In night seventeen 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 Third Mendicant” in which a king and his superstitious fleet of ships come across loadstone and all but the king abandon ship. He is a nice and just king who would never kill a teenager. We also hear the beginning of “The Story of the Mistress of the House,” which takes place in space.
“The Story of the Third Mendicant” is told by Jaclyn Backhaus. “The Story of the Mistress of the House” is told by Maggie Lehrman. You can learn more about Maggie and Jaclyn on our contributor page.
