Dorktales Podcast: Episode 34

Sleepy Hallow’s Eve – A Halloween Tale

Hello boils, ghouls, and non-corporeal entities! Our SCARE-rator is here to tell you a spooky tale that will send shivers up your quivers and make your teeth chatter with delight! It’s party time at Katrina’s house and Ichabod Crane is having the time of his life. Jealous of his fun, Brom Bones gathers the guests to tell the chilling tale of the Headless Horseman, because he knows it will make sweet, but superstitious, Ichabod shriek and head for home. And when he does, poor Ichabod encounters something sinister in the woods. Is it the bully Brom playing an evil prank or the legendary ghoulish ghost?

PARENTS, TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS: This is a retelling of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” Besides being a spooky story with some geeky references to Sonic the Hedgehog, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, there is an opportunity to talk to kids about jealousy, bullying, and standing up for yourself.

SENSORY ALERT: Thunder and lightning sound at 17:20 and 17:32. Four loud headless horseman evil laughs occur between 21:30- 24:30
