Episode 33- Dynamite of the Soul

February 2nd, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Thank you for helping us pass 2,000 downloads!

We're hitting classic humorist P.G. Wodehouse this week!  Well, reading, not hitting.  He is dead and it would be weird to hit him.  We learn a lot about Sir Wodehouse while Heather makes a valiant effort to read his short story "Absent Treatment".  We tackle the world's first "Not" joke, the origins of the dancing feline musical, and what actually is the "Dynamite of the Soul"?

"Absent treatment" was published in Strand in March 1911 and can be found in the 1919 collection My Man Jeeves.
