Episode 26 - Holiday Stories

Happy Holidays to you, our beautiful friends. Grab some cocoa or mulled wine, get cozy under a blankie, light up that yule log and join us for some holiday folklore involving women, trolls, spindles, snow maidens, and some good old holiday kidnapping. Christmas stories can get weird, y'all.
