Leave your magic mushrooms at the door, Kitty is here to talk about the real Faeries: The Good People, The Wee Folk or the Sidhe.
Faerie of traditional Irish Faerie Folklore are old and clever, but can be terribly tricksy.
They are all around us and watching, always watching.
But what are they thinking? Are they impressed at how we raise our children, or think they could do it better?
Should we fear them?
In this episode, Kitty bins the moral judgement and shares a true story of a Tipperary woman who was killed by her husband and father in an attempt to rid her body of a ‘Faerie Changeling’ and asks:
Were claims of ‘Faerie Changelings’ a form of mass hysteria?
Did they mask a darker truth: murder?
Or were they genuine cases of Faerie intervention in Human lives?
We ponder the poem of a Human girl abducted by the Good People and as always, Kitty explains why it’s okay to believe in Faeries.
