Syd Lieberman is an internationally acclaimed storyteller, an award-winning teacher, and an author who knows his way around stories. Last night, The Apple Seed team received word of his passing. This episode is a tribute to the wise and kind person Syd Lieberman was and the legacy he left behind. This episode includes one of Sam Payne's favorite conversations with Syd, and a few stories that highlight the kind of storytelling giant he was. For The Apple Seed, it was truly an honor to be able to meet and work with Syd and his stories, and our condolescences go out to Syd's family, friends, and loved ones.
