Travel across India through its and dark stories!

‘Rumors’ shines a light on the darkest corners of South Asia, where fact and fiction combine into magical and haunting stories. A soldier who still guards the borders decades after his death; an entire village dedicated to black magic; snakes that magically turn into people, and people who have been turned into Gods. This podcast brings to light stories of real people, places and creatures which are lost or warped over time. How did these stories come about? Why are they still around? How do they shape our culture and our sense of reality? Let’s uncover the story… behind the story! Who knows what waits in the dark.
