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, you'll hear a story by Linda Goodman called "The Punishment" -- when a father is reluctant to follow his wife's order to spank their child, he comes up with a clever ruse to satisfy all parties concerned. Sam and Producer Jeff Simpson then swap their own childhood stories about unusual punishments.
