    Episode 179: Confidence

    Folklore has many uses, and a quick trip through history would reveal many that you’ve come to expect.

But one particular use for folklore needs a deeper look…because it’s beyond thrilling.

Awesome

I really love lore. There are so many episodes and they are so intriguing. One trillion out of ten.

Rename it Burn the Witch podcast

About one in three episodes is about woman abuse through the ages under the guise of witch hunting.
