ABOUT The PODCAST

Winner of the iTunes "Best of 2015" & "Best of 2016", and winner of "Best History Podcast 2016" by the Academy of Podcasters.

Lore is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed podcast about true life scary stories. 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 more than 17,500 5-star reviews on Apple Podcasts and over 130-million listens, that's clearly a good thing.

New episodes are released every two weeks, on Mondays.



From the executive producer of The Walking Dead and an executive producer of The X-Files, this anthology series brings the podcast to life, uncovering the real-life events that spawned our darkest nightmares.

Season 1 is available exclusively to Amazon Prime members here, and Season 2 is scheduled for Fall 2018.

This book series from Penguin Random House gathers classic and rare tales from Aaron Mahnke's hit podcast Lore, and combines them into thematic volumes with gorgeous illustrations and beautiful typography.
