In this episode, Simona and Alan are joined by three wonderful storytellers to share spooky tales from around the world.
David Heathfield shares a story about a miser, Despoina Aristeidou shares a Jack tale with a spooky encounter, Alan shares a story about something that happened to his grandfather when he was young, Manuela Kelly Calzini shares a story about the quayside selkie and Simona shares a story about an Italian ogre.
A Cornucopia of Tales and Tellers is a passion project brought to you by English teachers Alan and Simona, who want to create a compilation - or cornucopia if you will - of stories from all around the world and by as many tellers from around the world as possible. So grab a cup of tea, chai, water or uisce beatha, relax and enjoy hearing tales that have been handed down generations, or even ones that were dreamt up yesterday! Music by Purple Planet.
