Welcome to the home of Arcane Carolinas AND Arcane Destinations.

The multi-award winning Arcane Carolinas podcast was created in 2020 to explore folklore, legends, and modern weird tales from the mountaintops to sand dunes across the Carolinas' backroads and byroads. From cryptids to cursed earth to people whose passions will surprise you, North and South Carolina are chock full of surprises. Since then, there have been Arcane Carolinas trading cards, a book, and a whole lot of live recordings at fandom conventions.

We might not have all the answers (or any), but we really enjoy exploring the historical context and lore around legends, ghost stories, and modern tales from off the beaten path.

Arcane Carolinas and Arcane Destinations are intended to be an accessible, informative, and fun exploration of these topics and tales.

Do you have a favorite tale, a yarn of your own to spin, or maybe you just want to share something someone told you about the legends, folklore, or mysteries from your hometown? Feel free to drop us a line about coming on the show, or if that's not your speed, you can stay anonymous and we'll share what you sent us.

All episodes can be found in the Arcane Carolinas podcast feed on Spotify, Apple Podcast, Google Play, iHeartRadio or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
