The Old Hag - The Terror In The Night! #LivingHeritage #Podcast #FolkloreThursday



Lloyd Pike is a retired teacher whose 32 year teaching career began on remote Pass Island, located off the Connaigre Peninsula on Newfoundland's Southwest coast. On one particular dark night Lloyd experienced a disturbing encounter with the "old hag." Danielle Barron was born and raised in St. John’s, is an avid reader and has had multiple experiences over the past seven or eight years with the old hag. We discuss sleep paralysis and the old hag, Lloyd and Danielle’s experiences with Herself, fortune telling, reading tea leaves, mediums, and other superstitions and folk beliefs.

Loved this episode! I remember when I took Diane G's belief class at MUN -- she told us not to read the book The Terror That Comes in the Night (Hufford) before bed because students reported experiencing the Hag after reading it!
