I have been wanting to start study the D1 and D2 lore
And I ran into this podcast!! It is so cool!!
Ghost Stories 2; Electric Bugaloo!
All around I think the show is wildly entertaining, informative, and just plain fun. The special guests, chemistry of the hosts, and the well researched/presented information make this one of my favorite podcasts! Excelsior!
This was my initial review. Then they left. Fine, this sort of thing happens. Then they came back. Great, I listened immediatley. On the last posted episode they sais it may (MAY) be two-weeks. That was two and a half months ago. No update. Just silence. Frauds. My review based on their commitment versus their follow through: 2 stars; I don't like it.
wow this is so rad. you guys started this podcast around the time i started playing! 4 years on bungie!! i’m so stoked to listen in on the lore!! THANK YOU!!!
I have been sorely missing this show. Thank you for making it happen again.
So happy to see you all making content again. Really hope you guys keep going, it was sad to see you all fall off and become so disgruntled about the game. But I hope the state of the game now and the huge advancements to lore and story allows you guys to continue to make content. You all got me through many long night shifts and truly got me interested in the lore and hidden story found in the game. Keep it going!
Glad you decided to start this up again. 👍👍
Always true, always entertaining
This podcast is honestly the only one that I’ve ever given a review for, ever. Despite what you have probably undoubtedly already read in previous reviews about the salty ranting of discouraged players who only care about lore, their honesty sets them apart. Listening to them you can hear real emotions, good and bad, and that is what makes the hosts better than those who would say only what they think their listeners want to hear. Always be true and I will always listen.
Scooby makes the show!
I really hope scoobydeezy stays because his knowledge and breakdown of the lore is beyond superb. So glad the podcast is back. Missed you guys!
I listened to this podcast all at once last summer so when I got to what I thought was the final episode I was left a little upset that I couldn’t hear these folks takes on the lore. I’m glad they’re back and I can’t wait to hear more lore for them. Welcome back! From one outlaw to the next, Hunter master race.
Missed listening to you guys.
Totally missed hearing the lore from you guys. Hope to have this more often. Jay- warlock master race lol
Super excited for them to come back

I loved listening to this podcast during destiny 1 and now they’re coming back for destiny 2. Super hyped for all the new episodes
THE best Destiny lorecast, by far
DGS was a fantastic podcast, until D2 started and the salt started raining. All shows of D1 were fantastic, touched on the lore a lot, and were fun to listen to. They even had a few interviews with people like Seth Dickinson, the writer of the Books Of Sorrow. After a year of nothing, DGS has started recording once more. I look forward to seeing what the podcast has to offer in the future.
My Favorite Podcast
So glad you guys are coming back! And I for sure will be checking out this brownie recipe! Can’t wait for the D2 lore, it’s been too long.
I love your podcast and miss you guys!
REALLY GOOD YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO IT PLZ 😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜😜,From creepypasta girl
the old shows maybe, the later shows AVOID
Where did you all go, Destiny 2 lore time yet?
This show WAS great. They ended on whining, yeah we get it, but we don’t come to a lore podcast to her your complaining about state of the game. They came back & sound like they still hate the game, they never really talked about ALL the new lore that has been released.
There are much better places to find lore on this game these days. these guys are washed up, which is sad. State of the game is great right now, we are playing our best Destiny.
Not a Destiny podcast
When they first started the podcast was great. Lots of great Destiny and lore discussions. Then they started becoming very inconsistent with episode postings, then each episode became more about complaining about Destiny than anything positive. Now they rarely post episodes, and when they do it’s just an hour of negative garbage. Some of them don’t even play Destiny anymore, and all they do is complain about the game. They started a Destiny podcast but now insult listeners who speak up or ask why they aren’t covering Destiny. What was once a great source of lore and a bright part of the Destiny community. Has become completely toxic and not worth a Destiny fans time. They are doing themselves a disservice by continuing to put out content and show themselves in such a negative light.
How far you guys have fallen.
Used to be great. I get times have been tough but the podcast has devolved into hours of how butthurt you all are. Sad because this use to be my favorite podcast for Destiny lore.
No Longer For Me
This used to be my go-to Destiny show. The lore was deep, the banter was fun. I was ecstatic to see they returned from a long hiatus, but now I wish my sweet memories weren’t soiled. I understand why they dislike the game now (believe me), but to have some of them say they’ll never play Destiny again, no matter what... why record a show? If you dislike something that much, move on. I am.
Really enjoy this podcast but as a headphone listener , the button smashing of a controller while recording the podcast is very annoying and really ruins the podcast .
We’re dropping Destiny now on this Destiny podcast? And you think you’ll retain even 1% of your Destiny audience that found this podcast searching for Destiny Podcasts? Awesome. Well I enjoyed what you had done prior to giving up on Destiny, good luck with your... whatever podcast... you should probably change the name.
Started strong, but became bitter
Don’t be afraid to listen, I don’t mean too much negativity with the title. They’re a solid listen and really go in-depth with the lore. But... I kind of lost interest due to hosts seeming to become almost bitter, they spent more time picking apart the mistakes than focusing on the lore. I still love them tho, hope that new content will reinvigorate them.
Great for lore
I mainly play RPGs so having this as I start playing destiny 2 is amazing ...
If you love Destiny lore listen to this amazing podcast. It breathes life into the game for me. I just started listening 2 weeks back and as I type this I’m on episode 35.5 and I’m hooked. I’m mostly a solo player so, I listen to this while I play. This podcast also gets me through my work day. I’ve been trying to push this podcast on my clan (Thrall Life Matters). I’m a Titan main #titanmasterrace If any of y’all play on PS4 my PSN is Spanishhbac. Keep up the good work! Can’t wait to get caught up!
On a scale of 1-10 with 6 being the highest I rate this Turtle.(P.S. I play on Xbox username Loyalgamer05)
Hours of Entertaining Destiny Lore
Hey guys! I recently found your podcast shortly after the release of Destiny 2 and have learned so much about Destiny 1 that I never knew about. I’ve always wanted to learn more about it on my own, but failed to connect pieces of it. Thank you for expanding my knowledge of the Destiny world. (P.S. I play both Destinys on Xbox and would love to play with you!)
You guys did a great job for D1 but it looks like you're not interested anymore. Just a bunch of inside conversation about other things. See ya'
When it’s on it’s on. But when it’s off it’s off
This show is by far one of the best places to listen to destiny lore out there! They go in depth and really make the story come alive... at least when it’s about the lore.
I love hearing about their lives and following them on side quests but it seems like the show has become less and less which is a little disappointing. I rated it a 3 Star but the majority of this podcast is fire and worthy of 5 stars. I’m hoping In the future I’ll change it to five and can update this review.
Like the Last City, this has podcast has fallen
These guys are a veritable wealth of information, as a guardian who cut his chops on vanilla destiny 1, these guys helped me understand and appreciate the depth of the Destiny story. Their bits on the Vault of Glass and the Books of Sorrow were mind bending to say the least. It was a great resource until the episodes became scant and destiny 2 dropped.
I still listen whenever they put out an episode, and as a busy guy myself I get the whole scheduling nightmare that comes with doing anything in a group, but their latest episodes seem to be more of a salt-cast than a podcast. They seem like all they want to do is harp on Destiny 2’s shortcomings. As someone who loved learning the lore behind the weapons and classes, I too am disappointed that there appears to be very little of note here in year one, like three months after release, but I don’t let it ruin my fun. They say over and over they like Destiny 2, but they spend 2/3s if their latest podcast ripping it a new one and the one third that is supposed to be complimentary is mostly a gripe list.
While addressing shortcomings is important, Ghost Stories should focus on being a lore podcast, not a nerd rage podcast. The last few episodes sound like the comic book guy from the Simpsons infected them with his Cheeto dust. There is lore to talk about, even if it’s not up to Dropslash’s caliber, even if the lore is lacking, take what you have and talk about it. If you don’t want to talk destiny 2, talk destiny 1, but don’t just pine and moan that the game is not the way you want it to be.
Perfect for new fans of Destiny!
Just started with Destiny 2 and wanted to catch up on the lore. Very entertaining and informative and I’ll definitely be binging on this podcast for a while. Hope it won’t be ending anytime soon.
Good at times, meh at others
Loved all of the deep dives and lore discussions, but as D2 launches it’s been nothing but constant complaining. Why not focus on the things in the game that has the lore. Instead of point out all of the flaws all the old players know about
No longer about the lore
I really enjoyed this podcast during Destiny. Learning about the esoteric details of the Vex or discussing the intricacies of sword logic was pretty amazing. However, this podcast is no longer about the lore. Instead, it should be titled “Stuff dropslash doesn’t like about Destiny”. Gone are the tangled stories of Osiris and Toland. Instead, we get a litany of complaints and salt, a dead horse that’s already been beaten across the internet and back. If you’re looking for a deep dive into the backstory and world-creation in the Destiny universe, this is no longer the place.

On a serious note, I love this podcast. I don’t usually listen to podcast, but this one is absolutely great. Listening to the exotic heavy weapon episode now and I have to say that X-ray is my spirit animal after you did that metal intro. My gamer tag is Pheline Feonix, and I would love to play with you guys!!
Ps. If X-ray reads this on an episode he has to read all the “thank you” written above! 😂
Very accurate and funny!
Nice job! Very informative and fun to listen to while I'm playing Destiny 2 or D1. Something you all could improve on is staying on task, like making episodes more often, using more referencing to more Destiny things, or maybe even extending your episodes and making them more detailed. Very good coverage!
This is AMAZING
Love this show so much, I have listened to some episodes at least 5 or 6 times over. Hosts are great, just a great podcast to listen to.
This is the Destiny Podcast for you
I have been an avid listener since, Dec 2015. You guys Rock, love learning the all the vast (science/ phyics/ universe / planetary) details behind the game we all play. Thanks for taking the time to inform all of us and keep us up to date on all things lore related to Destiny!
Go deeper into the lore of Destiny with this amazing group of individuals. Very concise and thorough from Raids to Loot, everything you wanna hear about all hidden lore is discussed.
Great Destiny Lore Podcast
A great show with plenty of humor. This show digs deeper into the lore and explains it better than anything out there. Another positive note is 99% of all episodes are little ear friendly so I have no issue letting my Little Light listen along.
Great show, poor schedule
I love the quality and content that this show provides but they are a weekly podcast that recently has become a monthly update on their lives. Not that I don't care about the lives of the cast but I listen because of the destiny lore. They are incredibly knowledgeable on the topic but it is hard to write a five star review when they haven't published a lore episode in over 2 months. If they could get on a consistent schedule I would gladly rewrite this review but until then I can't give them the 5 stars the show deserves.
I found this podcast at episode 12 and and literally binge listened to all the previous episodes because this podcast is great. The hosts do so much work researching and putting together notes and it shows. My only complaint about the show is I wish there was just more of it. I could listen to the show everyday. Keep up the good work guys and can't wait to see what you guys do for destiny 2.
I just found this podcast and I'm hooked.
I am a start up streamer and i want say you guys are my heros you start with very little and now are epically big i hope i can one day grow like you and help ppl see the joy i get from a game like you guys
Just started listening last week. I'm going in order. On episode 10. Hopefully I can catch up and hear them all by destiny 2. Most interesting of all the podcasts imo.
Great podcast, AMAZING LORE
Great Lore Podcast
Top-notch, I really enjoy this podcast. I'm a yr. 1 Destiny player, and I really appreciate all the time and effort you guys have put into this podcast. Yet another example of how awesome this community really is.
Won't find this anywhere else !
Detailed , broke down , and explained Destiny lore !
I have listened to ep.1 to ep.51 in a month, usually 4 to 6 hours a day Monday through Friday.
I Flip and Restore houses , I love my job but this podcast has made me love it even more ! A lot of times I'm alone, doing what I do, just thinking about Destiny and what I want to knock out when I get home, and how fast I can get there ! The last month though it was a little different I stayed till the Ep. that I was listening to would end (which was usually an extra hour or so) before I would start to clean up and head out , all the sudden I found I was accomplishing so much more with out realizing it, stairs would get built, stain would go on, and railings would go up , homes would improve, and all the while I was roaming the Cosmodrome where it all started , then all the way to the Lords of Iron where we sit now !
This podcast is a top contender !
Give it a shot I know it won't disappoint!
Awesome podcast! However, I really enjoyed dropslash's destiny 2 review for the premiere. He must have a photographic memory, the details of the game he was able to recall was amazing. Kudos for reviving Zavala!
Fantastic Job Guardians!
As a fellow podcaster, I am so impressed by the amount of work and effort that goes into each show. Been listening since the beginning and am looking forward to hearing and seeing you guys in Destiny 2! Love you guys! RogueSpartan4, out.
I now have a void in my life
A few months ago I wanted to learn more about the lore behind destiny, after some googling and redditing I found your podcast. Over the course of 3 months I would listen to you guys talk about the lore of destiny. I would talk to you on my commute to work and tell you how right you are with your theories about upcoming content, since at the time of recording you were unaware. As I write this I am completely caught up with the podcast. It's a bitter sweet feeling to know I'm caught and to not be able to binge. I've learned so much and even schooled some of my clan members on the lore thanks to you. This is hands down the best destiny lore podcast I've heard, your passion for the game and it's lore comes across. Keep up the fantastic work looking forward to the next episode.
