Episode 46- No Win Situation

May 4th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

It's May!  It's May!  The lusty month of May!  And this week's episode is full of unexpected musical theatre references.  But that is beside the point.

The point, when we come to it, is reading old stories, and in this episode Heather has chosen a story for Ken to read called "The Phantom Coach" by a fascinating woman named Amelia Edwards.  It's a moody, broody, winter night on the moors kind of tale, so strap in.

But don't worry, it's not all doom and gloom.  As promised, non-sequiturs abound as Ken and Heather discuss hallucinogenic scotch, the origins of Schoolhouse Rock, and 14 year old polyamorous spinsters.

"The Phantom Coach" was first published in 1864.

Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.

Another big thank you to Wayne and his podcast Florida Men on Florida Man, for helping make last week far and away our biggest week for listener numbers.  Learn more at

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