"If you ever see them, don't be afraid. Talk to them, be nice to them, and they will bring you luck." Kiki defends the honor of the sometimes mischievous Puckwudgies against the brutal onslaught of JC. Kiki takes us on a tour of the great North American legend of the Little People of the Woods with stories from the New England Mohegan tribe, heading down south to the Muskogean tribal legend of the Choctaw and then ending with Pennsylvania's local Algonquian tribal tale from the Lenni Lenape.

Our featured music is from Foghorn Lonesome with the song "Ghosts of the Oak".
