Risking Enchantment

'The things I believed most then, the things I believe most now, are the things called fairy tales. They seem to me to be the entirely reasonable things.' G.K. Chesterton

In this episode Rachel and Phoebe discuss Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones, why it's a great example of a fairy story and how fairy stories help us to know and love the world around us.
