At the Tail End, a Tale, not Tall

CBC Ideas
Vestigial Tale
An episode devoted to story telling.

At 49:00 minutes in of an hour show we are sent off with a story recounted by Aideen McBride.

One of them figures "truth" and the other "story". McBride concludes her recounting with the observation that truth gains admittance accompanied by story.

And so for day 2376
