James Baldwin had a great talent for taking old stories and tales and retelling them in an entertaining way.

In this episode we bring you 1) Androclus The Lion- a story of a societal cast out who befriends a lion, 2) Bruce and The Spider- A Scottish king learns an important life's lesson from a spider, 3) Damon & Pythias- true friendship is a rare and valuable thing indeed, 4) Horatio At The Bridge- a story of how one man's courage inspired an entire city, 5) King John & The Abbot- King John becomes jealous of an Abbot who lives a grand lifestyle so he tells the Abbot he must answer three questions correctly or lose his head and all his property. A lowly shepherd provides a solution.
