The world is more mysterious than most people are comfortable imagining. We cross paths with the mystical from time to time and may not even notice it. If we do, we quickly return to our usually mundane daily existence. But what if we not only acknowledged the unknown, we investigated it and spoke with those in the know? That’s what co-hosts Scott & Forrest, and their producer Tess Pfeifle do at Astonishing Legends. With the power of the well-vetted Astonishing Research Corps, they have acce ...

A trilogy of bone-chilling subterranean tales are unearthed by James, in Part 1 of our 100th episode “spectacular.” Marvel, as the Loremen encounter a mummy’s curse, get lost in the Kennington Loop and come face-to-face with an Absolute Bad Boy. We also learn the French term for earthquake and answer the age-old riddle: when is a wig, not a wig? An…
 
Now that we've covered the story essentials of the strange case of Mary Lurancy Vennum, known as "The Watseka Wonder," it's time to take a look at the possible causes and mechanics of this apparent miracle. Suppose Lurancy's possession was merely the imaginative prank of an attention-seeking impressionable teenager. How then did she know intimate, …

From the depths of Wales's Brecon Beacons, at the Green Man Festival, two plucky Loreboys attempted a pod-first: recording a podcast in a tent. Sadly, it proved to be too rainy and of that recording, only fragments remain… Join Alasdair and James for exclusive access to the so-called 'Green Man Tapes,' as well as the 14th Century tale of a true-hea…
 
We often wonder when was the first time a now well-known phenomenon first occurred or was recorded. In the instance of spiritual possession, at least in the United States, we may have an answer in the case known as “The Watseka Wonder.” Indeed, if such a condition exists, it’s likely people have been claiming or appearing to be possessed by a super…
 
James returns from a minibreak in Cornwall with a swashbuckling tale of piracy, mistaken identity and being very annoying. Don't worry - all those things apply to the protagonist of the Penryn Tragedy, not James. Prepare yourself for a deadly case of banter-gone-wrong in this Cornish bloodbath. So gather your booty, moisten your Pogs, and join the …

One question we often receive is, do we think the US Government will ever disclose the existence of UFOs? We believe the answer is, they've already begun. Since the groundbreaking, front-page article appeared in the December 17, 2017 edition of the New York Times with a title exclaiming "Real UFOs," the world has seen drips and drops of Pentagon-au…

You know the feeling. It's night-time and you're all alone. You get the strangest feeling that if you look into the glass of a darkened window, you might see a scary figure looking back at you? Well, the tale that Alasdair Beckett-King chills James Shakeshaft with in this episode is ever so similar. Except it's daytime, you're in church with other …
 
Here's a question: What makes a haunted house spooky if you've never been there? How scary can a haunted house be if no one has repeatedly investigated it? In other words, what is more frightening, the honest anecdotes about experienced paranormal activity in a haunted location or the unverified legends and lore of a place that send the frights of …

It's much more comfortable for most of us to think of paranormal subjects as having their origins beginning only in recent history – an amusing byproduct of mid-twentieth century foolishness or the internet age. Much easier to dismiss then. Many people, persuaded by an uninformed media, believe UFOs only started appearing to the public after pilot …

Our goal in covering the story of the Perron family's experience while living for a decade at the Arnold Estate, the inspiration for the motion picture, The Conjuring, was to uncover the real story behind the persistent hauntings. What we discovered once again was the actual truths at the heart of this, and other famous cases are as murky and nebul…

Alasdair takes us to the flat, flat Fenlands and tells tales of some proper old-school oddballs. The sort of people who like to question the mainstream narrative. The sort of people who, if they were around nowadays, would probably wear a mask but not over their nose. You know the sort. BONUS: This episode also includes a cut-out-and-keep haircut f…

James takes Alasdair on a guided tour of the Cotswolds’ less famous standing stones. This episode is hot, hot, hot, in many senses of the word. Is it the sultry ambience of a summer evening in James’s shed? Is it the phallic power of these B-list monoliths? Or is it... Swede dreams? Hopefully, we will never find out. Loreboys nether say die! Suppor…
 
Whether you're a fan of horror films or not, you've probably heard of the 2013 motion picture, "The Conjuring." This film, starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, struck such a chord with viewers that it spawned a franchise of related films like The Conjuring sequels, The Nun, Annabelle, and The Curse of La Llorona. But the initial movie was insp…
