Show Notes

In this episode, Mark begins his descent into becoming a cartoon supervillain! Amidst many tangents and asides, we discuss the rather cheerful stories of Scottish fairies and sea-folk. We look at the legend of the Selkie, several stories about Changelings (including the story of Wee Johnnie in the Cradle), and the tale of how you should always accept mysterious buttermilk! We look at many of the morals and underlying symbolisms of these Scottish tales, and how they relate to us today.  Follow us (and recommend us books for Season 3) on Twitter! @UlmtdOpinions
