The Folklore Podcast is a unique mix of both education and entertainment, as well as a regular host and fantastic guests.

Creator Mark Norman is a folklore researcher and author, and committee member of The Folklore Society. His network gives the show access to many experts working in the field of folklore who appear on the podcast to discuss their work. This means that you get free access to some of the world's finest researchers.

Although academic in nature, the podcast is presented in a lively way, suitable for listeners of any age. Since its launch, The Folklore Podcast has been generating five-star ratings on iTunes in the UK, US and Canada and people tell us that they love its mix of guests, information and more.

Each podcast is supported by an episode transcript which all patrons receive.

Our episodes will always be free to listen to, but your support will help us to bring you so much more: bonus content, books and films and live events.

Goals
$227 of $250 per month
GOAL 2:  ORIGINAL DVD DOCUMENTARY
One of the next steps for the podcast is to expand on our audio output and begin to move into the visual side of our subject as well. The next goal of $250 per month will push this to the next stage. We want to give you more than just little films on a YouTube channel.
On achieving this goal, The Folklore Podcast will produce a full-length original documentary on an aspect of folklore, written by host Mark Norman and presented by a professional actor. This documentary will go on sale via the podcast webstore but will be available free in various formats to all of our patrons (including those who have supported us prior to this goal. See the updated rewards for more details for both new and existing patrons.
