Award-winning podcaster Aaron Mahnke narrates his own collection of stories that explore the darkest corners of our history. He delves into the truths and folklore surrounding a miscellany of depravity, including the acts of infamous serial killers and swindlers to the hysteria, hypocrisy, and violence of witch hunts. Though this audiobook is not for the squeamish, Mahnke's fact-based approach should be digestible enough for a general audience. He taps into the core themes of these stories but never revels in the grisly details. Discerning listeners can even find some important lessons about the unsavory side of the human condition. Altogether, Mahnke strikes a perfectly calibrated tone. He's a well-informed historian but also has the energy of a master storyteller spinning a yarn on a dark night.
