Description

This weekend is St. Patrick's Day, and that got me thinking about how closely related Newfoundland and Ireland are. Our flags, our music, our accents, our looks, our beliefs, even the look of the land are so similar, that Irish author Tim Pat Coogan has said “Newfoundland is the most Irish place in the world outside of Ireland. Today I'm going to talk about those similarities and the effect of our Irish ancestors on our province.

Episode 25 - The Balcony by Keith Daniels - Happy Halloween, Newfoundland
Hello, and welcome back to NewfoundPod, a bite-sized podcast about Newfoundland. I'm your host, Debbie Wiseman, and this is episode 25 – Happy Halloween!Yes, it's my favourite time of year again. Last year, I shared with you some spooky folk tales from Newfoundland. This year, I'll be doing that again, but this week, I wanted to do something a little different. This episode, I am going to read a spooky story written by a Newfoundland author. His name is Keith Daniels and he's written a few short and scary stories. Kids these days call them creepypastas, but I really don't like that word. I just call them scary stories. I'm old. Keith's stories take place in Newfoundland. This one ties into another one I heard being narrated recently, and I will link that telling, along with Keith's website, KeithDanielsAuthor.Wordpress.com, on the blog, and you can read more of his stories there. His work is fantastic and I hope I can do this story justice. Just a warning. This story contains some colourful language. I was going to ask permission from Keith to change it so I could maintain my clean rating, but I don't really feel comfortable asking an author if I can change their words. So I'm leaving it in. I'll be cursing a few times, so if you aren't okay with that, please stop listening and come back next week. But I hope you do stay and give it a chance. I know some of you listen with kids so I wanted to include the warning.Credits:Author Keith Daniels http://KDanielsAuthor.Wordpress.comEchoes of Time v2 by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1300030Artist: http://incompetech.com/Club Seamus by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)Source: http://incompetech.com/music/royalty-free/index.html?isrc=USUAN1800012Artist: http://incompetech.com/Thanks so much for listening today.
