About

Chasing Foxfire is a podcast about folklore. It is also about insect collections, national monuments, apple pie recipes, the American Civil War, pine-scented house cleaner, jars full of buttons, cardboard suitcases, riots in Brooklyn, carved wooden chains, jellybeans, wishbones, and cowboy hats. In short, it’s a show about history, with an emphasis on the “story” part of the word. Join us as we look at the tales we tell about ourselves and some of the strange, funny sad, mad, and wonderful ways those tales come to be.
