A Good Many Insertions

November 30th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Here at Campfire Classics, the coming of the holiday season means only one thing.  A shift in the tone of our stories.  It’s time to leave the mysteries and frivolities of the rest of the year behind and turn our minds back to that genre truly synonymous with Christmas...GHOST STORIES!

Emily is back behind the mic, coming at us from Connecticut.  Ken has chosen a story for her from long time Campfire Classics favorite M.R. James.  The story is called "The Diary of Mr. Poynter", and though it is a slow burn to the spookiness, it definitely gets to that creeping horror we've come to expect from his writing.

In the tradition of great episodes before, this one devolves into bouts of giddy laughter as Ken and Emily discuss Thanksgiving cuteness, perpetually wet spots, and a sexual goat auntie.

"The Diary of Mr. Poynter" was first published in Ghost Stories of an Antiquary in 1904.

Also, the 2022 calendar featuring co-host Ken in Halloween animal ears is now available on our website!

Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.

Now sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.
