ABOUT THE PODCAST

History is full of stories we think we know. They are old and dark, but time has robbed us of perspective and clarity. They’ve become obscured and misunderstood.

That’s why this series exists: to dig deep and shed light on some of history’s darkest moments. To make it Unobscured. Each season will pair narrative storytelling from Aaron Mahnke, the creator of Lore, with prominent historian interviews.

Season 1

Season 1 takes listeners on a deep dive into the dark and misunderstood events of the Salem witch trials in 1692.
