What is the line between "myth" and "folklore?" How do urban legends fit in? In a thousand years, will Slenderman be considered folklore, myth, or what? How to phenomena like Randonauts, Backrooms, and the Mandela Effect work in to everything? What happens when everyone has a video camera in their back pocket, multiple ways to instantly share what they encounter, and how might this challenge our ideas of what is real or not?Seth gives the deets on The Loch Ness Monster, Erica discusses the weird and scary reality behind the Wendigo. Girl teaches everyone about the effect of the internet on contemporary lore, and as usual, Christine has thoughts on just about everything.Be sure to check out our Intagram feeds (@sundayschooldelinquents and @Loreschoolpodcast), and tell us your favorite stories, myths, lore, and urban legends!
