"The Gold Teeth" is our second entry in Spooklore 2018, featuring a soundtrack by everyone's favorite late 90s/early 2000s band Mouthsmash! What's the deal with those gold teeth anyway?

We're kicking off What the Spooklore with "the Peony Lantern" from Japan. How spooky is it? Our old friend the Spooktrolyzer is back to help us figure that out, but we'll say this: there are probably more ghosts than there really NEED to be.

The phrase "crime tokens" in the new Spiderman game is a little misleading. What should it mean? Obviously they're something that criminals give to other criminals to show appreciate for their crime skills. Patreon Our website Our Youtube channel Carman's Etsy shop

"Jack and His Master" is an old-fashioned fairy tale about some dum-dums who get into a mess they could have avoided. If any of them had just done the game theory (pushes glasses up nose) they would have known better. Editor's note: there's about a minute of audio that sounds a bit different, this was recorded later because we needed to make sure we had some facts straight.

"The Story of a Scorpion Who Was the Son of Adam" is what we're reading this week, with periodic interruptions of Very Good Ideas that the right people on Twitter needed to know about immediately. The story itself is the result of someone really crunching to make a deadline.

We're finishing up "The Goddess of Mercy: a Biography of the Bodhisattva" this week, though honestly, we probably could have just called it last week and it would have been fine. Tiger makes a comeback, which gives us something to hang on to throughout the many twists and turns of this story. Patreon Our website Our Youtube channel Carman's Etsy shop

Hans Christian Andersen's "Garden of Paradise" is another one of those stories that fundamentally changes our overly tangled web of fairy tale interconnectedness.

"The Three Languages" is a Grimm story that needs a lot of fixing up. Sure there's a super weird Pope ceremony at the end, but what happened to the dogs and frogs? It's a story that demands some grasping at straws to fill in the gaps.

"A Tale of Two Brothers" just has too much going on, and not enough of it is focused on the children's card game at the center of the conflict. There's a lot that needs to be cut away from this story, and that leaves a lot of room for other, better stuff to fill it back up.
