Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!
What is your favorite late December tradition? Because this week, we've found a new one.
Taking up the torch of a centuries old British tradition, we're reading a ghost story for the holidays. Spooky author M.R. James returns to give us some tips on writing, and Heather takes a pass at his short "Lost Hearts." Ken tries not to roast his chestnuts, we learn a lot about architecture, and jokes are funnier when you explain them, right?
"Lost Hearts" was originally published in 1895. It was later collected in James' 1904 book Ghost Stories of an Antiquary.
Craig Kellberg once again contributes his musical talents. Listen for his sick Hurdy-Gurdy shredding.
So sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.
