Apologies for the EXTREME delay in this episode: Meghan's audio was definitely a mess. Hopefully you enjoyed this book as much as we did, and hopefully you forgive us for this massive delay! Please go vote for our next season as well! Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rate and review us! Facebook Group | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram …
 
With the holidays, we definitely got delayed! But we hope you had a good one, as we did. We are continuing with Persephone by discussing the 2009 animated Wonder Woman movie! It's a bit of a...loose adaptation, but we have a good bit of fun discussing it and our favorite things about Wonder Woman. Join us next week for a dive into the 2016 novel, T…
 
This episode is a first in a lot of ways: our first Persephone retelling, our first Greek mythology retelling, and our first time doing a sequel of a series! We dive into Sarah J Maas's A Court of Mist and Fury to discover that we maybe do love our Hades character, sometimes like our Persephone character, but overall, eat a bit of crow in what we t…
 
Happy Thanksgiving! If you need a break from family, come dive into SEASON 8! We talk a few Greek underworld mythos, particularly Persephone and Hades and Orpheus and Eurydice! We are incredibly excited to branch out! Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rate and review us! Facebook Group | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Website | Email…
 
Mari and Meg headed to NYCC, so everything is late ahhh! But that's okay: due to peer pressure, we switched movies to John Wick! Which leads to a long discussion of how this has nothing to do with Baba Yaga. But we wrap up our thoughts on our favorite witch before getting ready for our next series! Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rat…
 
Mari and Meg are back with a slightly disappointing Baba Yaga story this week. Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble is pitched as an Anastasia Romanov and Baba Yaga story....which it does have both of these things. This book is as close to a "nice" Baba Yaga as we get, and that's a bit hard to stomach. Whiny teens, hundred-year-old suiters, it's defini…
 
Mari and Meg are back and talking about Vassilissa the Beautiful retellings! We have two for you in one episode, so get ready. We discuss "Fair Vasyl," a genderbending retelling by Steve Harper Piziks with a steampunk bonus, and Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter — a magical realism retelling set in Brooklyn and is dark and scary as Babs Yag should…
 
This week Mari and Meg watch the 1973 Italian film Baba Yaga! Unfortunately, we caught it on Amazon Prime right before it left. Based on a comic series, this movie follows Valentina, a photographer, as she falls under the sensual spell of Baba Yaga. We discuss the use of dolls in films and the racism of 1970s Italian films as well! Follow us on soc…
 
Season 7 continues (a day late because holidays confuse Meghan) with a look at Orson Scott Card's 1999 novel Enchantment! There is a lot to dislike about this book, but the one thing Meg and Mari definitely loved? Baba. Yaga. Go give us a listen to help celebrate Mari going back to school today! Be the Baba Yaga to those 5th graders! Follow us on s…
 
Mari and Meg are back to talk about one of the most badass witches of all time! Without an origin story though, it's a bit hard to talk about how she came to be. But we are incredibly excited to talk about Baba Yaga, and NOT have any "redemption" stories this season! Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rate and review us! Facebook Group …
 
Mari and Meg discuss 4 other fairy tales that we would love to see turned into modern retellings! These stories come from different cultures - Chinese, Italian, Romanian, and Russian. We also start tying into our next season's topic.... We also discuss The Thousandth Floor and Pretty Little Liars and other modern things....that don't quite pertain …
 
This week Marilag and Meghan take a break from Cinderella retellings to discuss Toads and Diamonds! They discuss the differences they see in books that are written to explore someone's own culture versus a culture you admire, the idea of too many plot lines, and how wonderful Indian food is! Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rate and r…
 
Meghan and Mari are back for their anniversary episode! (We don't actually address that in the episode, but Fableulous has officially been going strong for a year!) To celebrate, we read a fairy tale book suggested by its author: The Step-Spinsters! Given the title and description, it definitely seemed like a fit for this season! Disclosure: The au…
 
Marilag and Meghan couldn't get their hands on a book (library hold a little longer than expected!) So instead they watched Ever After after a bit of arm twisting. Just kidding — how could we not love to talk about this movie? We discuss the original step-sister who is now a stepmother, Vida makes a guest appearance, how the Prince becomes a villai…
 
Continuing with our Step-Sisters theme, Mari and Meg talk about Ella Enchanted, both the book and the movie. We discuss how this is a great feminist book and a ridiculously fun and silly movie, why the differences exist, and also our love for Princess Bride and Cary Elwes! Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rate and review us! Facebook …
 
Marilag and Meghan are back and ready to tackle step-sisters!....both of which they are?? This season is a bit different format, so please let us know what you think! This episode we talk about Cinderella primarily, as well as Toads and Diamonds and other stories with siblings. Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rate and review us! Face…
 
Meghan and Mari finally catch up for their last episode of the Bluebeard season! We discuss the 1980s Vonnegut book, which is a strange adaptation, to say the least. BUT it does lead to some great discussion of literature and art and how it changes. We also discuss Mari's trip to Paris, where she saw the opera Bluebeard's Castle! We also found a co…
 
Mari and Meg get a bit silly this episode, as they take some time from their busy lives to discuss the 2017 Korean film: Bluebeard. Is this film an adaptation? We really try to wrap our heads around this film that tries a little too hard to be smart. And also the ending.....what on earth happens. This film is on Netflix, so give it a watch before l…
 
This week we tackle another movie adaptation of Bluebeard! We are joined by Gena Radcliffe of Kill by Kill Podcast! We discuss Crimson Peak, a 2015 gothic horror Del Toro movie that somehow both Mari and I didn't see. And while we thought we had gotten away from the incest....yikes! Follow us on social media, and don't forget to rate and review us!…
 
This week Mari and Meg discuss their first Bluebeard movie: Ex Machina! Is it Oscar Isaac's amazing beard that makes it a retelling? (Did you realize that it's Oscar Isaac? Because Mari didn't at first!) We are also joined by our first guest: Tracy Tanoff! There are some slight recording issues roughly 3 minutes in — Meghan's audio dropped, which m…
 
This week Mari and Meghan are back to talk about "The Bloody Chamber" by Angela Carter! This story was a blast. Meghan tries to justify Bluebeard's kinks gone wrong (it's abandoned don't worry), we talk about how amazing the mom in this story is, and Vida makes a guest appearance to talk about her favorite Bluebeard adaptation! Follow us on social …
 
Mari and Meg watch another episode of Faerie Tale Theatre! Meg tries to convince Mari that it's star-studded, but maybe she just likes weird movies from the 80s and early 90s? There's the best invisibility cloak, and they also squee a little bit more about Speak Easy. Watch the episode of Faerie Tale Theatre! Follow us on social media, and don't fo…
 
This week Mari and Meg read Speak Easy, a novella placing 12 Dancing Princesses in 1920s NYC with some main characters that you might actually recognize.... This book is a bit darker, but also so incredibly fun. Please forgive Meghan for all of her Buffy references, and enjoy with Mari realizes who the book is about! We also announce our Season 5 t…
 
Somehow, Marilag and Meghan found a way to talk about the 2006 Barbie movie. It might be mostly chatter of how awful the animation is, or perhaps about how we cannot tell the difference in 11/12 of these princesses. Also, Fableulous is going to switch over to Wednesdays for Meghan's sanity! Join us again next Wednesday as we discuss Speak Easy by C…
