THE FOLKLORE PODCAST
About the Podcast
There are a number of great podcasts on the internet. A lot of these deal with the unexplained, or the paranormal. Still others examine strange and bizarre stories. But there are few show which examine that pure area of Folklore: traditions, customs and the like, which so many people find fascinating. That is the remit of The Folklore Podcast.
What makes The Folklore Podcast so special is that many of the episodes feature eminent folklorists from around the world: researchers, authors and professors in their fields. This means that as listeners, you get to enjoy access to their research, findings and views, absolutely free, every episode.
