What the Folklore is a comedy podcast trying to make sense of nonsensical stories. We deal in strange mythology and folktales from around the globe. We can be found at www.facebook.com/wtfolklore.
Our spooky main course this evening is "The Fox Sister," with a short story titled "The Maiden's Grave" for desert. The desert is necessary to wash the taste of the first one out of your mouth. Because of the ending.

"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? Are they normal, parasitic, or do they got ghosts?

"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.
