You have been unbelievable patient with me PATRONS!
This episode took longer to put together that I would have liked, but it is also our longest podcast yet! Researching this podcast was quite a trip for me - it's about the Algonquin lore surrounding the wendigo/weedigo, a story I grew up hearing, but one I didn't really understand until now.
If you're interested in going a little deeper, here are the sources that I use and I highly recommend the website http://www.ourvoices.ca that houses a wonderful archive of recordings from indigenous elders, like Louis Bird.
