Malign Pursuit

May 3rd, 2022

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

This week's co-host is Ken's brother, Craig!  The boys had fun last time he came on, but this week Craig starts the episode off with a shocking revelation!

Once they sort that out, Ken introduces this week's author and story, and Craig jumps into a valiant reading of C.M. Eddy, Jr's "The Ghost-Eater".

Along the way, the boys discuss a new music genre, Craig struggles to pronounce words (this is why you warm up), and Ken fails to remember the name of the guy who wrote Conan the Barbarian.  It's Robert E. Howard, Ken, you've read him on this show.  Get your crap together, dude.

If you listened last week, a "cash clo man" was a man who would stand in the street ringing loud cowbells and offering to buy people's junk, especially old clothes.  They were outlawed across most of the planet by the late 1930s for being loud and annoying.

"The Ghost-Eater" was published in Weird Tales in 1924.
