“Folxlore is an energizing listen that draws you in with its dreamy, poetic feel and mysterious sonic settings.”
- The Atlantic “The 50 Best Podcast of 2020”
Folxlore is a series of queer horror stories written as a hybrid of spoken word and audio fiction.
Each episode intertwines the tales of queer inhabitants of the city as their lives oscillate between the mundane and supernatural.
Folxlore asks the question: If paranoia is common sense, how can you tell if you're being unreasonable?
Folxlore first came out in February 2020 with three pilot episodes. The resounding success of the pilots lead to the creation of season one, which debuted March 7th 2021.

-Bello Collective, "100 Outstanding Podcasts From 2020"
From March 7 to May 2nd, you can follow along with weekly episodes by subscribing to Folxlore on your podcatcher of choice!
This is fresh feeling audio, strange and twisted in the right ways that don't leave queer folks out in the cold and instead speak, quietly and firmly, to the anxieties and fears that we have buried in order to survive."
-Elena Fernández Collins, Audio Dramatic #49
