Hooked!

I found this podcast in a general search for lore and folktales and have been hooked from the first episode! I am listening through them all and they are perfect in getting me though my workday. Kelly is a great storyteller and does her research to share these stories. As a northerner with southern roots it is fun to hear stories of some familiar and not so familiar stories and places!

Southern and Spooky

I’ve been listening to this show on Spotify for the past three days and I’m already caught up to date on everything that’s currently released. I’ve really been enjoying it, because I really appreciate viewing the interesting history of the south through such an occasionally spooky lens. I’ve been having a lot of fun listening! I also very much appreciate that Kelly always makes sure to lists trigger warnings before any particularly tough subjects — it’s very considerate, and I think should be common practice, even if it isn’t. I appreciate it! Thanks, Kelly!
