Season 4 Episode 3: Wise Old Salmon - The Folklore & Stories of Salmon

Season 4 continues with Episode 3 – Wise Old Salmon. In this episode we’re exploring the folklore, nature and stories of the ever resilient and persevering salmon.

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.
