Avsnitt

  • A story from Spanish folklore of three brothers, a crafting competition, a smelly Trojan parrot, and a lesson that it's never too late to start on the Hero's Journey. I mean, you might end up in jail, but it's still inspiring?

    The creature this week is the Gohonga, a creature that will take your child, educate them, and return them as a forty-year-old

  • Fighting your own fate: it's a theme nearly as old as human civilization. We'll hear two stories of people who both lament their fate...and see that they are profoundly bad at doing anything about it. The first has a sack maker with a one-hit wonder...and a friend who wants to help him change...and who's also a super-rich king. The second is about a man who goes to look for Chance to try to change his own lot in life...and discovers that he might just be his own worst enemy.

    The creatures are the Namahage, from Japan! New Years monsters who want to help you...by scraping the nasty skin off your feet...

  • Two stories of absolutely real and definitely not fake doctors! The first is a Grimm tale where a guy goes to medical school and opens a practice! Never mind that his medical school is just a white coat and a bone saw! The second is a bit more legit with one cure-all elixir that really does cure all...and it may or may not be yule ale.

    The creatures are the buschfrauen! And they will hunt you to the ends of the earth if you mess with their pets or teach you great knitting techniques if you give them a place to stay.
