129 – The Sinister Joint-Eater

by Omar Rayyan.

I hope I find you well today and enjoying a strong stomach because we are looking at a particularly icky member of the Good People. It’s hard to imagine anyone nominating this parasitic creature as a favourite but it sure is interesting, and a good one to know how to avoid.

The Joint Eater, also known as the Alp Luachra, is a small newt-like creature which really likes Humans, from the inside-out…

In this episode I share one extraordinary tale of an attack by a Joint Eater. We discover just how disgusting this creature can be, how easily it can catch a Human host and most importantly, how to rid yourself of one (and avoid them altogether!).

128 – A Fairy Thorn & the Coming of Wisdom

by Stephanie Law.

How often have you smiled and nodded, then completely ignored the advice of an older, more experienced relative or friend?

In the tale of ‘The Fairy Thorn’ from Newfoundland, we find a gentle reminder to acknowledge the experiences and wisdom of those who have come before us: our Elders.

When it comes to understanding and keeping ourselves safe from the Good People, we are each of us indebted to our Ancestors and their willingness to trickle wisdom down through the generations so that we do not repeat their mistakes.

But what happens when we ignore their wisdom? Sometimes a very long and painful lesson must be learned by a new generation…

127 – The Fetch: a Faerie Death Omen

by Christian Schloe.

Have you ever heard of the ‘Fetch’?

I’m not sure you will ever want to see one!

A Fetch is kind of supernatural double, or vision of a person.

At first glance, and depending of course on where you see a Fetch, you might think it a doppelganger, a lookalike or twin of someone of yourself or someone you know.

But it is not.

Neither is a Fetch a ghost: it is an apparition of a living person who has just died or is about to die and many believe it is sent by the Good People themselves.

Join me to hear tales of Fetch sightings and explore why the Good Folk might use such an eerie method of forewarning death.

126 – Gwyllgi: the curious ‘Corpse Dog’ of Wales

I have some tremendous tales for you about the Gwyllgi, also known as the ‘Corpse Dog’ of Wales.

Not unlike dear Banshee, the Corpse Dog acts as a portent of death, its rare but unforgettable howl signalling an impending death. These phantoms are anything but simple messengers, not least being their unlikely camaraderie with our own pet dogs!

Please join me to find out more and together we’ll enter into the grey space, the great unknown where, we think… Faerie and Spirit realms crossover.

125 – Would you walk through a Faerie Field?

 

by Dee Nickerson.

Strange things happen in and around a Faerie Field.

A Faerie Field is a field which is known to host or home members of the Good People, some fields are positively rife with activity, suggesting they may be a gathering place or even on a Faerie path.

Faerie behaviour in and around Fairy Fields, is unpredictable and you can believe if a field has been given the name of a Fairy field, it is for good reason.

Local folk having experienced or witnessed Fairy activity over generations have shared their tales for to caution others to be mindful in that location, and in this episode, we share 4 particularly strange tales.

124 – When is a Werewolf, not a Werewolf?

by Frank Frazetta

The word ‘Werewolf’ conjures a fairly consistent image in our minds. An image sown long ago and fertilized regularly by film, tv, storybooks, comic books, role playing games, even video games.

But, as with the stereotypical image of a fairy looking like a Tinkerbell creature, we must constantly remind ourselves that the Good People, are not like these fictional characters.

They are real, they are unpredictable and they may appear before us in many forms: some of these creatures could even take a human-hybrid form.

In this episode we take a close look at two extraordinary reports of creatures, part-human, part-wolf and discover that they may have had entirely reasonable reasons for terrifying the Humans they encountered.

One of the things I love most about Encounters with the Good People is hearing of your own experiences, sightings or encounters and it always feels such a privilege too.

To share our personal experiences is a wonderful way of better understanding the Good People: who or what they are, where they dwell and what their behaviour can tell us about what they might think of us.

In this episode we hear 4 incredible encounters sent in from listeners or viewers of Encounters with the Good People. I also invite you to share your own experience of a sighting or encounter with the Good People at my new email address: yourencounterstories@gmail.com

122 – Signs Faerie are Nearby: ‘Smell’

Phewie! I can smell him from here!!! by Brian Froud.

There are many ways we can know that the Good People are near us and loads of tales which indicate signs of their presence.

So many in fact, that I couldn’t possibly cover them all in one Podcast episode, so we will be looking at this topic over a series of episodes.

These episodes, like the Good People, are unpredictable, and could pop up anytime!

There are descriptions of the good folk as being ‘perfumed’, smelling like roses or other sweetly fragrant flowers. But, did you know… the Good People, when they’re not happy, can stink.

And are known to use foul smell to communicate with humans. Sometimes to warn them off or even to punish them. In this episode, I share three incredible true accounts of Faerie smells.

121 – The Gancanagh (aka The Love-Talker)

by Edmund Dulac.

When is a broken heart more than just a broken heart?

Beware the tunes that touch your heart.

The Gancanagh will play the soul

Beware, sweet lass, don’t crave his art

He’ll pierce your heart and leave a hole.”

 

by Edmund Dulac.

The Gancanagh, also known as the Love-Talker, is a member of the Good People you best hope you never encounter! He seduces decent, innocent women into falling madly in love with him. Once he has conquered her, the Gancanagh disappears, leaving her to pine her life away (literally!).

You know the old saying “it’s the quiet ones you want to watch”, well this applies perfectly to the Gancanagh, he wreaks havoc subtlety, in sweet whispers.

And this perhaps is why he has been able to ply his particular trade for so very long.

In this episode we ponder if the Gancanagh not only enjoys, but is nourished by, the misery and torment he causes. I hope you can join me for the chat.

120 – Visiting a Faerie Market

 

by Charles Vess.

When you think of Faerie fairs or markets, you mind most likely turns to glorious colourful painting or illustration depicting an idyllic scene of various faerie characters browsing baskets of fruit or platters of cakes, musicians and dancers scattered about.

by Charles Vess.

It’s a lovely image, isn’t it? On this week’s episode, we discover that Faerie do gather for markets, but they are less whimsy than you might imagine.

There are many recorded accounts which show us that not only do the Good People hold their own markets, but they also take a keen interest in our own human markets and fairs too. I hope you can join me as we share some poems and true curious accounts of Faerie Markets.
