Campfire Classics Podcast

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

Chekhov’s Slap

March 29th, 2022

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Here's a bit of tonal whiplash from last week.  Good lord, you really never know what you're going to get with this show, do you!?

So, Ken is reading a children's story this week called "The Book of Beasts"!  Written by Edith Nesbit, it is an early children's adventure story about a boy king and a dragon. Also, pay attention to this week's fun facts, because Nesbit's personal life was bananas!

Ken puts in a respectable effort at reading the story, but plenty of ridiculousness is still covered ranging from the slap heard round the world, our upcoming mile marker, and laughter is the root of all evil.

"The Book of Beasts" was published in the book The Book of Dragons in 1901.

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.
