Episode 130: In Plain Sight
Before cell phones and internet access, learning about the world around us took a lot of time. Along the way, there would be gaps in our knowledge—holes that human cultures tended to fill with folklore. And while the creatures they invented to fill those gaps were amazing, it’s how close they often got to reality that makes those stories truly frightening.This episode of Lore was sponsored by: Bombas: Get your hands on the best socks your feet have ever experienced, and Bombas will donate a pair to a person in need.
