A Literary Comedy podcast where we try to read those books that look good on your shelf…and laugh a lot along the way!

Alas, Wife…

April 5th, 2022

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Ready for a story with a moral?  Nah, me neither.  How about this vague fairy tale by Scotsman Andrew Lang.  Ken has selected the story "The Fisherman and his Wife" from The Green Fairy Book.

Your hosts also play a new game that you can play along with at home!  Write in and let us know how you stack up.

Along the way, Ken and Emily discuss decorative metals, crown fashion, and filthy song lyrics!

"The Fisherman and his wife" was published in 1892.

Please, email us at and request to hear Emily's anime Fan Fiction read on an upcoming episode.

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.
