In dire times of famine, two children are led deep into the forest and are abandoned by their parents. The children are clever, but when they happen upon a house made of sweets and a little old lady inviting them in, well... just like a little mouse sniffing cheese on a mousetrap, there are some things in life that can't be resisted.
This is the Grimm Brother's seventh version of the tale, which I am rather fond of. We spend the beginning of the program talking a little about the symbology of the story before diving into the creepy little tale.

We want your true stories for our True Tales to Tell in the Dark portion of the podcast that will begin in March. What kind of true stories? Anything creepy, dark, haunting… write about the haunted house you used to live in, your UFO sighting, your creepy doll, or experience with a clown. Tell me how you were almost abducted on the side of a lonely highway when your car broke down, or tell me about the strange sound a beast made out in the woods that you couldn’t tell if was human or something else… just make sure it is true! Please send your true story within the body of the email to firstname.lastname@example.org with TRUE TALE in the subject line. Please give me your first name and the state you live in (if in US) or country you live in if outside the US—or remain completely anonymous. It's up to you. If you’d like more details go to HERE.
