…but fair warning… leave your Tinkerbell’s

and Leprechauns at the door,

it’s time to talk about the real Faeries.

We know that Faerie of traditional Celtic Faerie Folklore are old and clever.

But did you know they can treacherous too, and are all around us, watching, always watching. But what are they thinking?

Are they impressed by our touchscreen technology or do they curse our lack of enlightenment?  Should we fear them?

Here at ‘Encounters with the Good People’ we are on a mission to find out. Every episode explores creatures, theory or phenomena related to the Good People using anecdotal and written accounts from genuine sources, as well as through music, poetry and art.

It’s light, it’s chatty, and it just might change your mind about the Good People.

Tune in every Wednesday and join Kitty for a new episode to discover if the Good People are our Friend, our Foe, both or… neither!
