134 – The Trouble with Trows

by Louis Moe

The Trows of Shetland and Orkney Islands are curious creatures who have, at least in the past, enjoyed a relatively harmonious co-existence with Humans.

Often seen going about their daily activities, these are some of the more visible of all the Good People.

In this episode, I offer an explanation as to why Trows are so willing, or at least indifferent, to be seen or interact with Humans.

We also ponder their complicated character which can swing from generous to sociable to vindicative and discover they are a brilliant example of typical Faerie behaviour.

133 – The Fairy Cow

by Warwick Goble

I’ll be back next week with a regular episode exploring the Good People but, for today I have a wonderful tale to share with you from Ireland.

I love this tale; I hope you will too. It shows us just how complicated our interactions with the Faerie can be and gives insight into the kind of human characteristics the Faerie not only like, but reward.

Sending love and warmest thanks to my patrons for their ongoing support and faith in me and encounters with the good people. I couldn’t do it without you! Now, I hope you will enjoy this marvellous tale of Fairy Cows.

 I’m taking a wee break from our regular podcast and will be back soon to dive deep and explore who the Good People really are, but in the meantime, I’m delighted to be able to bring you a few wonderful tales of Faerie.
This week I’m sweeping you away to Wales for the tale of ‘The Lad who returned from Faerye’. I hope you will enjoy this tale; it has its ups and downs and always leaves me with a little tear in the eye…

130 – The Faerie Rose

by Brian Froud.

This week we share a personal experience which at first glance, might appear to be a simple, ordinary exchange between 2 people about a very special rose, but… could it actually have been a profound, life-changing moment?

I believe that oftentimes when we encounter the Good People, we don’t realize it until sometime later. Our busy conscious mind might not recognise this, but our subconscious mind does.

 

And it doesn’t let it go. It is alerted by unusual signals, it recognises the rare signs. The flags go up. The hair on the back of your neck tingles.

All signs that the sighting, encounter or interaction was not ‘normal’, that there was something ‘other’ in the experience. And that’s when things get really interesting. When we open our minds to the ‘other’.

by Christian Schloe.

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.
