|John Griffith Bowen, 1924-2019|
Some of the folk horror news was old so I cut it from the episode. Most notably, Folk Horror Revival have released their massive two-volume tomes on "The Urban Wyrd" which you can find here: http://www.lulu.com/shop/http://www.lulu.com/shop/folk-horror-revival/folk-horrorrevival-urban-wyrd-1-spirits-of-time/paperback/product-24154700.html
Here's "A Photograph" if you haven't seen it. There may be a better version out there.

A little bit of explanation -- Mike and I are often talking about "McGuffins" because early on in our recording (I believe during the Wicker Man episodes) Mike had talked for awhile about something he thought was a McGuffin which in editing I decided wasn't accurate so I removed it. Since then, we often mention whether something is or isn't a McGuffin, particular in regards to John Bowen, who wrote a book called The McGuffin (https://www.amazon.com/McGuffin-John-Bowen/dp/0871130181) which noticeably is about a film reviewer.
And here's the episode (though it's probably Summer where you are, are you sure you wouldn't rather just subscribe on your phone and listen while you take a walk?):
