Introducing… Folklorica! A podcast about stories hosted by two people who really like hearing, reading and even telling, you guessed it, stories. We’re your hosts Clayton Steacker and Maggie Boles. We are amateur ethnographers. Gifted googlers. We travel the world (metaphorically because we don’t really have money) and bring back folk tales and legends from far and wide. Have you ever heard the story of the legless knight? Well get ready for that and more! We read, we learn, we discuss, and of course, we struggle to pronounce names. But the important thing is WE TRY. Join us every Thursday for Folklorica! From Straw Hut Media

Dionysus

The Girl Without Hands

The Girl Without Hands is one of those Brothers Grimm fairytales that didn’t make the cut for Disney adaptations. We honestly don’t understand why.
