In episode 14, Clio is once again joined by Meredith Ringel-Ensley to discuss folklore - the album and the field of study. What kinds of stories is Taylor interested in telling in folklore and evermore, and how does she tell them? Clio and Meredith discuss Vladimir Propp's work on Russian folktales, Gérard Genette on narrative theory, and the cultural connotations of Merlot and Olive Garden.
Meredith has a PhD in Comparative Literature and works at a writing center. If you like cats, etymology, or both, find her on Instagram at @caedmon_the_catman.
