Aaron Mahnke, the creator of the beloved horror podcast Lore, acts as the perfect stand-in for scary stories around a campfire. He spins the most haunting “true” stories of ghosts available over digital audio, but don't fret: you'll still be able to sleep with the lights off. Savvy listeners note that Mahnke, a supernatural thriller writer, has modernized the form by upgrading and vetting the manner in which he delivers hearsay, rumor, and gossip, all regular features of ghost stories. Mahnke collates sources, scours historical archives, and raises a red flag when he finds a suspicious detail. “Bite Marks" conjures images that, despite coming through a non-visual form, you can never unsee. In the episode, a homeless man falls into a mass grave filled with decomposing bodies in a cemetery in Scotland, stirring the souls of the people buried within. Not one, not two, but hundreds of people have reported physical attacks at the site of the grave, people who couldn’t know about the attacks that came before their own. What’s worse, the invisible antagonist(s) of “Bite Marks” does not come to us from some distant past -- the stories surrounding this horror date back to the quite recent 1999. Download a bunch in response to your next adult slumber-party invite and leave your flashlight at home.
