The Skogsra


Christoffer calls in from Sweden and tells about a strange sighting he had of a Skogsra or wood-wife. We also talk about other Swedish folklore including trolls, house gnomes, changelings, and goatman. James stops by as well to tell of his very recent sighting of something very weird. Is it related to the Skogsra?
