Do you love to read or hear stories about scary things that go bump in the night?
I mentioned recently that I love audio books and podcasts. Today I want to tell you about my 2nd favorite podcast.: Lore.
Last summer, on the very last day of school, I drove to Fayetteville and hopped in the car with my friend Kelsey. She was on her way to Georgia for her friend Kelly's graduation from Law School.
The drive to Atlanta is about 12 hours and we did not leave until almost 8:00 p.m. Kelsey likes to drive at night. She did all the driving and I did all the riding. I can't even say that I navigated because she has done the drive many times before so she stops that the same gas stations and rest rooms all along the way. She had the route mapped out in her head before we even left. Luckily we didn't hit much traffic because we were driving at night.
The most memorable part of the drive was listening to the Lore podcast. Kelsey had listened to it all before, but since we had 12 hours ahead of us, she started it from the beginning. It was so engaging, that I managed to stay awake the entire trip as we played episode after episode.
Lore is written and produced by Aaron Manke. He researches local folk stories and puts them together in a creepy, thought provoking way.
When I got back from the trip to Georgia, I was pretty obsessed with the podcast. I could not wait to share it with my friends.
I arrived home to Joplin on a Thursday morning, Kelsey driving all night and the two of us switching between music and more Lore podcast to keep us entertained and awake.
That night, after a nap, I loaded up my car with my sister, her daughter and husband and my own husband. We set off for a Memorial Day weekend road trip to San Antonio.
The drive to San Antonio is about 12 hours and we did not leave until after 10:00 p.m. My husband likes to drive at night. Since we had 4 adults, everyone took turns (except for me, I didn't have to drive!). I can't even say that I navigated much because most of the trip everyone helped with that.
The most memorable part of the drive was listening to the Lore podcast. Again. I had just listened to it all before, but since we had a 12 hours ahead of us, I started it from the beginning. It was so engaging that I managed to stay awake the entire trip as we played episode after episode.
Lore is such a great podcast that I listened to it twice in a two week period from beginning to end.
It is a good listen for families and children.
Now, if we are on a short trip to Fayetteville or Tulsa, we usually play one or two of the new episodes to keep us entertained.
Here are a few of my favorite episodes:
