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. One of the most enjoyable parts about listening to or reading stories is witnessing the characters use their brains to overcome their difficulties. Though not everyone in a story can wield a sword or climb the tallest mountain, they can almost certainly use their wisdom and cleverness to think themselves into a solution for the problems they face. In today’s stories, we’ll get to see how certain characters forge their own destinies by outsmarting and out-planning their foes. On today’s episode, enjoy the following: “The Clown of God” by Fran Yardley from The Sears Roebuck Baby (3:42) Radio Family Journal: "Dog in the Van" by Sam Payne (18:00) The Daily Mix: "Campfire Smoke" with Kim Weitkamp (24:28) “Tipingee” by The Storycrafters from Gather Roun’ the Fire (33:41) “Three Green Ladies” by Diane Edgecomb from In the Groves (48:00)
