This week, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Heather Moser. Heather is a writer, a classics professor, a top tier researcher for Small Town Monsters, and the host of The Lore You Know podcast. As a fan of basically everything that she does, this was a big get for me, but at the end of the day she’s just a brilliant and charming person with some very important insights about best practices for Fortean research. We discuss her academic background and they influence of that on her current work, incidences of moral panic throughout history, and the state of Fortean investigation and research today! Also…it was just awesome to find someone willing to nerd out about the joys of research with me for a half hour. Enjoy.
Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only. The content and discussion in this show will necessarily engage with various accounts that include violence, anxiety, fear, and occasional body horror.
