Can storytelling change the world? How does our media shape our understanding and perceptions of other cultures? As we await the release of the live-action remake of the beloved animated film Aladdin, these questions have bubbled to the surface. In this exploration of the best-known retelling of Aladdin and his Enchanted Lamp, we’ll learn about the jinn of Islamic theology, the tangled publication history of the One Thousand and One Nights, and the stories that came together to inspire a children’s classic. You ain’t never had a podcast like us.
