Come pull up a chair by the fireside with Daddy Splitfoot and listen to some devilish folklore submitted by listeners (and expanded upon by your sinister host).

The source for most of this episode is YOU! Our wonderful listeners, who supplied us with this lore back in the Spring during our contest. I also augment two of the pieces of lore with outside sources: 1) The story of Spring-Heeled Jack, adapted from Daniel Cohen’s Encyclopedia of Monsters, and 2) The Wendigo, told from Alvin Schwartz’s collection Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.

One thought on “Special Episode – Daddy Splitfoot’s Fireside Tales (Part One)”

  1. What that woman Charity was referring to are known as Calling Spirits or Calling Ghosts or even Callers in Folklore. Those are evil spirits, sometimes dark souls of the dead and other times demons. My Grandmother was a Witch and she always said never to answer them because if you did they would take your soul. Or they would posses you or attach to you. I had a nasty experience with a Caller once myself.
