Let’s Play “Pretend”

Stories since the beginning of time have been thrilling us by having characters take on false identities. In this episode we look at one legendary song and two folktales that show us the GOOD and BAD consequences of pretending to be someone we’re not. Major thanks to Christopher Wallace, Aaron Shepard, and O. Henry for their contribution to the legacy of stories.
