Folklore has been used for generations to share stories across cultures. Each week this season Rachael and Mindy, walk the winding path of folklore. They ask how the stories we tell influence today’s culture and how we view women. From murder ballads to fairytales, we discuss the power these stories have over us all. It won’t be just sad but maybe, just maybe, also uplifting. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/femlore-podcast/support
