Weird World Weekly #61 – The Wendigo


Every culture on Earth has their stories, handed down from generation to generation, about creatures that stalk the living.  An example of this are the ghouls, which we talked about on previously on this podcast.  Another though is the Wendigo, which originates from the native peoples of North America.

On this episode of Weird World Weekly, Matt and Dave will discuss it’s characteristics, history and why people feared it in the past, and may still to this day!
