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!

Don’t Try This at Home (Season 2, Episode 4)

August 17th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Are you ready for some new bits!? Here comes Science: Just in Case, a new segment of questionable scientific value where Ken explores stupid ways to set things on fire and Heather listens on in abject horror.

The we get to the literature. This week, Heather reads for us another tale from SciFi great H. G. Wells. Ken has chosen a story called "The Truth About Pyecraft". But you could be forgiven for hearing "Pie Craft".  We were definitely hoping for a story about baked goods and witches.

This weeks story comes with an extra little content warning because the narrator is pretty callous and careless about body shaming.  What a dick.

Also, fair warning you will hear:
Stupid things you should not do at home with household items (and when you don't do it, also don't send picture **winky face**).
A very unappetizing tea recipe.
An unpopular opinion about the television program The Office.

"The Truth About Pyecraft" was first published in 1903 in The Strand, which is almost as cool as Highlights for Kids.

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.
