Again, the stepsisters are the real stars of this party. Well. And the dresses XD.
This post is likely to make you drown your sorrows in drink. It sure did for me. And it’s been the SECOND time I’m reading this!
Here be incest! Okay I probably should have been talking about other things, like how pretty the sky, sun, and starry dresses were and how this fairy tale isn’t even half as bad as its historical counterpart. But seriously, though, people are just messed up. So listen to Meg and me talk about it!
Marilag and Meghan are back to discuss a disturbing and almost nauseating French fairy tale: Donkeyskin by Charles Perrault. Mari discusses the true story the fairy tale is perhaps based on, and Meghan keeps her head in her hands as she tries to figure out the moral of the story. They discuss the alternate versions of the story (Grimm Brothers) and realize they’ll probably need alcohol this season to deal with awful fathers and douchebag princes.
Warnings ahead: we have some incestuous relationships this season OH GOD.

We’re looking for your input! Again, it’s about time that we’re finishing up a season and gearing for the next, so while Meg and I are putting together our Donkeyskin retellings, we’d love it if you go and vote for our next podcast retelling. Please and thank you and I will hopefully be back next post with a review or two!
Before we get into the nitty gritty of polling, we just wanted to announce the winning fairy tale to be retold in the last poll: Donkeyskin! Yep, with your help, we now know what to talk about for our third season.
That being said, we are also sending out some invites! Want to chat with us about Donkeyskin retellings? Let us know! This fairy tale is a personal favorite of mine, but that’s probably because deep down I have a sick and twisty soul with a penchant around sick and twisty tales. In any case, there’s going to be lots of fun discussing the issues to be had in this fairy tale. There’s still a couple weeks left before Season 2 comes to a close, so do let us know if you’re willing to make a guest appearance on our fableulous podcast!
Alright, now that we’ve finally locked down…

Because here we ask the important questions! Like “What Turkish and Moroccan place do we hit up next?” and “Do taking archery lessons really make you look sexy?”
If you have answers to these questions, we totally welcome them!
