Well guys, it's official: I'm back. I've been wanting to come back for a long time, but timing has just not been right. However, that's about to change. Now that I've had my time free up again and I am able to prioritize putting out new episodes, I'm really excited to come back with a brand new season and a brand new topic. This new season is going to be all about the ancient Greeks. And I guess by association the ancient Romans.
Besides the kilts, there hasn't been a group as influential on our storytelling in the western world quite like the ancient Greeks and Romans. Play rights, poets, moviemakers, storytellers, across generations and time all seem to come back to these tails. So come with me, consult your soothsayer, look for signs from the gods as we journey back to Ancient Greece.

Out of all of the stories we've retold on the show, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens has to be one of the most well-loved, retold stories in Western literature. There seems to be a new release in some form every year, and it happens to be one of my favorite stories. Even though the show has bene on a bit of a hiatus for the last few months, I didn't want to let the Christmas season pass without sharing this story with you all again.
Thank you to all of the pod family members who have lent voices, time, talent, and research to this particular production. I know I learned a lot putting this together and I'm excited to share the whole thing with you once more.

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.

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!
