Introducing Straparola and his Facetious Nights

What to expect from this podcast

New episodes every weekday (yes, really).

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.
