Think about what winters are like where you live. Are they chilly and snowy? Or are temperatures more moderate?

Today’s story takes place in a spot where winters are intense – thanks in part to a supernatural spirit with a very cold shoulder!

Today our story is called “The Blizzard Wizard.” Versions of this tale have been told among the indigenous peoples of far north Siberia, near the Arctic Ocean.

Voices in this episode include: Amy Brentano, Joe Hernandez, Erika Rose, and Vivien Lyra Blair, who stars as young Princess Leia in the Disney+ Star Wars series “Obi-Wan Kenobi.” Grown-ups, you can see Vivien in the new feature film, “The Boogeyman.”

This episode was adapted for Circle Round by Rebecca Sheir. It was edited by Nora Saks. Original music and sound design is by Eric Shimelonis. Our artist is Sabina Hahn.
