As part of our new Daily Briefing now offered on Amazon Echo, we’ll be bringing you a series of “shorts.” These are 2-4 minute inappropriate folktales. You can listen here or enable our daily briefing now. You’ll hear a new short story every few days when you enable this and then ask, “Alexa, play my daily briefing.”
Here’s an Aesop tale of gossip, fear and somewhat overall evilness. Really, no one should hear this story. But you’re going to, anyway.
SSSSomething could go wrong in our fable-filled version of this week’s folktale. The Frogs. The Gods. The Croaking. We’ve told you these stories are not for the lovers of peace and justice. Frogs in a pond clamor for a King. Will he bring salvation or just drain the swamp. Only in your hearing will you know. An adaptation of an Aesop tale by Sean Buvala.
You can listen below. We warned you…those poor frogs. It’s completely inappropriate. It’s gonna be huge and inappropriate.
“A story so full of terror and murder and betrayal that I may not be able to tell you all the words.” The death of dozens, of boars, of brothers. Really, these are not appropriate for anyone, but you are going to listen anyway, aren’t you? We’ve tried to warn you that this classic Grimm fairytale isn’t for the soft-hearted. Be worried about the nightmares the words of Sean Buvala will cause. The death penalty alone may steer you away from stories forever more!!
“It was as if tongue and tendon, muscle and mouth had been restored for the skull began to speak of…” Completely inappropriate but told appropriately by K. Sean Buvala. Treasure, swords, death. Ugg, maybe you should go listen to something nice, not this? But, oh well, there is no telling you, is there? Adapted by Sean from a variety of world folk tales.
