After an unplanned hiatus, we're back! Snow White is one of the most recognized fairy tale stories and characters but, as usual, not many people are familiar with the Grimm version. Part one centers around Archetypal Evil and how it taints those who come into contact with it. The story is from Household Tales by Brothers Grimm and is read starting at 6:24 and ending at 24:55. Adina also recommends: The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales (Pantheon Fairy Tale And Folklore Library). If attempting to purchase this, be sure it says, "with Padraic Colum (intro) and Joseph Campbell (commentary) and James Scharl (illustr)". Amazon considers all versions to be the same book, so you could accidentally buy a copy without those key elements. Shadow and Evil in Fairy Tales. Written by Marie-Louise von Franz. Our intro/outro music is from Antoni Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, performed by John Harrison with the Wichita State University Chamber Players.

The Friday Newsletter |  Daily Gardener Community   Historical Events 1771 Birth of Xavier Bichat ("bee'shah"), French anatomist and pathologist. Remembered as the father of modern histology, or the study of tissues. In his work, Xavier did not use a microscope and still discovered 21 distinct types of tissues in the human body. His work accelerated and transformed the way doctors understood disease. Sadly, Xavier died accidentally in his early thirties in 1802 after falling down the steps of his hospital. Today, Xavier Bichat's name is one of the 72 names inscribed on the Eiffel Tower. A lover of nature, Xavier's work was grounded in observations from the natural world. Charles Darwin quoted Xavier in his book The Descent of Man. The great botanist Bichat long ago said, if everyone were cast in the same mould, there would be no such thing as beauty.  If all our women were to become as beautiful as the Venus de' Medici, we should for a time be charmed; but we should soon wish for variety; and as soon as we had obtained variety, we should wish to see certain characteristics in our women a little exaggerated beyond the then existing common standard.   The beauty of nature and the secret to that beauty is in nature's diversity and the ephemeral nature of all things - the seasons, flowers, the weather, etc., Xavier also wrote, Life is the sum of forces resisting death.   1776 Birth of Henri Dutrochet, French physician, botanist, and physiologist. After studying the movement of sap in plants in his home laboratory, Henri discovered and named osmosis. Henri shared his discovery with the Paris Academy of Sciences on October 30th, 1826. Like the cells in our human bodies, plants don't drink water; they absorb it through osmosis. Henri also figured out that a plant's green pigment, chlorophyll, is essential to how plants take up carbon dioxide. Hence, photosynthesis could not happen without chlorophyll. It turns out chlorophyll helps plants gather energy from light. And if you've ever asked yourself why plants are green, the answer is chlorophyll. Since it reflects green light, chlorophyll makes the plant appear green. As for Henri, he was a true pioneer in plant research. He was the first to examine plant respiration, light sensitivity, and geotropism (How the plant responds to gravity, i.e., roots grow down to the ground.) Geotropism can be confusing at first, but I think of it this way: The upward growth of plants - fighting against gravity - is called negative geotropism, and the downward growth of roots, growing with gravity, is called positive geotropism. And there's a tiny part of the plant at the very end of the root that responds to positive geotropism, and it's called the root cap. So, what makes the roots grow downward? The small but mighty root cap - responds to positive geotropism.   1907 Birth of Astrid Lindgren, Swedish writer of fiction and screenplays. Astrid is remembered for several children's book series, including Pippi Longstocking. She wrote more than 30 books for children and has sold 165 million copies. In January 2017, Astrid's prolific work made her the fourth most translated children's author trailing Enid Blyton, Hans Christian Andersen, and the Brothers Grimm. Astrid was a flower lover. In her book, Mio, My Son, Astrid wrote, He turned to the Master Rose Gardener and said something even more peculiar, "I enjoy the birds singing. I enjoy the music of the silver poplars." In her book, Most Beloved Sister, Astrid wrote, Then the flowers stopped singing and the trees stopped playing, and I could no longer hear the brook's melody.  "Most Beloved Sister," said YlvaLi. "When Salikon's roses wither, then I will be dead.'   And in Astrid's story Bullarbyn, the maid Agda tells a group of girls that if on Midsummer night, they climb over nine fences and pick nine different flowers in complete silence, without speaking a single word, and then return home to put the flowers under their pillow, they will dream of their future husband. On Social Media, there's a marvelous photograph of Astrid climbing a pine tree. In the photo, Astrid is 67 years old. She apparently climbed the tree in her front yard after being dared by her 80-year-old friend Elsa. Astrid later quipped, There's nothing in the Ten Commandments forbidding old ladies to climb trees, is there?   Astrid once wrote, In our unknown past we might have been creatures swinging from branch to branch, living in trees.  Perhaps in the deepest depths of our wandering souls we long to return there...  perhaps it is pure homesickness that makes us write poems and songs of the trees...   1908 Birth of Harrison Salisbury, American journalist. After World War II, Harrison became the first regular New York Times correspondent in Moscow. He went on to win a Pulitzer Prize for his work.   Harrison once wrote, My favorite word is 'pumpkin.' You are a pumpkin. Or you are not. I am.   Grow That Garden Library™ Book Recommendation The Heirloom Gardener by John Forti This book came out in 2021, and the subtitle is Traditional Plants and Skills for the Modern World. "Part essay collection, part gardening guide, The Heirloom Gardener encourages readers to embrace heirloom seeds and traditions, serving as a well-needed reminder to slow down and reconnect with nature."  - Modern Farmer   The publisher writes: In The Heirloom Gardener, John Forti celebrates gardening as a craft and shares the lore and traditional practices that link us with our environment and with each other. Charmingly illustrated and brimming with wisdom, this guide will inspire you to slow down, recharge, and reconnect.   In the preface, John shares how he came to be a gardener. Of his early experience, he wrote: Work at a garden center in my teens further ignited my interest in horticulture; it also helped me save up enough money to travel to Japan as an exchange student, far from my river and deep pine woods. There I saw the Japanese veneration of the land made manifest in regional artisanal foods, historic preservation, and the Zen-like devotion to the craft of gardening, the art of placing a single stone in a garden wall or a budding branch in an ikebana arrangement. I witnessed firsthand how much we are all shaped by place. When I returned, I explored garden history and ethnobotany with deep interest.   John introduces the art and practice of heirloom gardening this way: Things like an old rhubarb patch, the remnants of an orchard, or a lichen-covered stone wall are talismans that help us read the landscapes we inherited. Through them, we catch a glimpse of how someone applied craftsmanship and the environmental arts to live in accord with nature. As heirloom gardeners in our shared backyard, we remember the work our hands were born to do, intuitively, like a bird follows its migratory path or a newly hatched turtle scrambles to the sea. I may be a romantic, but I do not romanticize the past. In my work as a garden historian and herbalist, I am not blind to the shortcomings, biases, and errors of earlier times, but I also see families connected to seeds and soil, people connected to place, and a deep value for living in concert with our environment. This book is an alphabetical collection of brief essays and artisanal images, each a seed, a way in to a different element of an heirloom gardening lifestyle; I see each entry as a point of connectivity-hand to hand, ancestor to descendant, seed to table. It's a love poem to the earth... a guidepost for gardeners... who want to cultivate common ground and craft new possibilities from local landscapes.   Here is a sample entry regarding Angelica; John writes, A majestic herb is Angelica archangelica, cultivated through the ages for its flavor, fragrance, and stately beauty.  In the garden, the hollow and resinous stems of this regal herb, covered in broad leaves, can easily tower three to five feet, and the enormous flower umbels rise up to seven feet toward the heavens - perhaps one of the reasons that the plant was dedicated to the archangels in Medieval times.  Early each spring in centuries past, Europeans and Colonial Americans would harvest the tender stalks and simmer them in a simple syrup; eventually the stalks would become the translucent light green of sea glass, and the syrup would take on the color and herbaceous balsam flavor so unique to angelica.  As lovers of spring have done long since, I repeat the process and candy the stalks until they become tender; I then either slice the stems lengthwise, into short segments, or braid the long strands together before rolling them in finely ground sugar...They are excellent served like membrillo or marmalade with cheese and dessert platters... Like an herbal equivalent to candied ginger, candied angelica was often served as digestive at the end of feasts. Throughout the growing season, but especially in spring and summer, I enjoy serving gin and tonics and other cocktails with straws made from thinner angelica stems. I also save the syrup that results from the candying process; it's an amazing herbal elixir to add into cocktails or serve atop vanilla ice cream.   John's book is 264 pages of marvelous garden essays and beautiful botanical art about traditional plants and skills for the modern gardener. You can get a copy of The Heirloom Gardener by John Forti and support the show using the Amazon link in today's show notes for around $8.   Botanic Spark 1805 Birth of Robert Buist (botanist) is born. Robert Buist came to America from Edinburgh "Edinburgh," where his dad was a professional gardener. He had trained at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and immigrated to Philadelphia when he was 23. One of his first jobs was working for a wealthy Philadelphia businessman named Henry Pratt, who had a tremendous summer estate named Lemon Hill. At the time, Lemon Hill was regarded as having one of the most beautiful gardens in the United States. Eventually, Buist bought the history Bernard McMahon nursery - one of the oldest nurseries in the country and the nursery that supplied plants to President Thomas Jefferson. Today, on the spot where the nursery used to be, is a large old Sophora tree known as the Buist Sophora. The tree was brought to the United States from France, and its origin can be traced to China. In addition to the nursery, Buist grew his company to include a seed division and a greenhouse. In 1825, the plant explorer Joel Poinsett sent some specimens of a plant he discovered in Mexico home to Charleston. Buist heard about the plant, bought himself one, and began growing it. Buist named it Euphorbia poinsettia since the plant had a milky white sap like other Euphorbias. The red bracts of the plant were so unusual and surprising to Robert that he wrote that the Poinsettia was "truly the most magnificent of all the tropical plants we have ever seen." Of course, Robert gave his friend and fellow Scot, the botanist James McNab a poinsettia when he visited in 1834. McNab brought the plant back to Scotland and gave it to the head of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Robert Graham. Graham promptly changed the botanical name of the plant to Poinsettia pulcherrima - a move that greatly upset Robert Buist for the rest of his life. And here's a fun little side note about Robert Buist; his gardening books were very popular. When Stonewall Jackson discovered gardening in middle age, he relied heavily on Robert Buist's book The Family Kitchen Gardener: Containing Plain and Accurate Descriptions of All the Different Species and Varieties of Culinary Vegetables, which became Jackson's gardening bible, and he wrote little notes in the margins as he worked his way through the guide. Like most gardeners still do today, he'd write, "Plant this" or "Try this" in the margins next to the plants he wanted to try the following year.   Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener And remember: For a happy, healthy life, garden every day.

Happy Halloween! It's officially the spookiest day of the year, and in celebration, we're providing the second part of "Disturbing Fairy Tales from The Brothers Grimm!" Whether you believe Halloween to be an evil holiday or not, the fact that it's celebrated indicates how similar it is, at its core, to other popular holidays. Every holiday relies upon society's ability to tell and fascination with what we believe to be relevant and entertaining stories. The power that a stories hold on our minds is, in many ways, fascinating and terrifying. In part one of this two-part series, we discussed the fairy tales of Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and Pinocchio. In this episode, the Wolf, Baewolf, and The Sloth discuss the fascinatingly disturbing fairy tales of The Little Mermaid, Beauty and The Beast, and Hansel and Gretel. Listener discretion is advised! If you're in the mood for some spooks, make sure to tune in to episode 71 of the Wolf and Bull! Tune in every week for new episodes! If you'd like to support our podcast directly, you can do so here.

The world is hauntingly magical, full of wonders, spectacularly spooky stories, and the mysterious unknown. For as much as we claim, we don't know nearly as much as we think that we do. Despite advancements in technology and society, one thing remains true; we all appreciate a good story. Spooky season. Samhain. Halloween. Pagan season. Whatever you proclaim this time of year to be (specifically the end of October), we're entering into, once again, the time of year when we appreciate a culmination of good "stories". Disturbing stories, unfortunately, happen to be at the forefront of most of our minds at this time of year, and it adds a "spookiness" to the ordinary. Oddly enough, many of the fairy tales that we grew up with as kids are not as innocent and happy as we may believe them to be. That's why, for part one of this Halloween-Esque episode, (officially episode 70!) we've decided to introduce a new guest, The Sloth, to discuss The Brothers Grimm and the "grim" origin of their fairy tales collection. We'll cover the history of The Brothers Grimm and the tales of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White. Additionally, we also discuss the strange, out-of-body experience, that is the story of Pinocchio. We do hope you join us and we can't wait to share part two with you on Halloween!

And: Anna Beecher first encountered the Brothers Grimm's fairy tale, The Boy Who Went Forth to Learn to Shudder, as a young kid and was thoroughly frightened. The story haunted her for years and in 2017 she wrote Skin of the Teeth, a play based on that same Grimm's fairy tale. Later in the show: Halloween and Scream are some of the most blood-curdling, panic-inducing slasher movies. But they're more than just jump-scares and gore. Jennifer McLawhorn says slasher movies open a window into important social anxieties around gender. Plus: If you can believe it, the first horror movies had no sound. Classics like Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari came out in the 1920's, during the silent film era. Jenny Taylor says the roots of the horror movie genre can be traced back to Germany's Weimar Republic.

How long do you really want to live? In this episode I am pondering the history of humanity's quest for ever-longer lifespans, and specifically, humanity's quest for the so-called "elixir of life" – a concoction which will grant immortality (or at the very least, good health) to anyone who drinks it. What exactly is the elixir of life, as we've come to understand and view it throughout history? How have human beings attempted to produce the elixir over the centuries? What efforts are we still making today to find easy cure-alls and extend our lives as much as possible? And critically, do we really want to live forever, or do we just think that we do? I provide some answers to these questions, look at some portrayals of the elixir of life in horror entertainment, and bring you a classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale about brothers questing for a life-giving elixir. Why discuss humanity's so-far futile efforts to make a miracle potion that cures all disease and grants life everlasting? Because our obsession with fending off death, and all the things we've tried to accomplish that, are odd, fascinating, and definitely Creeptastic! See visuals for this episode on Instagram!

The life of composer Robot Koch is a study in contrasts. Raised in the same area of Germany as the Brothers Grimm — with its foggy forests and medieval castles — he now lives among the sunny splendor of Los Angeles. And although Koch leads a monk-like spiritual practice of yoga, meditation, and pranayama breathwork, he relies on digital technologies to produce the lush, atmospheric sounds of his electronic music. That unique perspective — balancing ancient tradition with modern innovation, spirituality with science — lies at the heart of Koch's new album, The Next Billion Years (Foam and Sand Reworks). An ambient reimagining of the orchestral songs Koch originally released in 2020, the album is a testament to Koch's evolution as an artist and the many ways we can engage with music. "I like to experience all aspects of how sound can be portrayed and presented, and let the audience experience it in different ways," he says on the latest episode of the Classical Post podcast. "Be it with eyes closed listening to a Dolby Atmos mix on headphones, or at a planetarium show, or in a philharmonic venue, I think there's not just one way music can be or should be experienced." Koch's approach to making music is clearly resonating with listeners across the globe. His music has been streamed more than 75 million times and can be heard on numerous films and television shows — including Netflix's hit series You, ABC's How to Get Away With Murder, and Amazon's We Children from Bahnhof Zoo. In this discussion, we talk more about the new album, and how discovering a speech by the French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau on a second-hand cassette tape inspired him to create an album exploring the long-term future of humanity. Plus, Koch shares how his daily meditation practice makes him feel like he gets to live two days in one, his fascination with quantum physics and cosmic consciousness, and his favorite breakfast spot in New York City's East Village.

A critical history of the roots of Nazi occultism and its continuing influence• Explores the occult influences on various Nazi figures, including Adolf Hitler, Albert Speer, Rudolf Hess, Alfred Rosenberg, and Heinrich Himmler• Examines the foundations of the movement laid in the 19th century and continuing in the early 20th century• Explains the rites and runology of National Socialism, the occult dimensions of Nazi science, and how many of the sensationalist descriptions of Nazi “Satanic” practices were initiated by Church propaganda after the warIn this comprehensive examination of Nazi occultism, Stephen E. Flowers, Ph.D., offers a critical history and analysis of the occult and esoteric streams of thought active in the Third Reich and the growth of occult Nazism at work in movements today.Sharing the culmination of five decades of research into primary and secondary sources, many in the original German, Flowers looks at the symbolic, occult, scientific, and magical traditions that became the foundations from which the Nazi movement would grow. He details the influences of Theosophy, Volkism, and the work of the Brothers Grimm as well as the impact of scientific culture of the time. Looking at the early 20th century, he describes the impact of Guido von List, Lanz von Liebenfels, Rudolf von Sebottendorf, Friedrich Hielscher, and others.Examining the period after the Nazi Party was established in 1919, and more especially after it took power in 1933, Flowers explores the occult influences on key Nazi figures, including Adolf Hitler, Albert Speer, Rudolf Hess, and Heinrich Himmler. He analyzes Hitler's usually missed references to magical techniques in Mein Kampf, revealing his adoption of occult methods for creating a large body of supporters and shaping the thoughts of the masses. Flowers also explains the rites and runology of National Socialism, the occult dimensions of Nazi science, and the blossoming of Nazi Christianity. Concluding with a look at the modern mythology of Nazi occultism, Flowers critiques postwar Nazi-related literature and unveils the presence of esoteric Nazi myths in modern occult and political circles.Stephen Edred Flowers, Ph.D., received his doctorate in Germanic languages and medieval studies from the University of Texas at Austin and studied the history of occultism and runology at the University of Göttingen, Germany. The author of more than 50 books, including Revival of the Runes, he lives near Smithville, Texas.

The hero is a central figure in our myths and stories. The hero can often provide inspiration or comfort. These stories can help us find our courage or feel a bit more powerful. The image of the hero is also a burden. Hero narratives in the dominate culture have combined with modern myths of the individual and individualism to paint a picture of the solo actor, the person who battles against enemies or the odds alone. The hero we imagine today, feeds the terrible loneliness of our time. And yet there are alternatives, and these can even be found in stories that have been framed or reshaped as hero narratives. The fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty," also known as "Briar Rose," is one example.Lots of storytellers and crafters of story, psychologists, and cultural commentators are engaged with our notion of the hero today, but the role of the hero in our stories and in our lives is something that each of us needs to consider. How does the powerful influence of the hero image and heroic rhetoric affect you? How does it shape your expectations of yourself, of other people, and of life? Support the show

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!! Look after your own ass.  Just good words to live by. This week we're dipping into the tales of the Brothers Grimm!  Because somehow we seem to have missed them so far. Ken selected this story and a returning guest host is reading it! Because no one, not even Ken, liked his solo episode from last week.  Don't worry, the people in charge of making that decision have been mercilessly ridiculed. So!  The story this week is called "Little Table Set Thyself, Gold-Ass, and Cudgel Out of the Sack".  Hard to believe there are any words left or the rest of the story. This weeks conversation topics include monkey syphilis, talking rose bushes, and the inevitable heat death of the universe.  Two of those are true, ten points to the first person to email us and tell us which one isn't.  "Little Table Set Thyself, Gold-Ass, and Cudgel Out of the Sack" was first published in Gimms' Fairy Tales in 1812 under the German title "Tischlein deck dich, Goldesel und Knüppel aus dem Sack." Email us at 5050artsproduction@gmail.com. Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics. Like, subscribe, leave a review. Now sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.

After a quick tour with Bill around Florida, new comic and friend Mario Adrion talks about his wild and unlikely journey from the LITERAL "Black Forest" of Brothers Grimm and childhood nightmares to the runways of Milan, fashion weeks in New York, and comedy stages of Hollywood. They discuss lighter fare about the weird aggressiveness of the German accent, provincial life, finding your voice as a comic after being an internationally successful underwear model, AND his hilarious viral video with Katy Perry on "American Idol." But they also delve into the secret and dark world of modeling, where people are treated like commodities; where assault and misconduct run rampant. Mario tells a particularly harrowing story about an experience overseas that may change your perception on the nature and victims of assault and rape. Through it all, Mario has maintained a love for learning and creating and has come out the other side with a lot to teach everyone about. A MUST LISTEN!
