Vacation is over, work has started, and that means I'm in search of a bit of something to keep me going in my spare time. I have missed you all, and my trip to Disney recently inspired me to cover Beauty and the Beast for Get Grimm and Get Told this round. This week, get a little background on the tale, as well as some inspiration for the story and meet some wonderful new podcasts.
After a brief hiatus for a few summer trips, we're back with Get Told Vol. VI which will wrap up our foray into Russian fairytales for a while. Included in this week's episode are the tales "The Princess Who Never Laughed", "The White Duck", and "Father Frost". Each of these tales comes from the work of Alexander Afanasyev's collection of Russian fairytales and has been retold by yours truly.

This week we're taking a look a few little-known but important men in the world of Russian Literature. Alexander Afanasyev and Vladimir Kropp made major contribution to the study of literature as a whole, but they've also added tremendously to what we know about the stories of Eastern Europe.
This week's podcast partner is Her Moment in History! Find them here:
Good things come to those who wait, folks, and this episode is probably my most favorite of them all. It's noteworthy for a number of reasons. First, it marks 8 months of Get Grimm being out in the world for your listening pleasure. This is also the LONGEST episode I have produced. I went back and forth on whether to make this a two-parter, but the stories were all just so good I had to share them all. So, for episode 20 I bring you four fabulous tales from four of my favorite podcasts!
Baba Yaga, The Narrator: Mythical Podcast
The Grateful Prince, Shawn: Stories of Yore and Yours
Never a Bride, Jennifer: Haunted Happenstance
The Robber Bridegroom, Kate: The Exploress

I decided to end our trek through the Celts with a look at the most popular aspect of Celtic stories, the fairies: who they are and where they came from.
