Episode 41- Crotch of Shame

March 30th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Ken threw a little curve ball this week with some fun facts that have nothing to do with the story. What are those facts about? You'll have to listen to find out.

This week's author is a Campfire Classics regular, SciFi great H.G. Wells.  For facts on him, go check out Episodes 3 and 8.  The story is "The Red Room," and Heather's reading is strangely reminiscent of an episode of Frasier.  Along the way, our hosts eschew their traditional sex jokes in favor of a much more high brow style of humor: farts and pee. 

Discussion topics not related to bodily functions include Chekhov's gun, magic fog trees, and geriatric West Side Story.

"The Red Room" was first published in The Idler magazine, in March 1896.
