It's time to Circle Round again, friends! In today's episode of WBUR's storytelling podcast for children, I voice the middle sister, Maria, in The Horse of a Different Color. You’ll hear versions of this tale across the Spanish-speaking world, from Mexico and Guatemala to Puerto Rico and Spain. Variations also come from Poland and Norway.
This is a story about three wishes... three sisters... and one magical horse.
Other voices in this episode include Amy Brentano, Bindy Coda, Nick Sholley, Christina Anthony and Lindsay Mendez. Christina Anthony stars as Aunt Denise on the Black-ish spin-off series, Mixed-ish. Season two premieres January 26th on ABC. Tony Award winner Lindsay Mendez stars in the legal drama, All Rise, now in its second season on CBS.
