There is a lot in life that we can control, but no system is perfect. Every now and then, circumstances pull the rug out from underneath us and leave us powerless. But at least one surprise turn of events had a different affect, and the results have left us with questions that are still unanswered today. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Fracture: Fracture is changing the way you print photos.

Episode 86: Under Siege
Our bodies are a fortress, and every day, they suffer through attacks from the outside. Over the centuries, we’re become very good at protecting ourselves from illness and disease, but all of those efforts assume everyone around us will be responsible. Illness, though, has often been misused—sometimes maliciously and other times through sheer ignorance—and the results have been horrifying. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Casper: American-made, hybrid mattresses that’s insanely comfortable—and affordable.

these are just a few examples of the Santa clause myth.jesus ,yule logs,mistletoe. all Druidic. mix mashed together with Christian mythology. it's all 9 thousand year old campfire stories. the belief in sky gods is mans ultimate undoing. pft, hrumph, balderdash and poppycock.

Lore is and always will be my first love. I can't help but wonder though, is "unexplainable" an American thing? Or is it preferential usage of the term? Inexplicable just seems more correct ... though it surely takes nothing away from this excellent production.

This podcast is definitely one of my favorites. I feel a pretty close connection with it because when I was in high school, I did a weekly radio show on the school's radio station that was eerily similar to this. The theme of my show was exploring the paranormal history of the rural areas of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is a state rich in history and folklore, which are subjects I have always been interested in. This podcast brings back a lot of really good memories and is inspiring me to get back into broadcasting. Aaron, keep up the great work and thank you for all the great stories. Most of all, thanks for inspiring me to pursue a dream I've had since I was a kid.

I LOVE this show! Thanks for keeping me and my mind from killing people at work, expanding my mind and great entertainment. They may own my body for 8 hours but my ears and mind are my own...and I willingly surrender them to Lore!

did you have to rip people out of the story with an unneeded star wars reference?
