The Strange Disappearance of David Lang and Ambrose Bierce
Show Notes

Folklore is usually a culmination of truth and fiction. It’s a sort of flavoring for a specific region—a mash of traditions, beliefs, and stories that are passed from one generation to the next. It can be difficult to pick apart because, with every new storyteller, there’s a new spin on the original. Multiply that by a hundred years or more, and what you get may scarcely resemble the seed of truth buried inside. 

Lore is obscure, its murky waters are fascinating to gaze upon… but is it safe to jump in? Perhaps a dive into the swampy waters is exactly what’s necessary to decipher the strange disappearance of David Lang, a man who vanished into thin air in Gallatin, Tennessee on September 23rd, 1880, and his bizarre connection to the disappearance of author Ambrose Bierce.
