Summertime is a time of many great activities. Shows like the rodeo often bring people together, but simpler activities such as strawberry picking can bring people together just as much. In this time of quarantine, may we all think back to our favorite summertime activities, as well as continue to form new memories with those around us. Many voices and many stories await in this episode to bring us some ideas, but it is up to us to listen. From funny stories about Paula Bunyan, cowboys and rodeo clowns we can derive new lessons and stories that we may have never before heard.  On today’s episode, enjoy the following: “An Old Rodeo Clown” by Donna Ingham on Waiting for Roy and Other Family Tales “The Power of the Horse” by Clive Romney on The Saga of the Sandpitch “Strawberry Picking” by Doug Elliott on Crawdads, Doodlebugs, & Creasy Greens Daily Mix: Rachel Wadham discusses “Bonnie and Clyde” “Paula Bunyan (A True Story)” by Joel Ben Izzy on How I Learned to Love Liver “New Americans” by Pippa White “Equus Caballus” by Cowboy Poetry on Elko!
