Today Karen, with the help of famed folklorist Katherine Briggs, is doing a folklore deep dive to try and make sense of the varied fairy and ghost sightings that have been so common throughout Scottish (and Celtic) history. We discuss all manner of supernatural creatures in this in-depth episode! From Hobgoblins, Dobies, Brownies to Boggarts, Silkies, Dunnies, and, always, a bunch of true ghosts and modern-day hauntings thrown in for good measure!!
Huge thanks to Ginger and Altina for submitting their amazing ghost stories!! Here's one of the photos submitted by Altina that we show on the YouTube video version (below).
Can you see that freaky face staring back at you?!?! Ahhhhhhh!!!!

From the very first episode, our art student, Nikki Web has been relaying us some of her spooky ghost and family stories from growing up in Scotland. Today she has graced us with her presence and is here to tell us these fun stories in PERSON! Pour yourself a wee dram, sit back, relax and listen with us recount some of her super cool ghosty sightings, experiences, and fascinating dreams!
If you'd rather hang out with us "in person" you can watch the un-edited YouTube version here!
We are THRILLED to welcome a very special Guest to the podcast today!!! Her name is Ginger and she has been "blessed" from a young age to be able to detect energies around her. And from humans to not-so-humans, detect things she does indeed!!! Pour yourself perhaps MORE than a wee dram for this episode (like, a regular or a large dram would be good) because this is 2 hours of ghost telling stories you are NOT going to want to miss!!!
Check out these eerie photos from Ginger!
These were taken from her trip to Hawaii. Looks like a fairy to us!!!
In this photo you can see the orbs she is talking about, where the tour guide made everyone leave the area immediately!
In the Podcast episode, Ginger also references being able to see a figure between two trees as the guide was ushering everyone back to the bus.
For those who'd like to laugh along with us "in person", check out the video version of the Episode! (Usually the video version is unedited but adding in the background music was so much work (and I think sounded much better!) so I am giving you that version here too!
