Travel Tape Episode Four: Fables & Follies, Campfire Tales From Kenya

Everywhere in the world, people enjoy sharing stories about their encounters with wild animals. In this episode of Travel Tape, Kenyans Josphat Mako and Kyle Ray, Tanzanian Lenganasa Tombo, and UK-born guidebook writer Stuart Butler swap fables, legends, and true tales that include being lunged at by an 18-foot (6m) python, chased by a rampaging elephant, and losing out on an interview with a king because he had turned into a bird.

For fans of history there's also some speculation on whether the great fabulist Aesop was himself an African.

Once again the audio for this show was recorded live in Kenya and once again I've used it to create some very lush and immersive soundscapes.

All the writing and editing for this show, as well as all the audio editing and mixing, was done by me, Robert Kelly.
