    Ep 236: Hoodoo and Voodoo with Dr. Jeffrey Anderson

    A review of Voodoo for you!
    Flora is joined by History professor Dr. Jeffrey Anderson for a very informative discussion on Hoodoo and Voodoo! One of the foremost experts on Hoodoo and Voodoo, Dr. Jeffrey Anderson offers a detailed interview on the history and culture of this poorly-understood religion. David asks questions on how it got started, how it spread and evolved, and what the modern practice looks like. The pantheon of deities is discussed, as is the distinction between hoodoo and even a little bit about zombies. Dr. Anderson provides a veritable king cake of knowledge (with a voodoo doll baby to find) in this episode of Blurry Photos!

Folklorist Deborah Hyde also shares her insights into the socio-economic aspects of the creature through history.

    Ep 234: Werewolves part 1

    Ep 234: Werewolves part 1

    Howl's wolfing castle.
    Blurry Photober continues as Flora cracks open the history book on werewolves! A classic horror monster, werewolves have been around different cultures for millennia, but maybe not quite the way you think. David explores the origins of this popular mythology, including tales from antiquity, global versions, and the beginning of their evolution to what we know and love today. Joining the fun is folklorist, cultural anthropologist, and editor of The Skeptic magazine, Deborah Hyde. Deborah is kind enough to share her insight into werewolf history and lore. The subject is wild and wooly, and just one part won't cut it. Enjoy this, the first of 2 parts all about the wildest, most transformative monster you ever need poop bags for!
