Aaron Mahnke, the creator of the podcast Lore released a new spinoff, Unobscured, in early October 2018. Unlike Lore, which explores eerie tales every episode, Unobscured delves into a historic event as a theme for its entire season. The first season of Unobscured is about the 1692 Salem witch trials, and Mahnke includes interviews with researchers and historians in his narrative. In the first episode, listeners learn about the origin of Salem Town and Salem Village, and how the tension between the two communities becomes the "dry kindling [in which] the match is about the be struck." Unobscured's haunting soundtrack is composed by Chad Lawson, with lead research being performed by Carl Nellis, and Matt Frederick and Alex Williams serving as producers and engineers. A list of sources for each show is listed on Unobscured's website, along with short bios of each interviewed historian. Interested visitors can listen to Unobscured via the main site or on various podcast platforms, such as Apple Podcasts and Stitcher. Unobscured is slated to release new episodes throughout autumn 2018, so stay tuned.
