Episode 50- Don’t Google That

June 1st, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

We're ringing in June with our 50th episode!

50!

Like, we actually made it to 50 stories...

Okay, 49 stories, since "A Scandal in Bohemia" took up episodes four and five, but you get the point!

And the honor of the author of episode number 50 goes to none other than Oscar Wilde.

Ken gets to read this one, and it is a laugh riot. "The Remarkable Rocket" had our hosts in stitches even when it wasn't making accidental pornographic double entendres. But what else do you expect from one of the greatest comedic linguists in English speaking history.

After Heather reads a bit about Mr. Wilde, we dive into the story, posing some important questions along the way.

What is the most awkward thing you've ever had to google?
Who is the most sensitive person you can think of?
And when did we stop getting two middle names?

"The Remarkable Rocket" was first published in 1888 in The Happy Prince and Other Tales, a collection of five fairytales written by Oscar Wilde.

Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.

This weeks promo is from Malice.  Ariel is incredible in her in depth analysis of the cases she chooses, so definitely, give her a listen.

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