TW: Child death, suicide

The tale of La Llorona is one that most of us have heard throughout our lives. It is the tale of a woman, who committed the worst act a mother could commit, but where did the story come from? We aim to answer this in today’s episode, by exploring different Llorona origin stories, but before that we share some spooky listener stories.
