Goblins
You’ll be goblin this one up!

Crawl out of your caves and holes, it’s time to gab about goblins! Creatures of dubious origins, goblins have a longer history than most fantastic critters, and have evolved as time went on. Current culture paints them as terrible, vicious little things, but has that always been the case? Flora and Stecco delve deep to discuss where they came from, how they’ve evolved, and what characteristics have remained through the years. Their influence on pop culture, literature, and folklore is widespread, and the boys find stories and news to pass along. Get out your flax seeds and colanders, this episode is up to no good!
