Episode 93 – The Poppet Master

Details

In this episode, Cody and Chris talk about poppets, or dolls - based on people - used for rituals. First, Cody shares some basic spells you can do with your very own poppet. Then, Chris tells a story about the legends behind Guatemalan Worry Dolls. Next, Cody discusses a murderous (and true) story about a voodoo fish doll that may have killed a family. Finally, Chris talks about a pagan celebration called Imbolc, and the related poppets known as Brigid Dolls. This week’s drinks/food are empanadas and Big Wave beer.
