Think about a time you told a story.
Maybe you told the story of something that happened to you in your life. Maybe you made up a tale from your imagination. Or perhaps you retold a tale you’d already heard – maybe even on this podcast!
We’re about to meet a character who claims he has no stories to tell. And as a result, he gets swept into an adventure that he hopes will end happily ever after!
Our story is called“Once Upon a Flame.” It was adapted from tales told in the European country of Romania. You’ll also find related, but different, variations from Scotland and Ireland.
Voices in this story include: Ryan Dalusung, Jessica Rau, and William Mapother, whom you grown-ups may recognize from the hit TV series “Lost,” and the movies “Another Earth” and “On Sacred Ground.” Watch for him this fall in the western film, “Outlaws.”
This episode was adapted for Circle Round by Rebecca Sheir and Eric Shimelonis. It was edited by Nora Saks. Original music and sound design is by Eric Shimelonis. Our artist is Sabina Hahn.
