King Midas and the Golden Touch

Encore Episode

June 15,2023

Originally aired June 2020 -E90

Do you know any stories about people who are granted a wish from a fairy or some magical creature?  Can you remember what they wished for and if it came true?  If someone were to grant you one wish right now – what would you wish for?

Hello everyone.  I’m Kathleen Pelley.  Welcome to Journey with Story.  So I wonder what sort of things you wished for?  And were you able to name any stories about people being granted a wish?  Well, we have quite a few here on this podcast and one very popular one is about a King who is granted a wish, but it doesn’t turn out quite the way he had hoped.   This is an ENCORE episode that first aired in 2020 and it is called King Midas and the Golden Touch, and since King Midas is a father who loves his little daughter, Marigold very much, this is a perfect story to celebrate Father’s Day which we will be celebrating very soon.

Let’s take an ENCORE journey with this Greek Myth

King Midas and the Golden Touch

Well, do you think the story’s souvenir is? What little glimmer of truth about what it means to be human lingers with you after hearing this story?  I think for many of us, it is the same as most storis about wishes and that is – BE careful what you wish for.  And also, maybe cherish what you already have and know that your friends and family are precious beyond measure and more valuable than any amount of gold.

Happy Father’s Day to all of our wonderful dads who listen to this podcast with their little ones.

Cheerio then- join me next time for Journey with Story
