96-Russian Folklore: Cold as Ice

Two vastly different stories of children made from snow. The first is one where the king is called on to solve some dating issues...but then discovers something far colder is at play. The second is the completely real story of a totally legitimately born snow child and what do you mean you don't think he's real? Of course he's real? Well, whatever. You can't prove otherwise so what are you going to do about it?

The creature this week is one that likes to make his home (and his toilet!) out of cinnamon.

    I love this podcast and listen to it all the time! Every time I think “hey these stories have reached weirdness capacity” medieval folklore proves me wrong by either eating someone, marrying their mother, eating a half eaten heart, or odin popping in just to mess things up haha! Anyway I love these stories and it shocks me when a “story you think you know with surprising origins” takes a really REALLY weird turn. I love these. Also, a story to look into (it might fit into ‘fictional’ instead of this one) is the story of Don Quixote, a man in latin america who reads a story about knights and now thinks (possibly hallucinating?) a windmill is a monster, a tree is a tower, ect. and goes on arthurian type quests and randomly attacks said imagined villains. it sounds awesome, but I’m in college so I don’t have the extra time to look into it. Thanks for putting a smile on my face every time I listen

    I always love listening to these every night. It’s always so frustrating when I’ve realized I fell asleep in the middle! But anyway thanks for your hard work and awesome storying telling keep it up! I really loved this story (although at first I was thinking yeah, why did Snegurochka just throw herself into Mizgir?) But Carissa made such a good point about the ending and really wrapped it up. It really is a nice story; although, it is also tender. Looking forward to the next episode!
