This is the second episode in a series on fairy tales and Disney Princesses. This week I’m talking all about that day-dreaming, dainty-footed Cinderella! I discuss the ancient history of the Cinderella story, why dreams are more powerful than hopes, and if Cinderella is actually our unsung feminist heroine.

As always, a full transcription of this episode is linked here on the blog, as well as a list of sources and links that I used in my research.

This month’s book club pick is Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao! It’s an East Asian fantasy reimagining of Snow White, and I’ll be discussing it on Monday the 31st of August.

Interested in more Disney Princess / fairy tale content? Listen to last week’s episode on Snow White here, or hear me read The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen for you here.
