Supplemental #04 – The True Origin of “Alice”
25:52
  The origin story of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, the story people tend to hear, about Lewis Carroll and Alice Liddell rowing up the river while in improvises a story to entertain her is only half the story.

1:53:36
In the final episode of the Aladdin Series, we pick up where we left off in episode 5b, with Disney’s Aladdin trying to repair the damage of his first attempt to court Princess Jasmine, and Aladdin from the “One Thousand and One Nights” sabotaging Princess Badr Al-Badur’s marriage to the son of the Sultan’s grand […]

05b – Aladdin Part 2
1:00:41
In our last episode, we left both Disney’s Aladdin and Shahdazad’s Aladdin sealed within a deep treasure trove. Disney called it The Cave of Wonders, and in the One Thousand and One Nights it is the Cave of Treasure. To all appearances, that should’ve been the end of the story and there shouldn’t have been […]

Supplemental #02 – Djinn
39:25
I tried to squeeze the whole subject of Jinn into Aladdin Part 2, but to do so would kill the momentum of the Aladdin story, so I decided this should be another supplemental. And since you all like the first supplemental about Shahadazad so much, supplemental episodes may become a regular thing. When you do […]

04a – Mulan Part 1
50:17
The story of Mulan is one of the most mundane of all Chinese folktales. In Ancient China, with folklore rife with magic, Gods, Demons, Dragons and all kinds of supernatural influences, it was the plausibility of Mulan that made it such a compelling story. Though her story has changed through the centuries, its core elements […]
