Winner of the "Best History Podcast 2016" by Podcast Academy

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 historical tale in a modern campfire experience. With over 6,300 5-star reviews on Apple Podcasts and an average of 6-million monthly listens, that's clearly a good thing.

New episodes are released every two weeks, on Mondays.


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 (with former NatGeo head Howard T. Owens and former NBC head Ben Silverman), and Valhalla Entertainment, the producer behind The Walking Dead.

In October of 2016 it was announced that the series has been picked up by Amazon Studios, and a full season has been ordered. Also revealed, Glen Morgan (legendary X-Files writer and producer) has joined the team as showrunner. The expected premiere is sometime mid-2017.



In March of 2017, it was revealed that Aaron would be bringing Lore to the printed page. In a major deal with Del Rey Books (Penguin Random House), the wheels have been set in motion for The World of Lore book series.

Great stories shine in any medium, and adapting the podcast to the book format is an exciting opportunity. Expect the same beauty, attention to detail, and thrilling experience you've come to expect from Lore.

The first book in the series, Monstrous Creatures, is available for preorder here, with a release date of October 24, 2017.
