If any of you use the Google Music app, you may have noticed a certain update recently. This update has given us, the users, Podcasts!! Finally, I don’t have to rely on SoundCloud or resort to iTunes (ew) to listen.
And boy, did I find one.
Now, I probably shouldn’t have decided on a spooky podcast while at work during a nice big thunderstorm. My boss succeeded, once, to make me jump just by saying hi & making sure I was ok. I didn’t hear him coming & was too into what I was listening to to notice him approaching. Oops!!
Guys, I don’t know how you all feel about podcasts or spooky things, but I am in love with this one I’ve found.
It’s called Lore, by Aaron Mahnke.
It. Is. FANTASTIC!
I got through 13 episodes, out of what is currently a collection of about 32, during my work shift. And I absolutely love it.
Every episode, Aaron Mahnke chooses a story & delves into the history behind it. It’s origins in the real world. Episode 8 was about H. H. Holmes. You’re going to do a podcast around one of my favourite serial killer stories? You’ve got a fan FOR LIFE!!
Most of the episodes are about folklore from around the world & their roots in reality, while some are about real life spooky things that people experience & see today. The first episode is about vampires, & at some point in the series he covers the New Jersey Devil & Changelings. It is seriously one of the best listening experiences of my life & I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to find it! I mean, it’s been around since March of 2015. That’s plenty long enough that I should be ashamed!!
I have also just been informed that Lore is officially being made into a horror anthology ON TELEVISION!! I know what I’m going to be doing come October! 😀
I’m glad I found this, it’s all very exciting. I found a few more horror podcasts, but haven’t gotten a chance to listen to them just yet. One of them is a CreepyPasta one, & then we’ve got a NoSleep podcast as well. I don’t expect those to help lull me to sleep, that’s for sure. This is the plus side to working night shifts. I always sleep when the sun is up. It’s very calming!!
Aaron Mahnke apparently also writes suspense thriller novels, & I think I might just have to add him to my TBR!
Do you guys have any podcasts that YOU listen to?
Anything you’d recommend?
Have you heard of Lore?
Tell me all about it!!!
