Peter Muise – Witches and Warlocks of Massachusetts

For over three hundred years, stories of witches, sea serpents, magical folk, and pirates have amazed and terrified residents of Massachusetts’s North Shore. Peter Muise joins us to discuss them, as well as exploring the legends, folklore and weird traditions of mysterious New England.


Author Peter Muise, with degrees in anthropology from Bates College and Brandeis University, has been exploring New England legends, folklore and weird traditions for 20 years. He’s been blogging at New England Folklore since 2008, and he is the author of Legends and Lore of the North Shore, and his recent work has also appeared in Sam Baltrusis’s 13 Most Haunted Crime Scenes Beyond Boston. Peter has appeared as a guest expert on the Travel Channel’s Mysteries at the Museum.
