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.
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.
The topics of these episodes are just up my alley. I could listen to this forever. I just found this podcast and seriously can't stop listening
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.
This is a great podcast! It's scary, creepy, informative and relaxing. Yes relaxing.
My son and I literally binge listen to Lore!!! We love it! I let the shows accumulate and we listen to them one after the other! Everything about the show is just pure awesomeness!!!!
My only regret is only being able to give this five stars. Aaron Mahnke is a great storyteller and the music is great too. I can't recommened this podcast enough. Enrich your life and listen!!
Love this podcast! Very well written, and the setting with piano is perfect!
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!
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 the historical storytelling!
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
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.
A podcast that made me go over on my data plan because I just could not get enough of Aaron's storytelling.
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!
Fascinating! I've enjoyed listening to these episodes. Simple, well done, and thought provoking.
A professional and polished podcast of scary stories.
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
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.
Great story telling man! Keep it up! Very professional podcast
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.
Just can't enough! I have listened to everyone of his stories at least five times!!! Very interesting and captivating!
If you like creepy stories that are told around a fireplace, then you'll like this podcast.
By far the best written, produced and entertaining podcast out there.
In love with this podcast!! Great storytelling, beautifully produced. Thank you Aaron
As a trucker I enjoy a new episode after every undate. One of my favorites, and I've listened to alot.
... this podcast pop up with a new episode, I've heard them all, I love them all.
Aaron is so intelligent and does such extensive research on these stories that I feel as though I'm living in them. Amazing stuff. I can't get enough. I could listen all day!
I'm addicted to this podcast! When it comes out I get so excited! I listen to it on headphone while at work. I binged the first 40 episodes and now I can't wait for them to come out! I wish it was more often. Great job Aaron!
Can be a little dark but it's more historical than scary
I started listening awhile back and stopped, I didn't give the podcast enough time to draw me in, then I retried it and I'm so glad I did! I have been binge listening ever since and I am up to date! Craving more! My daughter and I listen and we recently involved my nieces and nephews all who are teenagers and they too have fallen in love with the stories!Keep up the amazing work!!We are proud Patreon Supporters!
This is my jam. Got addicted real quick. The music makes it.
One of my favorite podcasts for some time now. I even revisit some of the creepier episodes to get creeped out all over again. In case I haven't already reviewed this, all the stars for this podcast. Hope Aaron never runs out of stories to share.
This podcast keeps me riveted every episode. Great storytelling and great material. I only wish it lasted longer and came out more often. Two weeks is so long to wait for my favorite podcast. Can't wait for the next episode!
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.
Been listening since the beginning. The music selection is always perfect for the story and the research is great. Check out the patreon page too. Thanks for the hard work!
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.
Wonderfully put together, gripping stories and very addictive! I wish it was a twice a week show!
Weird and creepy podcast. The stories are well researched and fascinating, love it!
Not only start my morning with this amazing podcast but I've started sharing this with my students!!! Dying for the New York show!
Can't say enough positive about this. It's a must listen.
This is one of the best podcasts around, and always a treat to hear!
This podcasts is awesome. I love that it has a horror component to it. Just really well done, a very interesting and fun listen. Well worth your time.
One of my favorite podcasts! Love hearing the new stories.
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.
