August was an extra spooky month on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast, with four episodes featuring the haunted rivers of Wales, the evil spirit which – apparently – burnt down a home, and how belief in spirits of the dead grew as belief in fairies declined.
In May 2021 the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast celebrated the 50 (yes, 50!) episodes milestone with a party with the fairy folk. There was also a look at some eerie Gothic funeral traditions, the golden ghost of Mold, and some dangerous fairy lights which lead travellers astray.
