Mysteries and Monsters: Episode 88 The Fae, Fairies and Folklore with Morgan Daimler

September 28, 2020

This week, we journey with author Morgan Daimler who will be our guide into the heart of this wonderful and sometimes disturbing folklore.

Morgan has written over 25 books on folklore from around the world, but the majority have been in regards to the Irish legends of the Fae and Fairies.

Morgan shares her extensive knowledge and research with us and guides us through cases, the challenge that a modern belief in Fairies brings, the historical context and written accounts, why we should always be aware of the respect shown to the Fae as well as many other fascinating aspects of "the little people" We also touch on an account of the aftermath of a fairy battle, why Ireland and Iceland still make sure they don't disrespect the Fae and how even atheists have a healthy respect toward the Fae.

It's always interesting to have someone as passionate as Morgan on the show as demonstrated by her current undertaking to teach herself Old Irish to translate more books, poems and accounts of the Fae from the last 1000 years. Now that is impressive!!

You can find Morgan's books here:
