Ghosts and Folklore of Wales with Mark Rees podcast: Ghost stories, lore, myths and legends from haunted Wales. Join author and journalist Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales, Paranormal Wales, The A-Z of Curious Wales etc) - ”arguably Wales’ leading authority on the curious and paranormal aspects of the country’s history” - for a fascinating journey through the weird and wonderful history of Cymru and the world. From ’most haunted’ Welsh castles to fairy-filled forests, each episode explores at a different spine-chilling topic including: pesky poltergeists and uncanny apparitions; seasonal traditions from the Mari Lwyd to Halloween (Nos Calan Gaeaf); real-life ghostbusters and paranormal investigators who hunt in the dark; Gothic funeral and wedding customs such as the macabre Sin Eater and eerie corpse candles; supernatural animals who tour the streets, from the dreaded Gwyllgi to the mystical Ceffyl Dŵr; ancient tales of the Mabinogi/ Mabinogion and King Arthur; and the magic of witches, wizards and the ancient Druids that continue to cast a spell over the land today.
