    Creatures of the Heat

    Creatures of the Heat

    As a man of self-described "yeti build", Luke is no great fan of the heat but he is a fan of heat/summer based folklore, including the Phoenix, Kunekune (the adorable pig AND the yokai), and Djinn to name a few. Join Luke and beat the heat with knowledge, or at least use the knowledge to distract you from the temperature.

Fantastic!

I spent the day after Christmas binging on LukeLore while cleaning my house. Already on season 2! They are full of great info and the perfect length to listen to while on the go!

Bite-sized Folklore

I think of this podcast as the little secret The Ghost Story Guys are keeping close to their chests. Luke finds some proper folklore gems from across the globe - brilliant.
