music that plays with the stories.
You should also know that Aaron Manhke is a writer of spooky stories. He has published four novels that are available through the Lore website and Manhke's own website. I'm sure I'll be writing about those soon.
