Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Have you ever wondered what a Garth Brooks Science Fiction song would sound like?

No?  That's okay, neither had I.  Then I heard this episode, and oh my...

This week, Ken has a story for Heather that was written by a railroad watchman who never went to school. And if that doesn't get you excited, you're probably a clever person.

H. Beam Piper wrote "The Answer" and it was published back in 1958.  Once again, lazy copyright lawyers make it available to us already!  Though we're not so sure that song about raccoons is in the public domain yet, so... ssshhhhh.

As the story progresses your hosts discuss 1920s frat boys, 50 foot shafts, and putting long things in your mouth.

"The Answer" was published in 1958.  Extensive research has found no evidence of active copyright.
