PseudoPod 765: The Child Feast of Harridan Sack

Author: Kaitlyn Zivanovich
Narrator: Jasmine Blake
Host: Scott Campbell
Audio Producer: Chelsea Davis

PseudoPod 765: The Child Feast of Harridan Sack is a PseudoPod original.



I plant a whisper in my daughter’s hair when her shoulders shake and hunch up to her ears. It’s only a story, I say. I turn the page; I’ve resolved her fears. It’s only a story. That is what mothers say to their daughters. 

What kind of comfort is that?

It’s not a reassurance, or a consolation.

It’s a warning.

It’s a story, child. Pay attention, it is a story.
