-SHOWNOTES FOR PODCAST SPECIAL-
In our only June 2012 episode (sorry! I’ll be back from school soon!) Cory tells a few tales of magical saints. The saints range from canonical choices to folk tales to at least one very American folk saint.

Promos & Music
“Grifos Muertos” by Jeffery Luck Lucas, from his album What We Whisper, on Magnatune.com
All incidental music comes from the group Zephyrus, on Magnatune (except for one incidental bumper which I sampled from YouTube)
(also, I used Audacity instead of GarageBand for this episode, so the sound may be a bit different)

Very excited to hear about it! Next month I will begin my hoodoo rootwork course so knowing more about the saint (which i think i will be working with soon) will be a huge boon! Also how was your experience using Audacity? its what i use primarily for my show, I am hoping to learn more about it soon to make use of all of the tools. So powerful, but very little documentation. Anywho! Cant wait to get home to listen!
I really loved the story about the inkeeper with the bottle and fig tree. I heard a similar story once, but it was a gypsy who had done things much like the inkeeper, but it involved the devil. It was called, The Gypsy Who Tricked His Way Into Heaven. At least, I think that’s what it was called. It was something like that.
Great special. I have not worked with saints (although my Ma has a bit) but I found the information very intriguing. I love the way you make the specials so atmospheric with the mood and music. Even if the topic is something I am not working with, I am tuned in eitherway.
Keep um coming!
I love you two! I love the podcast. I started working from the bottom up, first episode forward and I listen to the podcasts almost every day. I feel like I’m sitting with friends and laughing along. LOVE what you do so much.
Catching up… getting there.
Big thank you for all you do. Keep doing it!
