My favorite Podcast EVER!

Aaron does an unbelievable job doing research and telling lore. I have to admit, I was a bit wary at the begining, but after listening to the first podcast, I completely fell in love. His story telling, the way he describes the events that are happenening, and the truth embedded in the story makes me feel like I'm taking a trip right into the mysteries. If you're looking for shorter podcasts, Aaron makes another one called, Cabinets of Curiosities. They are equally amazing, giving you snipets of small stories. Lastly, he makes one more podcast called Unobscured. This podcast has a new story every season. He just finished season 1, which was about the Salem Witch Trials. His in depth studies there were amazing. Lore, though, is my favorite by far. :)

I used to love this podcast, but I had to unsubscribe. Unfortunately, due to the popularity, he spends the first ten minutes shilling himself and other products. I get it, you’re making money that way, but it’s awful to listen to. Story content started getting thin and overly drawn out after about 75 episodes.

Simply a fantastic listen

This is by far my favorite podcast. Aaron Mahnke is a wonderful story teller, weaving mystery and wonder from real stories. I'm always amazed by the level of detail without any loss in the quality of the story. I've gotten my wife, my sister and many friends hooked on this podcast and all of them have ravenously listened to every episode.

The best start for podcast delight. Consistent high quality. Originality in storytelling.

Aaron’s voice cadence is a hard pass

The stories would probably be interesting, if he didn’t stop in odd spots. Ruins the entire episode. Wha wha

Still going downhill

I used to really enjoy this show. Wish Aaron would get back to his roots. Latley he has been redundant and oh so boring. The Jan 8th episode was my final straw... if you read this Mr. Mahnke please stop listening to all the sycophants on twitter who enrich your ego. This show has gotten bad.

Lore is epic

by Mctxmc88 on Jan 07, 2019
Rating: ★★★★★

People always judge lore because of the speakers “voice cadence.” But his presenting style is awesome! This show deals only with the facts! Keep up the great work! I honestly never listen to podcasts. But my mom told me about Lore, I expected it too be cheesy, and just plain awful. But I listened to the first episode, and immediately got hooked!

Love this podcast it’s very interesting ! There’s an interesting story I think would be a good topic for an episode! It’s about one of the molly maguires that we’re hung to death in a Jim Thorpe PA jail, and innocence and a hand print that won’t go away so if you need an idea you should look into it! Awesome

I could listen to Aaron tell stories for days on end. He has an wonderful way with words, and his research is impeccable. If you want creepy and beautiful, Lore is the podcast for you!

Lore is really awesome! I listen to Lore almost every day. If you love hearing well told stories I highly recommend listening to Aaron Mahkney! (You may want to avoid listening before bed though)

I love listening to the mysterious and sometime creepy stories, told by a lovely voiced Aaron Mahnke. You never know what you'll learn

Scary and relaxing at the same time!

This is a podcast that my entire family enjoys. I have two teenagers, and we all love to listen together on car trips. My only complaint is how relaxing Aaron's voice is...sometimes I have to rewind because he has lulled me into a daydream : )

Great content but too many ads

by C.L.Niclas on Dec 30, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Way too much time is spend on ads - too many ads per episode, and then too much time spent on each of those ads. Good stories though!

Great stories

As a writer, this podcaster is great. The stories are engaging and wonderful. That being said, a professional speaker would greatly benefit this podcast. He talks like a robot and it is hard to handle.

This is my favorite podcast. And I loved season 1 of the show on amazon. What happened with season 2? It was like a completely different show. I don’t want to show to go away I just want season 3 to have the same style as season 1. I’m so sad about that. But the podcast has consistently stayed amazing!!!!!

There’s nothing I don’t like about this podcast. I binge listened to it from central Louisiana to Atlanta and from Atlanta to western Nebraska. That’s a lot of hours and I didn’t get tired of it. It is uncommon narrative and ethereal music. Great job, Aaron.

Unlike Lore I won’t waste your time here. Bottom line it’s boring. His lifeless voice and anticlimactic stories are hard to sit through.

This is the first podcast I ever listened to, and it really opened the door to the podcast world for me. I whole-heartedly love Lore, and I regularly encourage my friends to listen with me. It’s creepy, well-researched, thought provoking, and dramatic. All in all, superb.

Love it

Great storytelling and love the classical music. His voice is robotic but makes the story even more creepy. Sometimes, the scariest part of the story is when he introduces himself.

Aaron, I love your podcasts and I’ve subscribed to all of them. Just wanted to note that my 3yo & 7yo always want to know if you’re talking about something sad...they seem to think you sound a bit melancholy lol

What’s with this guy’s speech??

by SFladylistener on Dec 20, 2018
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

The stories are semi-interesting, but the host has the weirdest way of speaking! The intonation and cadence are bizarre. I think there’s a real chance he’s actually AI. Seriously, Alexa and Siri sound more human. I listened to a couple of episodes and just couldn’t take it.

Great podcast!

This podcast NEVER disappoints. I listen as often as I can while I’m at work, at a Coroner’s Office nonetheless, and it has the perfect mix of mystery and darkness. I recommend this podcast to everyone!

Ahem 1 stars

by jack1637 on Dec 18, 2018
Rating: ★★★★★

If you don’t like the speed he talks you can always change this in the control panel when you tap/click the episode so think before you prevent other people from seeing this podcast because too many people voted 1 star and the podcast is all of a sudden a 1 star podcast

Too much nonsense as fact.

by Xtineogle on Dec 18, 2018
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Super interesting and well-produced podcast. I knocked it down two stars because it gives credence that ghosts/spirits/hauntings are real, which is nonsense.

I found Lore on Amazon Prime, watched season one and loved it, didn’t care for season 2, so I started listening to the podcast.Aaron Mahnke, has a way of delivering stories that make you feel like you’re sitting around a camp fire.Love it, keep it coming.
