Doc-in-Boots also pointed today to a page of Fairy Tales Re-imagined Podcasts (page down the site to see the links), a symposium held in Australia last year at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. I am going to directly link to each one here, too, since some are about readers' favorite tales.
The podcasts are from a two-day symposium exploring how traditional fairy tales are being reworked by visual artists, filmmakers and popular culture. They are free and I am always appreciative of that!
