The Golden Touch Screen
Listen now
After missing out on the latest aPhone release, the Acorn-product-obsessed Mr. Redge makes a desperate deal with a dark magic sorcerer. Quivering over almost losing his quills, he meets Acorn founder Beeve Hogs. Beeve tells him the story of King Midas and his love of gold, and the wizard that grants Midas' greedy wish. Will the story's unintended consequences touch Redge’s heart and remind him what he should value the most? PARENTS, TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS: This story was inspired by the mythological story of King Midas and the Golden Touch. It’s a lesson to never forget what matters most in one’s life—friendships, connection, caring for others. It highlights the perils of valuing things over people.  Episode webpage: If you liked this story, you may also like Episode 30: The Goldiquills Effect, a retelling of the classic Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Dorktales Storytime Podcast website: CREDITS: This episode has been a Jonincharacter production.
