The North Wind and the West Wind
This week, Carlea shares an Italian story about a breeze who just wants somebody to love. Yeah, anthropomorphic wind is a weird one, we know. But if people insist on gendering the wind, you better believe we're gonna talk about why!

The Goose Girl
This week, Rachael shares a listener suggestion (thanks, Mandy!) about a princess and her scheming maid. It's almost like a non-voluntary Parent Trap situation, but with the addition of a talking horse!
