Lore drinking game: take a drink every time Aaron Mahnke says "after all" or "you see". Jokes aside, this podcast is excellent and I eagerly await each new episode. Mahnke's unique cadence and delivery give the show a special flavor, and the background music is always fantastically creepy. Lore is well researched and well written, and one of my favorite podcasts.

Glad I found this one!

I’m a big consumer of podcasts and audio books. This podcast is beautifully done. It’s a truly a creepy joy to listen to. I look forward to new episodes of Lore above all others!

Podcast is 15-20 mins of mediocre story telling and 5-10 mins of shameless self promotion and commercials.

This podcast is well organized and super eerie. I love a good scary podcast, but this one's next level, packed with real historic events and great content.

i have seen the advertisments on the subways and on buses, in New York, and I wondered what it was about when I found out it was a podcast i began listening to them. Its creepy, fun, and make sure you have google up...to do a little online searching yourself, just saying

Amazing information provided in the podcast, covers things I'm already interested in and actually has taught me new things. Best part is he is also a Mass resident :) keep it up Aaron.

It only took a few episodes before I was listening to Lore when cooking, cleaning, working out, etc. It’s a catch! Wildly entertaining with a high dose of factual history and information. The TV show is great too if you get the chance to watch it!

Aaron kills it. His fantastic narration makes the storie's captivating. Highly recommend this podcast if you enjoy the allure of mysteries and folk'lore'.

I listened to ten episodes just this afternoon while I was organizing my house. Aaron's definitely done his homework finding all of these stories and fashioning them into great little nuggets of stories: eerie, macabre, and interesting. Highly recommend.

Keeps me coming back for more.

Unexplainably Amazing

Lore is an incredible podcast. It focuses less on what we fear, but on why we fear it. It doesn’t keep me on edge, which isn’t the point of the podcast. It brings to light the folk lore that made its way to pop culture, and the forgotten folklore. It’s beautiful how he speaks and how he tells the stories of others. It’s a good podcast to put every ounce of your concentration in, or have it on in the background during your math homework. The music adds an Erie feeling but not suspenseful like cheesy horror movies. The audio is incredible and the production quality is amazing. I’ve already picked up a book of his and it’s a page turner. It’s an incredible podcast. I’d recommend it to everyone

Absolutely addicting!

I found this podcast after I got caught up with another podcast and needed something else to listen to. I was not at all disappointed! Lore is simple but informative and very well put together. There has not been an episode yet that I haven’t purely enjoyed. I am 100% hooked and if you are looking for a good podcast, check out Lore because I guarantee you will be hooked as well.

Great stories, horrible narration.

by Buddy stalker on Oct 22, 2017
Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

I really want to like Lore. The stories are great, the flow is great, the audio tracks are well done... but I wish the narrator would work on his delivery I little bit more. He has a way of reading that comes across as robotic. He sounds as if he were adding punctuation mid sentence or reading from a script never seen before. Just give it a listen and you’ll see what I mean.

One day while witting monsters ...

by Just A F((&# on Oct 22, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

One day while writing monsters in a new book, my girlfriend suggested Lore. I haven’t finished the podcast and fear I’ll soon be done with the available episodes. It tracks well after my Stephen Asma reading On Monsters as an encyclopedic review of what they forgot to tell you, of what you stumbled upon, of what and how fear appears. Soon I’ll be re-listening wondering if my classic back story and new monster features innovate. Cheers dude, great stuff - Lore has my full recommendation, and AM my full thanks as a writer.

So good

I love your show! Gives me the creeps! I’m sure you aren’t looking for ideas, but I would love to hear about The Roanoke colony or the Bermuda Triangle. Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer are also fascinating! Anyway, keep up the great content. Happy Haunting!

Lore is great. Beautifully creepy tails told in a great voice with dark piano underscoring. I wish more people were making content like this. I even got to meet these folks when they did a live performance at The Palace if Fine Arts in San Francisco. I actually was working at this event and Aaron and Chad were an absolute pleasure to work with.

Addictive and hypnotic

by Essievee80 on Oct 21, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

This podcast is not at all what I was expecting. It’s so much more. It’s thought-provoking, historically educational (in a completely fun way), and gives my horror-loving brain new fodder for its musings. If I could give it 6 stars, I would in a heartbeat.

I’ve been hooked on this show since day 1 of its premiere as a podcast. The creativity, detail, and craftsmanship that is put into every little bit of the episode is superb. Lore raises the bar for podcasts with both its content and production. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen, you won’t regret it!

Spooky and Mesmerizing!

Is this a computer voice?

by Sarcart on Oct 20, 2017

I might enjoy it better if the mans voice didnt sound so computer-like. I cant follow it. And all it is is one man reading some scary story or info with music in the background. 😴

I listen to a lot of podcasts, an embarrassing amount of podcasts, but Lore is always going to be my favorite. I'm a sucker for folklore and spooky stories, and this podcast delivers in spades. Mahnke's narration is perfect, the music is stellar, and the stories he tells are always fascinating and haunting. It brightens up my Mondays when there's a new episode. I definitely recommend giving this one a shot if you're a fan of the creepy, of history, or good stories.

Horrible narration

by Pandoranow88 on Oct 19, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

The narrator sounds like Lori from Silicon Valley. That’s not a compliment at all. Fun content but I can’t get past the way he speaks or maybe it sounds like he’s reading from a flip cards or something.

A descent into ancient, sacred story

by JonathanJSample on Oct 19, 2017
Rating: ★★★★★

Aaron Mahnke is on a mission, I think. He wants to put story back into the everyday lives of people. This podcast is his vehicle, and he employs it to outstanding effect.Lore is such a wonderful listen because it speaks to something common and ancient within all of us, something which has been a part of humanity since the earliest days of our species. It tells us a story. It uses familiar themes and comfortable delivery to awaken a segment of our minds and send us on a journey. This podcast, at its qualitatively lowest point, is a delightful trip somewhere else. At its peak, it can transform you. Give it a listen. Indulge in story. Our story. Tap into shared humanity.Oh, and be prepared to feel unsettled at times, too. Sometimes stories can do that.

What can I say that hasn't already been said by previous reviewers about this amazing podcast? It's fantastic! I love the fact that 90% of the time, I've never heard the stories being told, and it keeps me on the edge of my seat until the very end. If you like history, folklore, the paranormal, mysteries, or even just entertaining stories, you'll love this podcast. Do yourself a favor, and hit the subscribe button. You will not regret it.

No doubt one of my favorite podcasts ever. It's addicting, informative, and entertaining. Lore is like a history lesson mixed with spooky stories. The music choices for the background are all gorgeous and fitting. Aaron is an amazing host. I enjoy listening while I work, or while dog walking. I highly recommend.

Sorry, but it's a let down.

by EvieFaith24 on Oct 18, 2017
Rating: ★★☆☆☆

While the stories themselves are interesting and a fun bit of history, the storytelling isn't catching. To be honest, I quite dislike the narration style. I wanted to love this podcast, but I don't.

My go-to for spooky history

I've been listening to Lore for a long time now... it was my go-to train ride podcast & now it accompanies me on my drive to & from work. It's a great combination of ghost story & history lesson, and I live that you can sense the time Aaron puts into each episode. (Thanks, Aaron! Just got your latest book and can't wait to hunker down with it this week! Keep doing what you're doing!)

Late to the show!
