True Tales to Tell in the Dark #1: The Great Famine of 1315

Dark Softly Tales

Mar 23 2020 • 20 mins

Welcome to our first episode of True Tales to Tell in the Dark! Since we are still waiting on the stories to roll in from our listeners, I’m using this time to dive into true scary tales from history! This month we explore the great famine of 1315, the inspiration for a few fairy tales we will be covering over the next few weeks.

I couldn’t find the links to all the articles I read, but here are good handful:

We want your true stories for our True Tales to Tell in the Dark portion of the podcast that will begin in March. What kind of true stories? Anything creepy, dark, haunting… write about the haunted house you used to live in, your UFO sighting, your creepy doll, or experience with a clown. Tell me how you were almost abducted on the side of a lonely highway when your car broke down, or tell me about the strange sound a beast made out in the woods that you couldn’t tell if was human or something else… just make sure it is true! Please send your true story within the body of the email to darksoftlytales@gmail.com with TRUE TALE in the subject line. Please give me your first name and the state you live in (if in US) or country you live in if outside the US—or remain completely anonymous. It's up to you. If you’d like more details go to HERE.
