What happens when a fairy turns nasty? It becomes something of a poltergeist!

On this episode of the Ghosts and Folklore podcast, explore the dual nature of the Bwbach, the Welsh hobgoblin with ghost-like powers which, on the one hand, was a nice, helpful, happy household fairy but, on the other, could quickly transform into a terrifying phantom.

So terrifying, in fact, that it could scare people away from their homes and, and in some extreme cases, attack them and drive them to an early grave.

Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he goes on a hunt in search of these mischievous creatures on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast.
