Scottish Creatures: Water Horse & Selkies & Nuckelavee, Oh My! | 298
It's time to go back over the pond, and this time we are stopping in Scotland. What cryptids, mythological beasts, and folklore are instore for us this week?? The aquatic kind as we explore all the explore all the things that go SPLASH in the night in the land of bagpipes and haggis. Plus Conspiracy Bot and Flora get along (it's short lived), Brent tried out his Scottish accent (it goes exactly how you think), and things get downright sexy (they don't)! All that and more on the podcast that is in search of a magic bridle for our studio, Hysteria 51
