Episode 38- Cuckoo in the Bean

March 9th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

As we near the 1 year mark of being quarantined from the world, let's look back at all the marvelous...

Nah, never mind, how about we just read another story.

This week, Ken gets to read an odd little story by the apparently famous (though we'd never heard of him) Ring Lardner.  "Haircut" is a charming, folksy, storyteller-y short story with more suspicious character crammed into 8 pages than you can shake a stick at (or some other olde timey idiom).

Along the way, Ken and Heather talk Music Man re-writes, grave robbing vengeance, and (stick around until the end) a Campfire Classics animal costume calendar.  

"Haircut" was first published  in 1925, and is his most republished and anthologized story.

And, if you can't wait for more of Ken's voice, head over to Plum Forest Podcast and listen to hime in episode 31, The River Rock

So sit back, light a fire (or even a candle), grab a drink, and enjoy.
