The people, places, and things of our darkest nightmares all have real facts at their core. Each episode of Lore looks into a uniquely scary tale and uncovers the truth behind it."
There are a lot of podcast out there about supernatural stuff, folklore, etc. But haven't found one yet that is this well made. Each episode is a different topic with some background on the subject and some true stories, and philosophical wrap up about why we as humans can stretch ourselves to believe in such things. The storytelling is well written and the background music is fantastic. Really appreciate how well crafted each episode is, usually podcasts on topics like these are big ramble fests (which is fine, but it's nice to have something a bit more put together.)
This latest episode "Black Stockings" was so shocking considering the time when it took place. It's about the Irish folklore of the "changeling" or faerie. When a person or baby is believed to have been taken by a fairy and in their place, is a "changeling" something that looks exactly like them, but acts differently.
