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.

Episode 97: Misplaced
For thousands of years, humans have built rules and procedures for handling the various curveballs that life throws our way—and we place a lot of trust in those systems. Most of the time, it all works properly, but there are moments when human nature and our belief in the unusual throw a wrench in the gears.  * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Unobscured: A new long-form documentary podcast that explores one dark historical moment over the course of 12 episodes. Season 1 premiered on October 3, and begins the story of the 1692 Salem witch trials. Written and hosted by Lore creator Aaron Mahnke, each episode features his trademark narrative storytelling, along with historian interviews and a gorgeous new soundtrack by Chad Lawson.

Episode 92: Stronger
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.

The description of imbunche fascinated me a lot so I looked it up. The Wikipedia article says one of the leg is affixed to its back, not the arm. This subtle difference in description made it all the more fascinating. You should update it if it is possible. Thank you.

I have a fear of making travel arrangements. Seriously, I worry from the time I book the arrangements until I am in bed. It's weird and I don't know where it comes from. Car trips don't bother me at all.
