Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!
Have you had your taco today?
This week, your hosts extend a tentative olive branch to recent Campfire Classics villain Mark Twain as they read the short story that made him famous "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County". Heather chose this story, and Ken does his best to read it, but it isn't a straight path through. Along the way your literary companions get distracted by Philadelphia geography, spaying and neutering pets, and beefy tacos.
"The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" was first published in the November 18, 1865 edition of The New York Saturday Press where it was wildly popular and catapulted Twain into the public eye. It has since been included in several short story collections.
Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.
