In night nineteen 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 Mistress of the House,” in which our main character explains to two special investigators, both guests of the party, about how she inherited and then continued to build her father’s space exploration company. In her story, the mistress meets Vor, a handsome alien from another planet. We will finish this tale and then begin to hear “The Story of the Second of the Three Ladies of Baghdad,” in which another sister of the house tells the special investigators her story.
“The Story of the Mistress of the House” is retold by Maggie Lehrman. “The Story of the Second of the Three Ladies of Baghdad,” is retold by Claire Kiechel. You can learn more about Maggie and Claire on our contributor page.
