Love Lore, Hate the ad format

Amazing podcast with great stories and told so well by Aaron, but to go from Aaron’s soothing voice to ADVERTISEMENT back to a soothing story is very jarring. If the ad format was better I’d give this podcast 5 stars and recommend placing the ad at the beginning or end, it would make so much more sense. Overall, if you don’t mind a pop up ad here and there this podcast will satisfy any folklore lovers hungry.
