GHOSTS AND FOLKLORE OF WALES with Mark Rees EP08 The Ghost of Dylan Thomas - Laugharne

The Ghost of Dylan Thomas, and his many haunts in Wales and the world: Ghosts and Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees EP08

Does the ghost of Dylan Thomas continue to visit his old haunts? Has his spirit gone gently in that good night, or does it rage, rage against the dying of the light?

The eighth episode of the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast is live… NOW!

In what is the most ambitious, and truly epic episode to date, I go in search of the truth behind the many claims that the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas continues to visit his old haunts.

Some are outlandish, some are more compelling, and there’s even the time the bard himself spoke of his own belief in life after death, how he’d seen a ghost with his own eyes, and his fascinating theory as to why some spirits refuse to rest in peace.

There are ghostly heads in hotels, spectral dogs patrolling the streets, a murderous bishop in a wine cellar, and even Aleister Crowley, who makes an appearance in a French pub to make Dylan’s face turn white.

The journey begins in Laugharne, the idyllic Carmarthenshire town where he spent the last years of his life, before heading to the English capital London, his hometown of Swansea, and even a trek across the pond to New York.

My podcast episodes are usually 20 to 30 minutes long, but there was so much to cram into this one that’s it’s twice as long – double the fun!
