What to expect from this podcast
A daily podcast featuring a new chapter in the currently featured book. It's like an audio book, but with community and a much harder to find selection of texts. Here's how it works: Episode are delivered every day, Monday through Friday. Every now and then, an anthology of episodes will be compiled into an audio book and delivered to members at no additional charge. During the podcast, you'll have access to AMA sessions with the host (Tanner) so you can ask questions about the text, get clarification, correct us (!), or just participate in our monthly Zoom hangouts.
[Daily episodes begin August 10th, 2020] The Facetious Nights of Straparola, also known as The Nights of Straparola, is a four-volume collection of 75 stories by Italian author and fairy-tale collector Giovanni Francesco Straparola. Modeled after Boccaccio's Decameron, it hast often being called the first European storybook to contain fairy-tales; it would influence later fairy-tale authors like Charles Perrault and Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm. Episodes are released every weekday until all 75 stories are completed, then a final compiled audio book will be provided to subscribers.
