Show Notes for Episode 9 - Slavic Folk Tales

Nov 18, 2018

This week we narrated and discussed folktales from the Slavic peoples of Europe and Asia. The book they are from is called "Fairy Tales of the Slav Peasants and Herdsmen", by Alex Chodsko, Translated and Illustrated by Emily J. Harding in 1896. The book is freely available on Project Gutenburg:

Cocktail of the Week: Moscow Mule. Here is the recipe we used:

-2 oz vodka
-1/2 Rosie’s lime juice
-Stoli ginger beer (or Reeds extra) to taste
-Squeeze in juice from half a lime
-Shake with ice, then add ginger beer
-Serve in copper mug


The 3 stories we narrate and discuss are "The Lost Child", "The Journey to the Sun and the Moon", and "The History of Prince Slugobyl; or, The Invisible Knight". Here are some illustrations from the book!
