101-Fairy Tales: Three Dog Night

What do you do if an obvious witch stops you on the road and asks a favor? Keep walking, right? Well, for the first time in possibly the entirety of this podcast, here's an example of someone speaking to an evil-looking witch in the dark forest and it actually working out. It's the story of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Tinderbox".

Our second story is from Vietnam, and a poor family, a smart child, an evil moneylender, and a fly conspire to cause some legal difficulties.

Very light talk of sexual assault, some light massacring, and the creature of the week is a mummified dog head. There is some pretty disturbing animal abuse in the creature of the week section, too.

    I’m still trying to get caught up on old episodes (almost there!) and I just listened to this one today. The story about the money lender from Vietnam was really interesting. I’ve actually had a somewhat similar situation to the ending (catching someone in a lie).

    My church’s youth choir used to go on tour every summer. My senior year of high school I was considered along the lines of a junior chaperone. One hotel that we stayed at had some construction work being done on the outside of the building. I had some younger girls in my room who were friends with the younger boys next-door. The boys called our room to brag about one of the guys who had climbed out the window onto the scaffolding. The girls were worried about him but didn’t want the boys to be mad at them for telling a chaperone. I didn’t care if they were mad at me or not so I went across the hall and got one of the adults. The way she got him to confess was perfect. She knocked on the door and he climbed back inside before they opened it. She called his name and in her best “mom voice” asked if she had just seen him standing on the scaffolding. Before he thought about it he said “No ma’am I was sitting!“ I still laugh about it to this day!
