Superstitions come up every now and then during Outlander. Want to know more about them? There’s a great podcast for during Droughtlander.

Whether it’s touching horseshoes or the story of changelings, there are all types of superstitions that come up in the world of Outlander. Both the books and show offer a look into the various superstitions, some of which even Jamie believes a little of.

It’s understandable why people believe in the various superstitions and legends in the 18th century. There wasn’t the access to information we have now, and the understanding of the medical and physical world and space weren’t even known back then. Not in the way we understand them now.

Superstitions are now just fascinating topics. We look at how they got started to try to understand why people believed in them—and why we still believe some of them even today. There are some great podcasts that go into them, and we’re suggesting one for you to start listening to right now to get through a bit more of Droughtlander.

Listen to Superstitions

The podcast is aptly named. Superstitions is all about the various lore and beliefs from the past. Throughout October, there was a focus on witches. The episodes were part of the “Season of the Witch” collection. However, there are stories from around the world.

You’ll get to learn more about why you shouldn’t whistle on a ship, and why we say “bless you” when someone sneezes. Ever wondered why people say not to open umbrellas indoors? What about why we “knock on wood?”

There are things we do today without really understanding where the stories came from. We don’t even realize that some of them are even based in culture because we were just brought up to say or do things. Well, now it’s time to find out.
