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.

GOAL 3: PAID RESEARCH AND ADMIN HOURS
At the moment, researching and writing the podcast fits in among the myriad of other things which keep the wolf from Granny's cottage door.

It also continues with the aim of ensuring the podcast is always ad-free.
