This week’s podcast: A full length episode of The Moth Radio Hour featuring a collection of GrandSLAM stories from around the country! A rabbinical student answers tough questions, a couple crashes the 2008 Obama inauguration, a teacher survives a witch hunt, a tween creates a homemade Halloween costume, a woman plans a sing-along funeral finale, and a man travels to Africa to find a higher purpose.
Here is the third (and last) Just One Story… episode with Jeslyn Wheeless (solo this time) from 7 August 2010.
This one might remind you of either “Cinderella” or “Rumplestiltskin.” Except that this time it’s “The Name,” one of the many stories Diane Wolkstein brought back from Haiti in the 1970’s.
“The Name” is from the book The Magic Orange Tree and Other Haitian Folktales (Random House–Schocken Books, New York, 1978, reprinted 1997).
