Episode 11: Samhain 2017
We briefly reflect on the meaning of Samhain, summarize H. P. Lovecraft's short story "The Rats in the Walls", and explore our relationships with ancestors and other loved ones who have died. Plus, this curses and a very special blessing over your favorite talisman. Or whatever you have on hand.

If you think you may have villainous ancestry, you may be interested in Jonathan Oates book "Tracing Villains and Their Victims: A Guide to Criminal Ancestors for Family Historians." http://amzn.to/2zHcVNr

Or maybe you'd just like to learn more about how your ancestors influence you -- and perhaps find a new freedom from generational curses -- in which case you might appreciate Monica McGoldrick's "The Genogram Journey: Reconnecting with Your Family." http://amzn.to/2iCTYbN
