Mythology Crossover: La Llorona
Today we’re bringing you a special episode from another Spotify Original from Parcast. If you enjoy it, check out Mythology on Spotify, or wherever you listen to podcasts!
She’s the spirit of a woman, crying unceasingly for her lost children… whom she herself killed. But La Llorona isn’t simply a tragic figure who lost her mind with jealousy. She’s the ghost of Mexico’s bloody past.

A historic residence in Salem, Massachusetts has a particularly witchy history: it sits atop the foundation of the home of George Corwin — the sheriff responsible for arrests and executions during the Salem Witch Trials.
Dictators: The Rise & Fall of a Roman Emperor
They’re natural-born leaders, hungry for absolute power. Every week on Dictators, delve into the minds and motives of history’s most infamous rulers — people who rose through the ranks toward radicalism, eliminating anyone who stood in their way. This week, track the rise and fall of Nero, an emperor who led Rome to destruction. Hear a clip from Part 1 here, then head to Dictators for the rest of the episode. Dictators is free to listen on Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Hex Hollow Murder House

Stop Urban Legends please
I enjoy your haunted places but I can’t listen to urban legends- too scary because they could be in our neighborhood. Put them in their own podcast please! I may have to unsubscribe...
Love this podcast. Very well written and researched with a fantastic narrator. Listen to it. You’ll dig it. If you don’t, you’re dead inside. Mostly.
