Dissecting Dragons

Episode 294: Crying Boys and Unhappy Mummies - More Cursed Objects in Fact and Fiction

October 1, 2021

It's October! 'Tis the season - the spooky season :)

Kicking off this year's run up to Samhain/ Hallowe'en, Jules and Madeleine revisit the subject of cursed objects. Following a trail through history, folklore, mythology and urban legends, the dragons take a look (once more) at what makes an object 'cursed' and how this feeds into the realm of storytelling. On the slab this week - cursed cars, the origins of the word 'taboo', murderous sarcophagus lids and many more.
