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 13,000 5-star reviews on Apple Podcasts and over 111-million listens, that’s clearly a good thing.

Aaron is working with the producers of The Walking DeadX-Files writer/producer Glen Morgan, and Amazon Studios to bring a television adaptation of the podcast to Amazon Prime Video.

The first season premiered on October 13, 2017. You can read more about the project here.
