Unofficial Britain’s Gareth E. Rees in conversation with Irish storyteller Helena Byrne and place writer Marcel Krueger. They discuss the importance of folklore in modern times; the bizarre stories generated by urban environments and the differences (and similarities) between contemporary Irish and British folklore.
Near the end of the talk, they are interrupted by a mischievous digital prankster sprite who tries to knock them off their stride with erotic interjections. Not to be missed.
