Forgotten America

May 25, 2021

In honor of the release of John Hood’s book, Mountain Folk, on June 8th, we are re-releasing our Patrons only Halloween Bonus episode that we recorded with him back in October for all of our listeners to enjoy. Don’t forget to pre-order a copy of John’s book on Amazon and sign up for his Mountain Folk Readers’ Guild newsletter so you can keep up to date with information on new upcoming books in the FolkLore cycle. 


John Hood is a newspaper columnist, historian, and foundation executive with a deep passion for both the American Founding and speculative fiction. The author of critically acclaimed books of economic and political history, Hood has reported on governments from town councils to Congress and written for the Wall Street Journal, Military History, and dozens of other publications. Today he joins Garrett to discuss his upcoming novel, Mountain Folk, folklore across a variety of cultures, conspiracy theories, cryptids, and more!
