Ep 65: Guest Host Takeover with Kate Ray and Claire Casely

✨Welcome to part one of two Guest Host Takeover specials produced by my fellow podcasters and researchers.*

In this episode I’m delighted to introduce hosts Kate Ray of Hare in the Hawthorn and Claire Casely of ‘Fairy Whispering Podcast’. Their fabulous chat includes a discussion on the merits of gnomes (Kate hails from Nottingham, scene of the Wollaton Gnomes) and pixies (Claire is from Devon, land of the pixies).

🧌🧚🏻‍♀️ They discuss our human connection with nature, and their own personal relationships with fairy beings. Some musings are offered on the evolution of fairies and they even treat us to some encounters from their local area!

Thanks so much to these marvellous women, who are also dear friends 💗

On the next special episode we’ll hear from Bethan Briggs-Miller of Eerie Essex and Spectre of the Sea and Icy Sedgwick of Fabulous Folklore with Icy .

*Jo will return with a brand new series on Sunday September 3rd.

Jo offers a look at the life and work of 19th century Cornish poet, John Harris. Though narrated excerpts from his autobiography, we catch a glimpse of how our ancestors may have lived and their close relationship with nature.
