Digital voice

Rating: ★★☆☆☆

Stop with the text-to-speech, just please go back to reading your prepared podcast. That mechanical voice doesn't make the podcast creepier, just boring. Which is a shame because the content is good.

Love This!

I'm so happy I found this podcast! It is so enjoyable and put together so well. The stories are informative without being repetitive or over the top. I have a long ride to work so I wish each one were longer, but overall the podcast is fantastic.

Weaves together stories of the mysterious. The style is unlike anything on the podwaves. A very cool, fun listen, especially if you're a fan of campfire stories.

I can't say how much I love this podcast

As an artist who listens constantly to dialog while working I appreciate great storytelling that is based on research and facts. This is the perfect podcast. There is history as well as lore. It is intriguing from the first musical note to the last word. So so good. I only wish each episode was longer!

A personal favorite

The somber tone and the topics are relaxing and highly entertaining. Definitely one of my favorite podcasts. I've listened to all of them at least three times.My only issue is that new releases every two weeks is far too long!

Love this podcast!

Lore has absolutely earned its popularity. I've been listening to it since last year and the quality has always been high. It's atmospheric, well-researched, and always fascinating!

His voice is very monotonous with a Nicolas Cage variation causing me lose attention. I gave up on his stories.

The content is thorough and well-researched and the storytelling is well-paced and engrossing. Every episode is a treat, and I look forward to listening to them all. :)

The description is dead on: sometimes the truth is scarier than anything we could create in our heads. Currently 5 episodes in. Started one a day, but have gotten addicted and listen to three already! Using the Overcast app instead of through the iPhone podcast app

Robotic Voice

The voice is robotic voice is extremely annoying, the content is very interesting but I couldn't get past the annoying pausing and phrasing.

Riveting and fascinating podcast. The interesting subject matter is made even more easily digestible and binge-worthy with lush soundscapes, fantastic production, evocative writing, and understated performance. Do yourself a favor and subscribe.

I absolutely love this podcast. Aaron's story telling pulls you in and I love his bits of added humor. So glad I found it. It's a must add to your subscriptions.

One of the podcasts most deserving of 5 stars

A podcast that made me go over on my data plan because I just could not get enough of Aaron's storytelling.

Perfectly paced & composed

by Conjure&Create on Feb 20, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Not only is Mr. Mahnke a nice person (I saw him perform some episodes live in Boston) but his narration evokes a familiarity and ease of conversation to the listener. He presents facts and states clearly when there aren't any solid findings in a way that states, "decide for yourself". The music he chooses provides enough atmosphere without getting in the way, adding a suggested mood, not an overbearing presence. Highly recommend this podcast!

A professional and polished podcast of scary stories.

A creepy sort of relaxed

by Wrobl1bn on Feb 20, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

I like listening to podcasts while I work so I'm constantly on the lookout for new things to entertain myself over 8-12 hour shifts (which is no easy task sometimes). That said I've recently stumbled upon "Lore" and I've absolutely loved it. The stories are artfully recounted and the haunting, yet charmingly calm music that plays in the background sets the tone for what are often tales that leave me afraid even in a brightly lit room surrounded by people. I've already recommended this to several coworkers and will continue to in the future. I'll be sad when I catch up to current episodes but I'll also be eagerly awaiting updates! tl;dr: 10/10 would recommend

Great and creepy consistently

Most of the bad review say they don't like Aaron's voice?!?! That's the best part, especially when trying to unwind. I love his voice - it's very clear and relaxing, and the subject matter is usually really cool. The best episodes are ones that focus on one story or character. I want more like the bloody pit, the footprints in the snow, and the mothman. Sometimes episodes are a bit disjointed due to too many subjects, like the New Orleans episode, but these are generally outweighed by the good ones.

If you love the unexplained, supernatural, or just plain weird, this is the perfect podcast for you. It doesn't hurt if you also love history! Plus, Aaron's voice is quite pleasant to listen to.

Aaron Mahnke's level of research and thoroughness is impressive, not to mention his storytelling abilities. I have loved LORE since the beginning and I haven't been disappointed yet. Soundtrack is always gorgeous and eerie. Kudos to great and smart entertainment. 12/10 would recommend.

This podcast is one of my favorites of all time. The host Aaron Mahnke does a beautiful job telling these interesting stories of folklore. Some stories you may have heard, but I was shocked at how many I wasn't aware of. Lore's production quality is also gorgeous. I highly recommend all to give it a listen. I also can't wait for the new show. Fantastic job Aaron and thank you for your hard work.

Love it.

Lore was the first podcast I ever listened to -- seriously. I rented a car and the radio didn't work well, so I needed hours of entertainment while I drove solo for a few days. I stumbled on Lore and never looked back. The stories are compelling and well written; they are creepy, without being gory or too disturbing. The 30 minute episodes are just the right length. I also prefer the stand-alone format. I can listen to one episode without needing others. All in all, a fantastic podcast.
