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.

Episode 83: Carried Away
Humans have always been more than a little bit superstitious, and one of the oldest and most universal of those beliefs is the curse. The story of how that belief has evolved in relation to one particular culture, though, is both powerful and frightening. It would serve us well to not get swept up in the lies. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Casper: American-made, hybrid mattresses that’s insanely comfortable—and affordable.

Our lives have a way of becoming magnets that attract pain and suffering. Some of us go through more than others, but in the end, we’re all running from something.

I started listening to your podcast and quickly fell in love with it— after visiting New Orleans and walking by the Lalaurie house.

hey love the show but please make sure you use correct scientific terms. The black plague is called Bubonic Plague, Yersinea Pestis is the scientific name of the bacteria that carries the plagues. Similarly bacteria grow resistant to antibiotics not viruses.

Shubham Bhushan It's a podcast...not a microbiology course. The "laymen" terms are to make it more accessible to those that listen to this podcast for entertainment, not education.
