Tripping on Legends Extra: Conversations on Folklore with Dr. Andrea Kitta

Before the dark days of Hurricane Irma, Christopher Balzano was able to speak with Dr. Andrea Kitta, associate professor at East Carolina University.

The conversation hits on different aspects of folklore, from the influences of and influence of Slender Man on modern society, to our modern mental health ideas’ impact on the stories we tell, to how the role of women in American society has changed and what it means.

Ultimately the real question is whether modern day ghost stories and the legends that develop around them are folklore.

Check out these links as an essential resource into looking into legends and to see some of Dr. Kitta’s work:

Episode 31…Bloody Moons and Bloody Buckets

By the light of the Blood Moon, Natalie Crist and Christopher Balzano hit Wachula, Florida, to track down a newer legend that has been traveling the Internet lately.

Is the story of Bloody Bucket Bridge the creation of an overenthusiastic author or a real tale of murder, insanity, and blood?

They venture out to visit the bridge and test the bloody water theory while taking about the history and evolution of the myth.

Spoilers, they trace it back all the way back to its origin.
