In this episode, Karen reads out some stories about fairy music to Lucy, but before that (and during, and after...) we chat about a whole host of paranormal (or even non paranormal!) things including some theories on fairy origins, where you might get stuck as a ghost, fairies caught on camera on tiktok, our NEW art book, and a rant about modern technology amongst other things...all aided by the thievery of Sean Campbell's BEST bourbon.

Lucy and Karen were actually together in Scotland!!! AGAIN! We went on a Thelma and Louise style road trip (minus Brad Pitt unfortunately!!) and toured 'round some castles together, searching for a new venue for our Scottish Castle Art Retreats!
A Scottish Castle road trip would not be complete without some spooky goings-ons though!! So in this episode (that we recorded TOGETHER in the flesh) we recount some of the strange happenings that occurred in both the castles we visited AND in our hotels!!
Brace yo'self for the ridiculousness!!

This may be 1.5 hours long but its 1.5 hours FULL of real life ghost stories from our recent trip to Scotland! Karen and Ginger joined Lucy in her homeland and we stayed at Wardhill Castle for a week. Ginger is our special ghost whisperer!! In this episode she tells us all about the castle ghosts that she encountered!
If you'd fancy hanging with use "in person" you can watch the YouTube version as well!!
Here's the little 3 minute video I took of Ginger while we were in the Gold Room - simply incredible!!!
And here's another!
If you're not familiar with Wardhill Castle, it's actually the home of the Leslie family and has been in their family for 900 years!
You may be more familiar with the Leslie family than you realize! Their daughter, Rose, is a famous movie actress!
When we were there in June of 2022 (when this video was recorded) Rose landed the cover of Bizaar Magazine for that exact month!) which was ummmm... a bit weird and surreal! Especially since the mag was just casually sitting out on the castle's coffee table in the cozy sitting room!
And here's the castle itself!!

You'll also hear me talk about the flickering lights in Crathes Castles and here's the little video I got while I was there.
