A folktale with an intriguing riddle.

Story

A husband and his brother have their heads chopped off by a bandit. The wife weeps so much when she finds them that a goddess offers to bring them back to life. All the wife needs to do is put the heads on the bodies but she is crying so much that she puts the wrong head on the wrong body. Which one is her husband?

Why we chose it

Who is the Husband? was one of the stories in The Story Museum’s original audio stories collection. It is an unusual riddle story.
