The Eerie Iceland Podcast: Episode 19 The Grumpy Whale

We are so excited to announce that Eerie Iceland invited us on their thrilling and captivating podcast, which discusses all things Icelandic folklore and ghosts stories, with the amazing hosts Ann and Vanessa. Our founder Becca was excited to get the chance to join them to tell the tale of the old Icelandic folklore which inspired our name and our very own children’s book. This folklore is the tale of Rauðhorði, which translates read headed in English. Like many old stories the origins are a little darker than our modern version of this grumpy whale.
