There is a network of organisations across the globe, dedicated to observing the strange and uncanny. We record. We catalogue. We wait. This is a glimpse into the depths of the Magnus Institute and its Sister Locations — a collection of paranormal tales from around the world, documented by Archivists, Librarians, and Researchers. Whether these stories are true, well that’s up to you. For now, we simply hold them For The Record. Semper Vigilans.

For The Record is a derivative, non-canonical, fan-made project derived from The Magnus Archives, an original horror podcast which is created and distributed by Rusty Quill Ltd. For The Record is not endorsed by Rusty Quill Ltd. and is distributed under a creative-commons, attribution, non-commercial, sharealike, 4.0 international license. For more information about the original source material visit www.RustyQuill.com/TheMagnusArchives.

New episodes release on the last Saturday of the month. Listen on our website, via your podcatcher of choice (let us know if we’re not on your favourite one yet!) including Spotify and Apple Podcasts, or via our YouTube channel with closed captions.
