This podcast is a storytelling journey through world-folklore. With brief context and analysis in the introductions, the main focus is the retelling of stories themselves.
From saucer-eyed spectral dogs to pond-scum haunting child-eating witches - experience the darker side of Britain's folklore in Series 1. Then journey to central and eastern Europe to the world of Slavic folklore, home of Baba Yaga and lurking nature spirits (Series 2). From there, step into the vast world of Nordic Folklore, where creatures abound in the woodlands, mountains and fjords of beautiful northern climes. Look out a series called 'Earth Lore' this autumn/winter to celebrate the natural world and a series on Japanese and Korean folklore next spring.

Unique and lovely

Very unusual and interesting stories told in a soothing and informative way! Very enjoyable

Very Good, memories of elders campfire.

Memories of the storyteller, the shaman’s compatriot, the wise elders and the master-craft of sitting around the campfire with ears and eyes fixed on the flames or the speaker but fully on the texture, colour, breadth, depth, journey, the fear, laughter but at the chore learning. So settle in your cabin on the furs, around the hearth, under a canopy in a tent of poles and skins, around the central flame as the smoke drifts up through the the flume at the cross beams of staves, mingling with the snow it gains height on a field of snow, a camp of canvas and skins, a tribe of europa. With that chill wind maybe jump to summer evenings around a larger gathering with fire pit and feast with friends and loved ones drifting off to sleep under the stars as the storytellers pass down the tales with the simplicity and colour of its original intent. .......DMÓW

Mord ,

An old destination, but a new journey.

The narrator is a story-teller of passion whom has educated me about tales which permeate the country in which I live.

One might initially bulk at an american recounting these stories, but this infact helped me use new eyes to view my world different. These stories bring life to the 'great unwashed' of Thackery and the 'anonymous poor' whom have collectively authored and honed these stories that have existed in the zeitgeist.

Whilst I may normally enjoy analysis and deconstruction to gauge the anthropological meanings, I accept that this is not the place, this is the place to lose yourself in the Fey Worlds.
