Program 382b: Pirates of the Carolinas; Faeries of Ireland; Ghosts of San Francisco
Release Date: 10-31-2020
Just in time for Halloween and All Souls Day, we'll explore the legacy of the real-life pirates who operated off the Carolina coast of colonial America. A pair of Irishmen clue us in to their country's traditions about the different orders of faery people that some believe inhabit Ireland. And we'll learn about ghost sightings in San Francisco and the stories that come with them.
