We are having a green lady ghostie experience and Sean Campbell (Karen's husband) is NOT invited! This week both Karen and Lucy recount some stories of this strange faerie/ghost creature of Scotland. Find out why we think they may actually be poltergeists, why you wouldn't want to piss them off (dust in your food anyone?!) and whether Karen is team Edward or Jacob.
If you want to share some tales with us of...well anything really (not that we're desperate...but we're desperate!) email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Come share a wee drink with us! We invite you to listen "in person!"
As much as we are terrified of Poltergeists and have absolutely ZERO interest in discussing them, that's ALL we seem to talk about his week!
The upside is that by devoting our time and attention and our super wise and expansive scientific knowledge of all things supernatural (we did read 2 whole Wikipedia pages, thank you very much) we have come to the conclusion that while yes, these are TOTAL wretched asshole creatures, we did figure they've probably just been Fairies the whole time throughout history so now we can maybe be a lot less scared of them.
And maybe, just maybe Poltergeists are even just a wee bit funny, assuming you put their actions to some lighthearted background music. Except when they leave bits of human flesh wrapped up in tissue paper, inside the crofts they've just burned to the ground. Did we mention they are assholes?
PLEASE share your spooky tales with us! We want to hear them!

This whole episode came about because a listener, Rachel Wise, emailed us a super cool and real Poltergeist story that you can read in it's entirety HERE.
Thank you so much Rachel! We super appreciate your contribution to today's episode!
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!!!!
