This week, in honor of the upcoming release of Disney's Aladdin, Rachael shares a story from The Thousand and One Nights: "The Three Apples." It's often called one of the first whodunit mysteries, and it should come as no surprise to fans of true crime that it's full of problematic treatment of women!
