"The Four Feathers" is a bizarre narrative featuring some (probably unintentional) surrealist horror. But that's what you get when you put a four-year-old in charge of things. This episode brought to you by executive producer Christopher, Aarne-Thompson type 106, "Talking Like an Animal " Patreon Our blog Our Youtube channel Carman's Etsy shop

This week's story, "The Bamboo Cutter and the Moon Child," was the inspiration for the movie Princess Kaguya. What we ended up with is not exactly that movie, which is great.

We're back in Grimmland this week with "The Crows." It's a story with a much better story going on in the margins about one woman's total control over a town, and a possible nemesis. How much of that did we add? Folklore changes, it's an oral tradition. Which means it's all canon. This episode brought to you by executive producer Dom, Aarne-Thompson type 1313, "The Man Who Thought Himself Dead" Music from: My Heart Will Go On - Recorder By Candlelight by Matt Mulholland Patreon Our blog...
