About The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast

Hello and welcome 😍  thanks for dropping in!

How did The Modern Fairy Sightings Project emerge? 🐛🦋

In around 2007 I had my own fairy encounter which I had previously thought was impossible.  I wanted to know more about this fascinating phenomenon and began working with landscape and magick ritual.

With a background in social research, I undertook a Masters in History in 2014 with Professor Ronald Hutton, focusing on the portrayal of the Fae. In 2016 I co-authored a chapter in Dr Simon Young's book, ‘Magical Folk: British and Irish Fairies 500AD to the Present’ and began researching contemporary accounts.

In lockdown 2020, I realised it was time to speak publicly with others about these sorts of experiences...and ⚡️ The Modern Fairy Sightings Podcast was born!⚡️


✨ Why is the Project so important?

For those who have experienced similar encounters, it helps to hear others talk about it. When I first saw a fairy, I had no one to immediately discuss it with. There's a kind of taboo around these experiences. People often assume that you're mistaken, under the influence of substances or delusional.

But ordinary people, with no interest in fairies are regularly having extraordinary encounters all over the world that they cannot explain or discuss for fear of ridicule or fear of the unknown.

💚 What are the Project's aims?

☆ To allow people to share their own fairy encounters, so that their stories can be witnessed.
☆ To provide validation for others who have encountered fairies, so that they don't feel alone with that experience.
☆ To aid further understanding about this mysterious Universe.

🌸 What is Patreon?

Patreon is a membership platform where fans can support projects. When you sign up to become my patron, you're supporting me to continue making podcasts and research further into this area. My aim for 2022 is to write a book about all the experiences I've collected, your support will provide me with committed time for the Project. 

In return, you'll get bonus episodes, access to our private community and I'll keep you updated on my research and what I'm getting up to behind the scenes. You will become part of this project, helping with decision making and sharing your ideas.
