Introducing… Folklorica! A podcast about stories hosted by two people who really like hearing, reading and even telling, you guessed it, stories. We’re your hosts Clayton Steacker and Maggie Boles. We are amateur ethnographers. Gifted googlers. We travel the world (metaphorically because we don’t really have money) and bring back folk tales and legends from far and wide. Have you ever heard the story of the legless knight? Well get ready for that and more! We read, we learn, we discuss, and of course, we struggle to pronounce names. But the important thing is WE TRY. Join us every Thursday for Folklorica!

    Bluebeard

    Bluebeard

    Bonjour. Ready for a French folktale??
    Aujourd'hui on lit "Barbe Bleue" de Histoires ou contes du temps passé écrit par Charles Perrault et publié en 1697.
    Except that we're actually reading the version from Andrew Lang's The Blue Fairy Book published 1889. We've heard it stays very true to the original Perrault version and is in English, which is better for us. Enjoy!

My fave

My favorite folklore and fairytale podcast - interesting blend of folklore, research and two funny and fabulous hosts - when is Season 2 coming?

Great stories but a bit heavy on interjections

The hosts pick great folktales, but I wish they would cut in a bit less. It’s hard to get into the story when they interrupt so often.
