Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!
How old is too old to be a teenage dirtbag?
Like, that whole attitude stops being cool eventually, right?
That seems to be a major talking point in this weeks story by Russia's great tragedian or comedian depending on who you ask, Anton Long-middle-name-that-starts-with-a-P Chekhov.
Ken reads the story with such great detailed character work that even he forgets when he's reading and when he's just being an idiot. And this week's co-host Jamie does her best to sneak some historical relevance in, but it's a losing battle. But what do you expect from a story literally called "From the Diary of a Violent Tempered Man". It may as well be titled "Boo Hoo, I'm Grumpy".
Along the way, your hosts discuss the invention of CPR, adolescent melancholy, and Getting stoned and playing Grand Theft Auto.
"From the Diary of a Violent Tempered Man" was first published in July, 1887.
Oh, and for the song The Guitar, mentioned in this episode go here!
