From time to time, we'll post what we call a BITE ("like a normal episode, only shorter!"). We always hope that the stories you listen to on The Apple Seed will spark memories and thoughts that you can share with the ones you love -- perhaps even the people with whom you listen to the show. In a BITE, we'll listen to a single story -- one that we love -- and invite friends to share memories and thoughts that occur to them as they listen to it. On today's BITE, we visit a carnival with Donald Davis and his little brother, Joe, to ride something called "The Octopus." If you've ever tackled a terrifying theme park ride and lived to tell the tale, Donald Davis' story is just right for you. Joining us in the studio to talk about it is Apple Seed assistant producer Jenny Goldsberry and her cousin. They'll chat about some of the rides they've been on. It's sure to bring back summertime memories for you to share with the people you love.
