Lore Podcast

Winner of the iTunes "Best of 2015" Award

Lore is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed podcast about true life scary stories. Our fears have roots. Lore exposes the darker side of history, exploring the creatures, people, and places of our wildest nightmares.

Because sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction.

Each episode examines a new dark tale from history, and presents it in a style that's been compared to a campfire experience. With over 4,200 5-star reviews on iTunes and over 3.2-million monthly listens, that's clearly a good thing.

New episodes are released every two weeks, on Mondays.

Aaron Mahnke

Aaron is the writer, host, and producer of Lore, as well as the author of a number of supernatural thrillers. Aaron has a deep love of the mysterious and frightening that began with Unsolved Mysteries and The X-Files — a love that continues to this day. Basically, he's a nerd for anything unexplainable or supernatural.

Aaron lives with his family in the historic Boston area, in the very heart of Lovecraft Country and the epicenter of the Salem witch trials. You can follow him here on Twitter, and learn more about him on his website.


Yes, Lore is on its way to the small screen! While the process began just 6 months after Lore was launched, the news didn't go public until April 2016. Aaron is working with two powerhouse companies to make it happen: Propogate Content (responsible for Apple's first original television program, featuring will.i.am), and Valhalla Entertainment, the producer behind The Walking Dead.

In October of 2016 it was announced that the Lore television adaptation has been picked up by Amazon Studios, and a full 10-episode season has been ordered. Expected premiere is sometime mid-2017.
