Episode 11: Life Lessons from Witches Around the World

Join Beatrice, Heather, and Elizabeth on their final installment of their October witch series. From Baba Yaga and Jenny Greenteeth to the Bell Witch and the Raven Mocker, witch-like figures from folklore around the world are discussed. The conversation turns from creepy to chilling as Elizabeth sobers the conversation with a look into women persecuted for witchcraft in South America.

Really, though, we at SWP see this episode as a how-to, real-life guide on navigating the dangers of the world. Just a few words of wisdom include: always beware of Bigfoot, don’t open the door you were told to ignore, and, as always, never enter a hut that stands on chicken legs.
