Episode 44- Harass ‘em with Butter

April 20th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

What do you get when you mix two quarantined actors, a long dead author, and a bottle of wine?

Well, you're here, so you've probably guessed the answer is: an Episode of Campfire Classics!

This week it's Ken's turn to read, and Heather has selected a story that has been adapted and referenced countless times in television, film, and other media. "The Monkey's Paw" by W. W. Jacobs.  It is a truly classic tale of the macabre.  Along the way, our hosts discuss wine and movie snack pairings, dream up a new crime solving duo, and definitely do not officially condone attacking your enemies with sticks of butter.

"The Monkey's Paw" was first published in England in the collection The Lady of the Barge in 1902.

Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.
