Get Told Vol. VI: Afanasyev’s Tales Retold

July 15, 2019

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.

Episode 21: The Russian Folklorists

June 12, 2019

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.

Episode 20: The Longest of All the Episodes

Episode 20: The Longest of All the Episodes

May 22, 2019

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!
