Today's episode features the work of Steve Sanfield. Steve was the founder (and for many years artistic director) of the Sierra Storytelling Festival in Nevada City, California. He was also a beloved storyteller himself. Many of the recordings Steve left behind after his passing in 2015 have been curated and compiled by Sanfield's long-time colleague Angela Lloyd into a new collection called "To Life: The Stories of Steve Sanfield." Today, we talk with Angela, who is an accomplished storyteller herself, about Steve's work and the impat it had on the storytelling community. And, of couse, we'll bring you plenty of stories too; listen for "True Love," "Hitting the Bull's Eye," and "Bit by Bit." We'll also bring you a couple of Chelm stories -- stories about the fabled town of fools from the Jewish storytelling tradition.
