Show Notes & Summary:

Welcome to Folk Tales Podcast (formerly known as Faerie Tales Podcast) on The Monster Guys Podcast.

This is a (very) modern folk tale depicting a showdown between Jack Frost and The Green Man as they battle for a change of the seasons.

Will Winter keep us in the cold or will Spring push its way through to warm us all up?

Join D.C. McGannon and C. Michael McGannon as they call the “fight” in this epic showdown for the ages!

While you’re listening, how many references to seasonal deities can you recognize? Also, there’s a famous Anime reference and a famous pop culture reference from the 80s … can you pick them out too? (Hint: Answers below …)

Thanks for listening to this light-hearted (totally not serious) story about the changing of the seasons on The Monster Guys Podcast.
