    Matthew Hopkins

    Out of 300 years of witch-hunts and trials in England, one fourteen month period saw more than half of the executions for witchcraft in the nation's history.

    This violent time occurred at the hands of a self-righteous man of East Anglia. Under the guidance of Matthew Hopkins, at least 300 accused witches were executed for supposed crimes. He was the authority on witchcraft in the region, and had a taste for cruelty.

    His self-appointed title: Witchfinder General.

A Must Listen!

I’ve always loved folklore and mythology and fairytales, and this is no exception! The transitions between storytelling and information are seamless, making this an extremely enjoyable listen. My first time listening I binged the first 7 episodes without a break. I can’t wait for more!

New Favorite Podcast

I’ve never known much about folklore but the first episode sucked me in straight away. The presentation is amazing, listening made me feel like I was observing the host on their year walk and hearing their thoughts. The episode weaves in and out of storytelling and teaching inconspicuously, and it honestly brought me back to the wild imagination that came with being read to as a child. Well done, can’t wait for more!
