AlyMcBeal27 ,

The best

i found lore by chance when I studying criminology and it at uni before I changed to nursing and gets me through all my work.

Ive restarted the podcast so many times that I’ve lost count

i love folklore and the history behind all the episodes and often find myself passing on the information

bossyphotographer ,

Episode 1

I only just found this podcast after seeing it listed in an article reviewing spooky podcasts. Despite the disclaimer I actually listened to the original first episode and really enjoyed it. An interesting mix of history and story. Looking forward to more episodes.
