In night thirteen of the 1001 Nights Podcast, we continue chapter three with “The Story of the Porter and the Ladies of Baghdad.” We pick up at the strange and mysterious home of Erica, Gloria, and the Mistress. During a wild evening affair, several unexpected guests arrive at their house including three men who are blind in one eye and have a story to tell. Tonight we hear more of their stories, finishing “The Story of the First Mendicant” and beginning “The Story of the Second 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 and “The Story of the Second Mendicant” is retold by Lori Goldstein.
