A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!
Spooky Season continues with our 2nd annual collaborative Halloween episode with Owen Innes from the Scottish History Podcast!
Once again, the 4 of us gather round the camp fire dressed in out costumes, eating too many sweets while we tell each other most spooky stories! This we exclusively talk about Scottish Witches, some of the wilder stories about them and look into where the witch hunt mania came from.
You'll hear all about King James VI/I and his obsession with accusing women of witchcraft; Janet Douglas & the Pollock Park Witches; The Pittenweem Witch Trials; Scotland's Last Witch and much more!
Sit back, have a drink from what we have bubbling in the cauldron and enjoy this week's ep.
