I’ve got a spooky new podcast!
Yes, I’ve talking about it for YEARS, but I finally have a new podcast.
After hours and hours of blood, sweat and tears (OK, maybe just sweat), I’ve finally launched the world’s first podcast dedicated to Welsh ghost stories, folklore, myths and legends.
You can listen to the first batch of episodes… NOW!
It’s called the Ghosts & Folklore of Wales podcast with Mark Rees and it’s about (surprise surprise) Welsh ghosts and folklore.
It’s a bit like a Welsh X-Files, but Mulder and Scully have merged into one person, and have forgotten all of their skills or abilities. On the plus side, they have gained the ability to speak the Welsh language.
I’ll be investigating a different weird and wonderful subject on each episode based on the research for my books and articles including Ghosts of Wales, Curious Wales and Paranormal Wales.
There’ll also be lots of exclusive bits you’ll never find anywhere else, like some very special guests which I’ve got tucked up my sleeve, and some topical spooky news stories that I’ll be sticking my nose into.
To kick things off I decided to start with a few of my favourite real-life ghost tales from the Victorian archives, spine-chilling accounts which might be familiar to anyone who has popped along to one of my Ghosts of Wales Live! events.
But this just the start.
With a new episode uploaded every Thursday, I’ll soon be exploring all manner of curiosities, from the secret origins of folkloric favourites likes of the ever-festive Mari Lwyd, to the Welsh Halloween, Nos Calan Gaeaf.
