Folklore Meaning and Value Discussion

Before watching the Ted Talk, what did you think of when you thought of Folklore? Did you know people study it? Have you ever studied it? After watching, do you think differently? Did McNeill change your mind about what Folklore is, its value, or how it’s being transferred, recorded, or shared? What do you think about studying it?
