On our annual Halloween episode, it's stories of a monstrous creature who stalks the north woods...and how they might be sitting right next to you.
The creature is a vampire that's super scary...only it can't actually walk...and more so bounces everywhere...and hates messy rooms.

It gets kind of brutal this week, with a couple lightly-graphic depictions of cannibalism and murder.
I read somewhere that stories are considered wealth by some native American cultures. Like an elevated concept of intellectual property. Now, “I read somewhere” isn’t a very creditable way to start a statement, and I certainly can’t name any specific cultures, or even guess whether the Cree are among them. But it’s something to think about. By simply telling some native American stories, a person might be robbing those stories’ rightful owners.
Joejoebeans’s points are also worth thinking about. They may or may not apply in a given situation. But failing to consider those issues at all is a real problem many people have, whereas writing a constructive comment about them like that is no problem at all and doesn’t deserve to be called ridiculous and dismissed out of hand. Yes, Jason Weiser is a careful and respectful storyteller, but the assumption of public domain Jeff Bentley made–a concept originating in Roman law–suggests to me that viewers of this page could benefit from a fourth viewpoint.
Anyway, I’d like to know who the “native American elder” cited at the end of the episode was. (Quotation marks not meant to express skepticism of any kind, just, you know, quotation. And maybe a smidge of concern that, as in so -many- cases of reference to native American cultures and individuals, the man went unnamed.)
Yeah great podcast Jason! I am a descendant of a two different populations who’s cultural history has been annihilated completely. If only someone would’ve told my people’s stories I could enjoy them now.
Doing what you do keeps these stories alive and gives identity to those who are forgotten yet still present, thank you 🙏
Hello, I love the show. And fictional as well.
I’m struck with this latest show and the politics of sharing a story. Are you Cree? Did you ask permission from Cree councils to share this story? Which ones?
Assuming you are not Cree, and in fact are a settler, I will ask that you please practice critical thought when it comes to sharing and using and capitalizing on the stories that have been stolen from, or are created about the people that are still disenfranchised and oppressed by our (I’m a settler too) presence. Or if you did think this through please share with us what your thoughts and process is. Use your platform you have deservedly crafted and share with us what it means to you as a settler to share a story about/ from indigenous folks.
For many victims of hate and crime, let alone genocide, internalized and generational oppression, and displacement and occupation.
What a victim has left is their story their truth. For settler culture to toil with the truth of others we oppress is a very delicate thing that deserves respect, transparency and most importantly consent.
Joejoebeans is ridiculous. This show treats its subject matter and cultures with great respect. Stories that have circulated for hundreds of years are for the public domain to tell. Keep doing what you’re doing Jason!
