This is a good show.
25 October 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was reading the reviews and found it bizarre how people were attacking the narrator Aaron Mahnke's voice. This is the only time I've ever heard his voice and I didn't find anything unpleasant about it. The guy has a hit podcast using this same voice - which doesn't add up with reviews of people not liking his voice. I really didn't put any thought behind the talking. I just listened and watched the stories.

I've never listened to the 'Lore Podcast', but I'm certainly going to. This is a wonderful idea, it plays out very well and held my interest (which isn't easy). I will mention that I preferred the first three episodes, but the last three I already knew too much about. I'd like to have more obscure tales; I don't know how easy that would be, but I think it's necessary for this format.

My favorite episode was the 3rd one called 'Black Stockings'. I think Ireland has our most famous folklore, but I'd probably look for folk tales originating in countries that Americans have very little knowledge of.

There's unheard of myths & legends from places such as Africa that most people have never heard of. There's also several unique tales within the Middle East. Japan has a gigantic collection of legends, although they've become popularized through films. Maybe consider folklore from places that haven't culturally melded with the United States?

Great job so far. Looking forward to more.
