Welcome to The Apple Seed! Some time filled with stories for you and your family. Since 2013 we’ve been bringing you tall tales, personal tales, fairy tales, historical tales and more. All kinds of tales, from all kinds of tellers. Today we’re bringing you a folk tale from Liberia called “Clever Counting,” the story of a leopard who is on the search for an animal who is just as clever as she is. You’ll hear from our very own Sam Payne with a story entitled “Camelot”, about his experience with a school play when he was growing up. Odds Bodkin will tell you “The Runaway Horse”, a folk tale about a young man down on his luck. We’ll wrap it all up with Lona Bartlett’s hilarious personal tale “Heck No, We Didn’t Bury My Mother!” Thanks for joining us on the Apple Seed!
