    One of the best podcasts out there.
    Integrity. That’s the word that continues to come to mind when I think about Lore and all the other work Aaron Mahnke and the incredible team at Grim and Mild does in the world. Lore isn’t just a great podcast with great storytelling. It provides the humble, clear eyed, and honest picture of history, religion, and culture that the world needs far more of than it does today. As I listen, I often catch myself thinking “if we all just collectively took this curious and honest approach to history, we would be able to approach the issues we have today with far more intentionality and understanding.” That’s why I think integrity is the best way to describe this podcast. Integrity is how it is made in every detail and if we are really listening, integrity is what it helps us to strive for in our view of history and each other. Because of all this, it really is one of the best podcasts out there.

    Good but
    They have very loud / jarring noises starting each episode and really ruin the show especially if I am listening as I try to fall asleep.

    Deeper Lore
    Love the show. Always have. I wanted to write this review to express my gratitude for your hard work. I appreciate the addition of Deeper Lore. It’s a way to keep the show running for the whole week. Even though I’ve heard many of the episodes before, it’s neat to listen with a new perspective. It’s a good way to make use of your catalog. I wish that you’d give more exact information in the episodes’ descriptions. Like, in the trains episode, the ep info doesn’t even mention what the show is about. Thanks too for the limited commercial breaks. Great show! Keep up the good work Aaron!

    Amazing
    I’ve been listening to Lore ever since the tv show came out and I'm addicted and obsessed. Aaron has a wonderful voice and I genuinely look forward to Lore and Cabinet of Curiosities every time they drop. This is my sunny spot in my day every day and I am a fan for life. Your podcast provide a little bit of break from the world and I adore you for it

    I’m a fan of Lore, and I realize that material starts to repeat. I can listen to that any time. What I cannot stand is these stinking “Deeper Lore” episodes that are literally just an advertisement to listen to past episodes, that are still packed with commercials. Why!?! People either listened to it, or they don’t care enough to go back. Quit wasting our time just to get revenue.

    Change For the Worse
    I have been listening to this podcast for many years. Earlier this year I gave up on it, but I recently tried to revisit it, hoping that I was mistaken in my original reasons for leaving. Unfortunately, I was not wrong. It was indeed a mistake to return. The commercial additions, the hard sell to submit to the pay-wall, and the apparent change in intended audience have all caused this show to lose what once made it great. Lore was best when it was a single writer covering topics he enjoyed on his own, with his own voice, and with an intended audience of folklore and strange history fans. The addition of researchers and other writers has only diminished the quality of this show. With their arrival came a shift in focus toward social commentary and, in my opinion, an excessive use of political undertones. If these incredibly unnecessary people were to be removed from Lore it's possible that all of the commercials wouldn't be needed, as I'm sure the increased ad money is being used to fund this deplorable staff. My advice would be to get back to basics and respect the original audience. Lore is too small to pull a Hollywood move like abandoning its audience to force-feed listeners a myopic, anti-intellectual, and ignorant series of prescribed messages instead of just entertaining people through the sharing of folklore, tales of past strangeness, and unusual historical events. Roll it back. Until this happens, I'm out.

    Hi
    Lore is absolutely my favorite podcast out of many, and the only one I listen to without skipping an episode. I started when just 14 episodes had been released, and have enjoyed listening to the progression in the episodes and following podcasts from Grim and Mild. I still get excited many years later to get a new episode routinely! Aaron has a great calming voice while covering sometimes very intense dark subjects, and he has become part of my bedtime routine (working shift work and sleeping at odd hours, generally listening right before sleep). I love the historical depth, and get my creep fix…..Thank you, Aaron, for producing many tremendous shows, but especially Lore.

    Lore is excellent
    Hi. I thoroughly enjoy listening and learning from your Lore podcast i have always been intrigued by odd history and legends. This is right up my alley. Thank you.
  • Baylor is awesome
    The Same
    I used to really like this show but all the episodes are the same now ( I eventually unfollowed the show). I’m sorry but please change it. I never listen to it anymore. They are not historical, factual, nor even real, but it is very repetitive. Please bring it back to how it used to be. Sincerely, Anonymous

    Editing has gone downhill.
    Look, the podcast itself is great. I’ve been listening almost since the beginning. But across the board it seems, Grim and Mild seems to have a major issue with their editing. I also listen to Noble Blood, another G&M podcast, and they both suffer from TERRIBLE editing. The exact same ad replays twice or even three times in a row. The host does multiple takes of a line, and the alternate versions aren’t taken out. This recent Lore episode had the host interrupt the final ad block, and restarted the audio from the last final minutes of the episode. Honestly-it shouldn’t be too much effort to have someone just listen to the episodes all the way through before posting. It’s getting to be so frequent that I’m really not as excited when a new episode drops.

    The ultimate comfort podcast 💖
    I listen to Lore to sleep every night, and have been since 2016. Thank you Aaron, for something so wonderfully whimsical, well researched, calming and interesting. Any time I’m having a hard time, Lore is there to ground me.

    Best Ever
    Lore is my favorite podcast I have been listening for a month and I’m already on episode 218. It teaches me history while also giving me the horror aspect that I love.😊🖤
  • BettieBloem
    Perfect
    I can’t think of anything I don’t enjoy about this podcast! Aaron and Chad are household names, lol. Road trips, whilst working, baking cookies. It’s terrific to enhance any experience where you want sound other than music! Keep it up! We’ve been listening for years!
  • general turtles is so cool
    Good for long car trips!
    I like to listen to lore on long car trips it’s very interesting and passes the time. My only complaint is the upload schedule.
  • This name isn’t taken.
    Love it but…
    A-aron! Stop patting yourself on the back every episode. We know you’ve won awards for this but you should at least act humble. Stop reminding us of your achievements and podcast!

    100% Lore
    Aaron’s writing style is incredibly engaging! I have enjoyed every episode I’ve indulged in and all of his books. Brilliant work on the research aspects; I am always enthralled and call upon Lore’s stories for that intensely strange comfort feeling we get when we listen to spooky tales ✨✨✨
  • ericsgirl42

    Favorite Podcast
    This podcast has been my absolute favorite for the past three years. I’ve listened to all episodes, and all other podcasts that are produced by Aaron Mahnke and Grim and Mild. Lore is just the right amount of spooky/macabre and Aaron Mahnke’s storytelling is unmatched. I love that while the show covers some disturbing topics, the stories are delivered in such a classy manner with no swearing or gratuitous violence/gore. I recommend this podcast to all my friends/family and anyone who’s interested in the darker, more macabre aspects of history. Please never stop making Lore!

    Lore is wonderful
    I’ve listened to every episode of Lore since I found it in 2018. I pay for the ad free episodes, not because the ads bother me but because if you like things you have to support them. Thank you for putting out quality content. I’ll continue to support for the foreseeable future.

    Exceptional
    I have been listening to your podcast since 2019. You have kept me captivated with each episode. You really put so much thought into the show. The musical score, the narration, and details. It doesn’t compare to other podcasts. I appreciate that you get right into the episodes and to be honest even the ads aren’t a big deal to listen to, Thank you!

    WAAAAY TOO MANY ADS!!!
    I i’ve been a subscriber of this podcast for many years. However, lately, the ads are just about as long as the program. I’m not willing to pay for a subscription on a monthly basis to can get rid of ads. So, I’m getting rid of this podcast.

    Grim & Mild
    Has there ever been a podcast production company with the most perfect description of the content. I find this podcast comforting, to be honest. The voice and pacing are perfect- as if being read a bedtime story.
  • German23Girl
    Love this Podcast but…
    I was very impressed and quite entertained when I found this podcast and others from Aaron Mahnke. Being a bit a history junkie, the Grim & Mild collection is fabulous. The reason for only 3 stars is that, without warning, now I would have to pay for the episodes that I was getting as “a loyal listener.” Not the best reward for being a loyal listener, liking, and following…
  • Begown
    Well researched and very enjoyable
    Also love how the 1 star reviews all seem to be either”Lore is too woke” or “Lore is too Euro-centric and white”. Can’t win I guess.
  • Jacqui O Trouble
    Pretty darn good
    Worth a listen if you like the darker side of things…
  • K Wink
    Meticulously researched and well thought out
    Many episodes of LORE are stories you've heard before or are at least aware of, but with much less emphasis on "ghost stories" and more on the actual history of each place, person, or event. Aaron leaves out many of the more gory details, which often lets your imagination fill in the blanks. While there are many different styles of LORE episodes, I think the general takeaway from many of them can be summed up by Nietzsche when he said "Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster..."
  • Sarah603208
    Great podcast
    Love this podcast, it’s historical and sometimes a little creepy. Aaron’s voice is so soothing
