    Why do we tell ghost stories at Christmas?

    Perhaps more than Halloween, Midwinter is often a time traditionally associated with ghost stories. But why do we tell ghost stories at this time of year? Why do ghosts continue to preoccupy us? And are there ways to keep troublesome ghosts at bay at Midwinter? 


    This talk in conjunction with the Creswell Crags Folklore Festival will explore these ideas as we seek to get closer to the spirits...

A Relaxed and Informative Listen

This is an incredibly informative and in-depth dive into folklore, which really has no peers, from what I’ve heard on offer out there.

Sedgwick’s soothing and seductive English accent helps carry each of the very well researched episodes to the listener, making the podcast feel like more of conversational event than an intimidating info-dump, given the vast amount of information delivered with every listen.

This one is hands down my favourite podcast on Folklore.
