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'll listen to an animal tale by Laura Simms, a story from Zimbabwe called "Rabbit and Lion." We'll talk about the story with Morgen Raynolds, a storyteller from Montana who goes professionally by "Miss Mo." Morgen remembers hearing Laura Simms tell stories at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and realizing that she, Morgen, could be a storyteller too. It set Morgen on a path that she's still on, telling stories near and far, on all kinds of stages, for all kinds of people. You'll enjoy today's BITE!
