Comments

Welcome to Season 4 and the first theme for this season is ‘The Horned Gods’. In this episode I explore the prince of the forest, the stag and its associated folklore, gods and mythology. 

On occasion there are dark folkloric characters explored in this podcast and so, as always,  I would recommend that you should listen through first before listening with younger members of your household.

To 'Rewild Yourself Through Story', join me on patreon for digital zines, a book club, audio stories, previews, earlier extended versions of this podcast and online workshop.
