Episode 17: “The White Snake” (9:35)
Whenever I read this type of story I always wonder who it was that first ate a white snake and realized he could suddenly hear animals speak. For that matter, I would love to see a fairy tale version of Chopped. “In your entree basket: “Whole duck, leg of Horse, White Snake, and an apple from the Tree of Life. You have thirty minutes. Time starts…now!” Can you imagine what magical powers that dish would have? Wow!
(Production note: You might notice a very loud bird that did not have the courtesy to shut up while I was recording this episode. I let it be…I felt a chirping bird was rather appropriate for a story about a man given the power to talk to animals.)
