Most interesting.

A podcast I compare other podcasts to(none compare to its uniqueness). It’s most interesting, highly recommend.

Lore is Like History, but Better

As someone who enjoys mythology, lore, folktales and faerie tales, this podcast is excellent. It is the perfect blend of historical context and storytelling. It is also a good length for my daily walk. I used to dread trudging through the heat, but with Lore to look forward to (and a new sun hat), I’m enjoying my outside time to good deal more.
