Week 1: “Lion and Hare and a Well.” The fable is a traditional Aesop tale. I’ve shortened it a bit from previous tellings. Do the powerful have the right to oppress? Let’s let the victims become the victors. Launching a new and faster podcast over on Anchor for as long as I can keep up with it. 4:15 second listen.

Week 2: “The Hare and His Ears” by Aesop. The powerful should ban those who are different? Maybe everyone will leave. 3:16 run time.

Week 3: “The Miser and His Gold” by Aesop. Go ahead, collect wealth only to stare at it. Or maybe not. 3:30 Run Time.

Week 4: “The Lion’s Share” by Aesop. When the powerful hunt with the lesser, who do you think gets the spoils?

Week 5: “The Fox and the Hedgehog.” Who has the most tricks? Who has the one best trick? An Aesopian Grimm tale by way of Romania or the like.

Week 6: “The Lion and His Bad Breath.” Does power require good news, delivered twice a day? The question of speaking truth-to-power is an old theme. Also known as ” The Lion and his Councilors.”

Week 7: “The Eagle at the Concert.” It’s hard to speak truth to power; that is why so few can do it. An Aesop-influenced fable.

Week 8: “The Dog and Wolf” How free is your freedom? How much does it cost to be fed? An Aesop-influenced fable.

Week 9: “The Man and the Lion Have a Debate” What advantages does one have in society? An Aesop-influenced fable.

Week 10: “The Frog and the Ox.” Can we be bigger than ourselves? Not always. . .

Week 11: “The Peacock and the Crane.” So, who is to say that beauty is the most important thing?

Week 13: “The Famer and His Sons.” So, is it worth it to work when there’s no treasure there?

Week 14: “The Tiger in the Pit.” Hmm, is power as wise as it thinks it is? Hare judges a dispute.
