About Lore

The critically-acclaimed Lore is a podcast that shares scary stories, much like one would around a campfire, except these are all from real life. Each 20-30 minute episode tells tales of spooky swamps, haunted hospitals, and ominous others, based on firsthand accounts. The show is so popular that is has nearly 5K 5-star iTunes reviews and over 4 million average monthly listeners, who all enjoy a little fright every other Monday to get their week going. This year, writer, producer, and host Aaron Mahnke announced that a Lore TV show is in the works for 2017. Like their tagline says, “sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction.”
