In night fifteen of the 1001 Nights Podcast, we continue chapter three: “The Story of the Porter and the Ladies of Baghdad.” 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. We also hear the full tale of “The Envier and the Envied,” which is told by the prince of Hollywood to a jinn in order to convince him to be kind to those who envy.
“The Story of the Second Mendicant” is retold by Lori Goldstein. The story of the “Envier and the Envied” is retold by Meagan Kensil.
