One my favorite podcasts!

Lore is one of my favorite podcasts! I got started late to the series, but caught up quickly. And even got my husband to listen to them! Once I was caught up I went back through and started with the remastered episodes.

Doug Spiron ,

Hundreds of Episodes in and I know two things . . .

Aaron -I am hundreds of episodes into Lore and definitively now know two things.

Number one, I love everything about the show. I look forward to each release. The shows are fascinating, entertaining, and so well written and produced.

Number two, each episode is a sleep elixir for my wife. For whatever reason, she rarely makes it to you announcing your name and the show with out falling asleep!

To each their own, success either way!

Crystal Clearrr ,

Love

As a lover of the Macabre, this is my favorite podcast. I appreciate the way Aaron tells a story, without any incessant jabber like most other hosts. Best story teller ever
