YMB #41 Why Fairy Tales are Not Optional: A Conversation with Angelina Stanford
Angelina Stanford and I started our conversation with a showdown.
“I’m going to have to limit you to an hour,” I told her.
“You’re going to have a hard time with that,” was her reply.
Boy, was she ever right! I just wanted this conversation about fairy tales to go on and on and on. Fairy tales are a staple of many a childhood — I know I spent hours as a kid reading from Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson. Thanks to the influence of people like Andrew Pudewa I have been sharing original versions of fairy tales with my own kids for years.
But I have never looked at fairy tales in quite this way before — Angelina and I dig deep into the history, the objections, the importance and so much more. I have a new favorite episode of the podcast. You might too! Enjoy.
