    We're finally reading "East of the Sun West of the Moon." For a foundational fairy tale, it's got a lot of problems. This story makes a lot more sense when you think of it as a reality show run by a troll in the background. Just trust us, you'll see it by the end.

    It's the big One-Zero-Zero! 100(ish) fairy tales have come and gone, and we're seriously worried that our insanity detectors are tragically miscalibrated at this point, as we've been slowly lead to believe that the insane is normal.

    Episode 66: Here Come the Hot Dogs, Kobayashi! (Barn to be Owl)

    This is our first episode after The Move (tm) so we're still a little out of it, which led us to some interesting places in our discussion. Our story this week, "The Flying Ship," concerns a man who basically wanders onto a cool flying airship, and gets a bunch of weirdos to come along for the ride.

    Episode 44: Drop Bear Buffet

    On an infinite plane, where every story arc forms a line, they all have to cross somewhere. This week's story is the spot where Welsh Mythology crosses paths with Space Jam 2, the plot of which we have assuredly figured out: featuring Larry Bird as a time-traveling, birth-sensing, horse-collector. This week we read "The Legend of Rhiannon and Pwyll."
