Witches and Hags: Crash Course World Mythology #39
  Published: 6 days ago


In which Mike Rugnetta teaches you about the stories we tell about witches and hags. It's definitely unfortunate that a lot of social orders have generated stories about evil women with magical powers. Today we're going to look at a few of those stories, and talk a little about why these stories appear, and what they mean.

Unbelievable. I made my nana read me the story of "The Hag and the Long Leather Bag" from some storybook I had as a kid. She hated it because it was so repetitive but it was one of my favorites. It's super weird hearing this story again so many years after forgetting it.

Gotta love how they can't just have a course on old cultures and their perception of witches and Hags without a disclaimer about it being just misogynistic so the rest of there tribe doesn't maul them to death over how ancient peoples saw witches.

I was excited to hear about Slavic myth (especially Baba Yaga!) but was ultimately disappointed that the tale of Baba Yaga and Vasilisa wasn't mentioned :')

before this creates misconceptions on wicca/witches, let me say. witches don't use spells on people, they are not cannibals, they do not summon demons, they have nothing to do with satan, and they do not sacrifice people
