In night fourteen 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 “The Story of the Second Mendicant” in which a disgraced prince of Hollywood finds love in a strange place and faces supernatural consequences.
“The Story of the Second Mendicant” is retold by Lori Goldstein.
