40. Bluebeard's Bride (World Folklore)

In today's giant of an episode, we delve into the classic tale of Bluebeard's Bride. We cover three different versions of the story, including La Barbe Bleue from France, Knight Goldbeard from Switzerland, and Zerendac and Abu Freywar from Palestine. We also discuss how Bluebeard has influenced the modern-day horror genre, how its message is still very applicable to this day, and Lizzie also blows Zoe's mind by revealing specific works that were inspired by the tale.
