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 16,100 5-star reviews on Apple Podcasts and over 123-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.

The entire 6-episode first season is available exclusively to Amazon Prime Video members here.

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.
