    It’s never smart to ignore the warning signs. One man, however, did more than ignore them, and that decision came back to haunt him.

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.

All episodes paid only?

For over 2 weeks I have not been able to download or listen to any episodes. It always gives an error. Even after a week, I’m still unable to check recent past shows. This is the only podcast I’m having this problem with.

I miss the old vocal cadence

The best most interesting show but I no longer enjoy the host’s cadence when he’s speaking. Too fast paced and upbeat for the genre of a dark/spooky podcast. The first season his voice and timing was perfect and pleasant to listen/sleep to. Now I somewhat enjoy it if I slow down the podcast speed, but it’s still not the same. Please slow down!!
