From the Estonian epic, the Kalevipoeg, comes the story of, well, Kalevipoeg, the son of a giant who battles sorcerers who are trying to get with his mom and throws rocks the size of Volkswagens to win the kingship, all while trying to carve out a place in the world for his people and his homeland. The creature this week is an annoying piggyback ride from a stranger in the dark forest and why you should go along with that. -- Sponsors: This episode is sponsored by Anchor.
