Cream of the crop

IMO the best folklore podcast i’ve found. Usually very interesting episodes covering a wide range of folklore topics. The style is very understated (a good thing!) the host is well-spoken, easy to understand & there’s no cheesy sound effects or bad attempts at humour that I find can ruin this subject. Occasionally the guests are a bit dull or there is bad sound quality that makes it hard to understand them but these episodes are few & far between, many of them i’ve listened to several times- they are dense & full of information. Highly recommended!

Fascinating and really well made

I really love folklore but find a lot of podcasts deal with it more in terms of storytelling - which is fine and I do enjoy those too - but I am really interested in the academic/anthropology side as well. This podcast is fantastic - really well researched and presented with contributions from genuine experts in their fields and also very entertaining and enjoyable to listen to. I love it!
