Enjoy some music and tales from the Emerald Isle on this St. Patrick's Day special. We begin the episode with the lead singer of Danu who introduces a song from their latest album Baun which means everlasting in Irish. We are then joined by The Story Archaeologists a team of storytellers and podcasters whose focus is on uncovering the oldest layers of Irish Myths. Which means we get to the root of the tale of Leprecauns and how they changed from humorous water sprites to green clothed cobblers. Spoilers its all Loki's fault.
