Episode 107: Sight Unseen
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. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Squarespace: If you're passionate about it, show it off.

Episode 106: The Collection
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. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Casper: American-made, hybrid mattresses that’s insanely comfortable—and affordable.

Episode 104: Anchored
The ocean is very good at taking things from us, but we are equally skilled at not forgetting. Still, no matter how many stories we tell about lost ships and vanished loved ones, it will never bring them back. At least, that’s what most people believe. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: The Great Courses Plus: Hundreds of topics taught by professors and experts, all in one enormous video library.

Episode 102: Devil in the Details
Most of us live incredibly busy lives, and because of all that distraction, we tend to miss the little things. Whether it’s a forgotten birthday, or the small puddle of water beneath your water heater in the basement, not noticing things can have consequences. And sometimes, those details can be a matter of life and death. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Fracture: Fracture is changing the way you print photos.

Episode 101: Worn Away
Like a well-loved pair of shoes, or those jeans you bought in college and never gave up on, some things become worn out over time. But when that thing is a physical location, eroded away by thousands of years of human activity and deep, rich folklore, what sort of nightmares might we expect to pour in through the hole? There’s only one way to find out. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: The Great Courses Plus: Hundreds of topics taught by professors and experts, all in one enormous video library.

great podcast, its like Aaron crawled into the dark regions of my mind and tailor made these episodes just for me. keep up the great work. especially loved the Mackinac island one. More Michigan lore please. maybe an episode on the fabled dogman and all the craziness that surrounds the legend? just a thought. thanks for all the hours of entertainment. keep up the great work

Did a walking tour in NOLA and their story was told along with the idea the house remains haunted by the slaves tortured and murdered within the walls. Weird things and bad luck have plagued owners since the days of the Lalaurie family.

I usually have trouble paying attention to "recorded books" but, the Lore series has me hooked. See, I am a brain injury survivor with right side frontal lobe damage. One of the affects of that, is aphasia, which causes me to have difficulty with reading comprehension. The author's voice is so soothing, and he talks at a nice pace, not too fast.

no sympathy for typhoid Mary at all. they said they could cure her with surgery. she refused. they said you can go free as long as you stop being a cook cuz that's how you're getting people sick. she did it again. she was locked up cuz she didn't give a crap about other people. not because she was Irish and lower class. screw her.

I can handle one commercial at a time - maybe one at the beginning, one in the middle - hell, even two at a time, if they're short enough. You could fit four or five in there; one or two at thirty seconds each at the beginning, the same in the middle, and maybe another brace of them before the denoument - but holy jesus Aaron; we all know about Casper and the rest of these things. New listeners - or rather members of isolated tribes living in the jungle who've somehow never heard of the handful of products smothering half the podcasts and YouTube videos out there - can get the message in less than what feels like a half hour seminar. And if you absolutely insist on dragging these things out, try to maybe change them up once a century. I've become so annoyed by the sheer volume and length of these advertisements that I wouldn't take a Casper mattress if someone gave it to me - and if a hellofresh order was delivered to my house as a gift it'd go straight to the trash - regardless of how hungry I was. I may be a little extreme in my utter loathing of the universal presence and utter inanity of advertising of nearly every sort, but I know I'm not the only one who's totally sick of this stuff. Oh, and loved the show. ❤️
