Tales from Korea

Inspired by Frank Chin's visit to Portland, I've been looking up traditional Asian stories for the past couple weeks. I found an excellent collection of traditional Korean stories here. Check it out--there are four podcasts altogether, all downloadable, and all totally free. The storyteller is a white woman from Seattle, but she's talented, and they sound genuine. The Korean people in these traditional stories are all strong characters with real motivations, free from all the baggage that comes from Asian American culture. Check it out!
