#106 - The Muzhik Who Fed Two Officials

A sleepy 19th century Russian satire written as a fairy tale in which two helpless government officials are saved by a hard-working muzhik.

Bodhi and I ran across a patch of canyon larkspur on a hike this week, and when I went to find out more about it, it led me down an amazing internet rabbit hole filled with information about the Yuki Native Americans, this land's original inhabitants. You can see pictures of the canyon larkspur flowers and find links to studies of Yuki uses for our native plants and vivid stories of their culture on my blog at https://www.listentosleep.com/blog/canyon-larkspur/.

You can read this story (and other classics from the public domain) by downloading it for free at https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/13437.

If you like the podcast, please leave a review. It really does help other people find it.

When you support the podcast for as little as $3 a month, you'll get some perks to help you fall deeply asleep, including the podcast a day earlier without any ads. You'll also be helping me realize my dream of helping more people get better sleep at night and more peace during the day. :)

You can also get a shareable audiobook of the longer books I read on Listen To Sleep Plus. It's another way to support the podcast and get some extra bedtime stories without a monthly subscription. Each one is available to own for just $5.50 as chapterized mp3s that will play on any MP3 player.

Thank you for listening.💜
