Most locations have an isolated history that is unique to them and only them. But some places have served as the entry point for a bigger idea and a larger impact on history as a whole. Sadly, that sort of significance always seems to come at a price, and it’s a cost that’s difficult to forget.* * *This episode of Lore was sponsored by:Fracture: Fracture wants to change the way you think about printing your photos.

Throughout history, cultures around the world have explored the world of medicine in search of tools that can heal our bodies. We’ve used plants and minerals, of course, but the most powerful tool might also be the most taboo—and it’s been right in front of us the entire time.* * *This episode of Lore was sponsored by:ZipRecruiter: Post your job opening to over 100 job sites with a single click, and then let their powerful technology connect the best candidates to you inside their easy-to-use Dashboard.

Of all the parts of life that we can depend on, one of the darkest parts is loss. That’s the trouble with being surrounded by mortal, fragile human beings; at some point, the people we love won’t be here anymore. Which is why the mourning process is the playground for all sorts of powerful bits of folklore.* * *This episode of Lore was sponsored by:Casper: American-made, hybrid mattresses that’s insanely comfortable—and affordable.

The deepest mysteries come from the places we haven’t fully explored, or where we lack the control that makes us feel safe. And yet one of the most universally mysterious places of all is closer than you might believe.

Not everything can be perfect. Even when there’s a clean slate and we’re given the resources and tools to make something great, humans have a way of building their flaws into it. And while there are many examples of locations built on a crooked foundation, few have the haunting historical tales to back it up.* * *This episode of Lore was sponsored by:Article: Beautiful, modern, high-quality furniture without the frustration of going into a big showroom—and flatmate shipping on all orders for just $49!

There’s a lot in life we can count on. Death, taxes, the sunrise, and political turmoil--these are all guaranteed, safe bets. But outside that, everything else is an assumption. And sometimes we get it tragically, horribly wrong.* * *This episode of Lore was sponsored by:Squarespace: If you're passionate about it, show it off.

Our oceans are some of the most remote regions on the planet. Because of that, people have filled that darkness and space with stories that reflect our common fears and deepest suspicious. Unfortunately, the pages of history offer less reason than we might hope for, leaving us to wonder exactly what might be out there, lurking beneath the waves.Learn more about your ad choices.

We like to think we’ll see it coming. That we can plan ahead and prepare—even defend ourselves. But death comes in all shapes and sizes, sometimes so small and featureless that it slips through our carefully constructed defenses without us even knowing. And history shows us that all of us should be worried about that.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Humans have a tendency to collect things. From baseball cards to Twitter followers, we enjoy bringing everything into one place. But when that collection represents the very worst of humanity—both in how it’s managed and where it comes from—the act of collecting comes with dire consequences.Learn more about your ad choices.

We love to simplify things. Easy is better than complex, after all, and simple things are easy to understand. Sadly, though, the people around us are far from simple; they are complex and layered, with deep, hidden stories just waiting to be discovered. Learn more about your ad choices.

Interesting information about the Hand Of Glory. I saw Flash episode where it was part of the story. It also shows up in the original classic horror film The Wicker Man at one point.

Yeesh. You’d think he’d bother to mention most news articles on Ambrosia LLC are misleading, and that there is no scientific basis for it?

I listened to this episode as I drove to a hospital to pick up a body... I have seen lots of human bodies, some murders, some suicides, some highway accidents, most just from 'natural causes'.

A lot of positive feedback here, which is fine, but for balance I really did not like this podcast. We listened to a few and the stories are rambling, poorly connected and the narrator is not only a mediocre storyteller but came across as unbearably pretentious. I understand people liking it but wanted to highlight that it may not be for everyone

Henry Ha For spooky stories specifically, no not really I'm afraid. I haven't explored too much but a quick Google revealed a Reddit page with plenty of choice, would probably be a good starting point

One of my favorites. The unique storytelling style is addictive. Aaron does a terrific job of making things chilling and spooky without hamfisted shock and gore.
