Merry Met virtual traveller and welcome to Stories From Lore. A monthly podcast that invites you to ‘Rewild Yourself Through Story,‘ by exploring nature, folklore and the stories it inspires. My name is Dawn Nelson and I am an author and professional storyteller.
For episode 3 of Season 3 there was a tie between ‘The Dreadful Wind & Rain' and ‘A Poultry Offer’ and so I made the executive decision to go with ‘A Poultry Offer’. It may amuse listeners to know though that I recorded the outdoor chat with the chickens during the tail end of Storm Awen so in a way the two themes have ended up combined in this episode.
For this episode I'm introducing you to my three pom poms of peril, also known as bantam chickens, singing an amusing ballad about a fox out hunting for his dinner, talking about the folklore of geese, turkeys and chickens, and telling the epic story of Chanticleer & Partlet, two dark and murderous chickens.
A Little Note - On occasion there are dark folkloric characters explored in this podcast and so, as always, I would recommend that you should listen through first before listening with younger members of your household.
