Producer for this show:
Our Patreon supporter for this episode is half-decade-plus supporter Catherine! We name her our honorary golden goose or wish-granting djinn of the episode, with our gratitude. Our immense appreciation goes out to Catherine, and to all of our listeners and supporters!

Cory reads the story “The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg” from Aesop (via Library of Congress). He also reads an excerpt from the anonymous 19th century grimoire, The Black Pullet.
