Welcome to The Apple Seed, some time filled with stories for you and your family. Since 2013 we’ve been bringing you tall tales, personal tales, fairy tales, historical tales and more. All kinds of tales, from all kinds of tellers. The words we say have power, as do the actions we take. When we communicate with other people, it is up to us whether or not we will be honest or lie, whether we will hurt them or help them. In today’s stories, we will be exploring this idea a lot, as we watch the effects of truth and lies, tricks and practical jokes. On today’s episode, enjoy the following: “La Mariposa” by Donna Washington from A Tureen of Tales (2:42) Radio Family Journal: "Stilts" by Sam Payne (15:55) The Daily Mix: "The Arrival" with Paul Ricks (22:42) “Messenger to Maftam” by Odds Bodkin from With A Twinkle in Your Eye (30:48) “Pat and the Mule Egg” by Christopher Leebrick from Good Stories from All Over (44:32) "Sr. Coyote" by Glenda Bonin from Winston the Wide Mouth Frog and Other Fantastic Folktales (48:37)
