EP95 The Baby-stealing Ghost and Other Mysteries; or, Warnings to the Curious: Uncanny tales of paranormal activity - Explore the lore on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast
A phantom horseman, a baby-stealing ghost, a warning from the future and even miniature fairy-sized spooks.
In this episode we explore a series of short but sweet and seemingly unconnected supernatural tales collected from the wilds of Wales. Can you unlock their paranormal mysteries? And should they serve, to quote MR James, as a warning to the curious?
What is the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees podcast?
The "Ghosts and Folklore of Wales" podcast explores Welsh ghost stories, lore, myths and legends.
Launched by author and journalist Mark Rees in early 2020, this weird and wonderful podcast takes a fascinating look at the country's countless curious subjects by combining decades of research and insights from many books and articles with long-lost tales from dusty old tomes.
Ranging from "real life" encounters with the uncanny to fantastical tales from the Mabinogion, new episodes are uploaded on Thursdays (weekly most of the time, biweekly when book and media deadlines are looming) and feature everything from pesky poltergeists to fire-breathing dragons.
Along with the regular stories you can also expect the odd special guest, an occasional "live" ghost hunt, and all sorts of crazy ideas. Seasonal specials include the dark and Gothic Halloween (Nos Calan Gaeaf) traditions of old, to everyone's favourite skulled-skulled Christmas visitor, the Mari Lwyd herself.
Dare you explore haunted Wales? Think of it as opening the Welsh The X-Files, along with some tenuous Ghostbusters links!
