Ep 173: Skinwalkers

Might give you skin crawlers.

Roll up the car windows and lock the doors, Blurry Photos is driving you down the lonely road full of skinwalkers! A Navajo legend both creepy and gruesome, skinwalkers are supposed practitioners of evil magic that can transform into animals through the wearing of pelts. Flora and Stecco chase down the tales of these foul humans, including possible origins, abilities, and defenses against them. Are there corpse-defiling people who prey on others through animal form? Or do stories abound as cautionary tales firmly entrenched in a Native American culture? The boys discuss this and more on this episode of the podcast!
