On today's Apple Seed Extra, enjoy “The Golden Touch” by Heather Forest. In today's full episode of The Apple Seed, we talked about how the King Midas story told by Big Joe in the episode was a little different from the original Greek tale. Heather’s version -- today's Apple Seed Extra --  is a bit more faithful to the 8 AD text—Dionysus is the wish granter, Silenus the Satyr is the creature Midas cares for, and Midas cleanses himself in the river Pactolus. That said, Nathanial Hawthorne’s addition, where Midas turns his daughter to gold, still makes an appearance. It's kind of fun to see the difference between Big Joe’s piece and Heather’s.
