A traveler is given a blessing and a curse, and both give rise to a most fearsome and extraordinary new creature.

On this page, you’ll find the podcast episode trailer and the full episode.
And of course, a link to the source, the short story.


[Video description: 59 seconds. Scanned watercolor painting. An armored knight riding a horse at center bottom joins several others who are streaming through a medieval town toward the top left of the image. Top right is the façade of a building with a gable roof, with another building and a tower behind it. To its left at a three-quarters angle are three more buildings. The small shapes of people are seen on the road and in doorways. In the far distance, two streams of dark smoke rise. Between them, a dragon’s head and outstretched wings rise from behind hills. In the center of town, small figures are seen between the stone and wood buildings. Watermark of the word “storyfeather” lays over the image. Title card over the image displays “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Fantasy” The words fade away, replaced by the story’s title. The title recedes. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “There are flames in the distance. There is a dragon in the distance. We must ride out to meet him. It is said that the first dragon was born of hatred. And all of the things that follow hatred. Envy and greed. Bloodlust. It is said that the first dragon was born from a person, right here in this very village. It is said that the first dragon was born of a curse. A curse that was meant to save, for some curses can save.” Website URL displays at bottom right & fades at end as a text box appears over image displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.”]
