Description

There are very few bits of folklore that haven’t spread around the globe over the past few centuries. Yet every now and then, something fresh and distinct pops up. But just because it’s relatively new doesn’t mean it’s safe.

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.

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. Just how far we might go to get away is a mystery, but it could never top the lengths one person went to to escape a life of pain and guilt.

Episode 76: Talk Show
Life is a lot like a big budget movie. We click play, and then let the action wash over us. There are highs and lows, laughter and tears, and then it’s all over and the screen goes silent. The dead can’t talk back, something most people are thankful for. Still, there have been rare moments in history when that rule appears to have been broken—and the results were extraordinary. * * * 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.

Episode 74: All Fall Down
The sky is a source of life for everything on this planet. Rain to quench our thirst and sunlight for our food. We don’t look up too often these days, but that hasn’t changed our dependance on it. But occasionally, the sky can be a source of something else. Something much less typical than rain or snow or sunshine. History, it seems, paints a very frightening picture of the world above us. * * * 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 72: A Grave Mistake
Humans have a seemingly never-ending list of fears. The dark of night, small spaces, open water…there doesn’t seem to be an area of life that doesn’t come with a few reasons to take pause and be afraid. But the greatest of those fears might just come at the end of our lives, and for over a century, that fear drove people to unimaginable things.   Special Soundtrack Chad Lawson (#1 iTunes, #1 Billboard, #1 Amazon) has written another full album of original music for this episode. That album, A Grave Mistake: The Lore Variations, is available today on CD, vinyl, and streaming.

And it’s in the shadows that the greatest threats still exist—creatures from our darkest nightmares that threaten our feeling of safety. Which has led some to strike out into the dark and hunt them. * * * 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.

Episode 58: The Devil’s Beat
Human culture has a different expression no matter where you go. Despite that variety, though, we do share one common thread: music. And while it has typically been a source of joy, there have been moments when music has brought something else: fear, pain, and horror. * * * This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Audible: Audible content includes an unmatched selection of audiobooks, original audio shows, news, and more from the leading book, magazine, and newspaper publishers.

Episode 46: Dark Conclusions
For almost as long as there have been stories of supernatural beings, there have been tales of those who hunt them. From ancient traditions to Hollywood blockbusters, these characters have filled our imaginations. But in 1969, those ideas became real.   Special Soundtrack Chad Lawson (#1 iTunes, #1 Billboard, #1 Amazon) has written a full album of original music for this episode. That album, Dark Conclusions: The Lore Variations, is available today for purchase and streaming.
