2017 Winner: Lore

Illustration by Christopher Downes


Listeners hit play on Lore nearly 6 million times each month. Those are impressive numbers for a little indie horror podcast born in Danvers. Hosted and recorded by Aaron Mahnke, who is now fittingly based out of Salem, the award-winning podcast explores spooky folklore and urban legends, bringing academic research and historical context to a campfire story format. The deliciously unnerving podcast is so popular that Mahnke recently inked both a book deal and a contract with Amazon, which is set to release an anthology-style, 10-episode series this year. Anyone have an Amazon Prime account login we can borrow?
