In night twelve of the 1001 Nights Podcast, we continue chapter three with “The Story of the Porter and the Ladies of Baghdad,” where we meet Cole, an earnest and eager young man who has wandered into the ornate and mysterious home of Erica, Gloria, and the Mistress. A wild and sexy evening begins and several other guests join the affair, including three men who are blind in one eye. One of these men will begin to tell his tale, so we begin “The Story of the First Mendicant.”
“The Story of the Porter and the Ladies of Baghdad” is retold by Marisa Dobson. “The Story of the First Mendicant” is retold by Jason R. Poole. You can learn more about Marisa and Jason on our contributor page.
