Podcast Special – Magical Saints
-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.

The sources today come mostly from the following books:
- The Encyclopedia of Mystics, Saints, & Sages by Judika Illes
- Italian Folktales by Italo Calvino
- Discovering American Folklife by Don Yoder
- The Golden Legend (a collection of saintly folk legends)
- Legends of Beasts & Saints by Helen Wadell and Robert Gibbings
- Mules & Men by Zora Neale Hurston
(also, I used Audacity instead of GarageBand for this episode, so the sound may be a bit different)
