    Episode 208: Bygone

     

    Humans have never let go of folklore designed to help us find things, even if it seems like it’s from another time, long ago. But in stories about our search for things, it’s possibly to find something a lot more thrilling.

    Written and produced by Aaron Mahnke, with research by Sam Alberty.

Listening for years and I still look forward to each Monday

I am a huge Lore-fan! I had the pleasure of seeing Aaron live in 2019 and I have listened to every episode and read his books, seen the Amazon Prime Series, etc.
I have seen a lot of hate in these reviews lately and it makes me sad. I also think it’s ironic that folks can’t recognize the right to free speech includes whatever you want to post on Twitter, along with their disparaging comments… I appreciate how Aaron uses his influence to suggest we can all do better. I know the world is full of dark stuff, the material in the podcast is evidence of that, but I think overall the message I take away is always how can we be the light. Thank you! I will keep listening!

I’ve listened for years but finally saying hi because these 1* reviews are so mean.

Thank you!

I absolutely love listening. I drive a lot with my job and enjoy listening to ever single story I can’t pick a favorite. Thank you for brining these stories to life. “HI” Aaron from Putnam county WV. Can’t wait to hear more from you!

Mostly good, occasionally confusing and cringy

I like Lore a lot. The content and storytelling are excellent, especially if you like dark history. However, I must complain about some of the perplexing choices in its production, from episode titles and introductions that are completely unrelated to the main content of the episode (e.g. an episode about vampires called “Deep and Twisted Roots”), and descriptions that are vague to the point of uselessness, to the tiresome use of melodramatic pauses leading to cringy one-liners.
