Why did I wait?

This is a charming and informative listen that I really took too long to make time for. Like footnotes for The Ghost Story Guys, Lukelore episodes fit nicely before and after longer pods in my listening queue. Great facts to follow down research rabbit holes.

For lovers of mythology and monster lore

The only thing I love more about this podcast than Luke’s deep research into topics I’ve never heard of is his hilariously deadpan sense of humor. Thank you Luke!
