Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!
This episode was very nearly titled "WTF".
Yeah, it's that kind of episode.
But here's the wild bit. It's because of the story!!!
Ken has selected a bizarre f-ing story called "Dragon-Child and Sun-Child" by a guy called A.G. Seklemian and it is just an absolutely unhinged little tale about... ...yeah, actually I don't know what it's about. I just finished listening and I'm pretty sure the whole thing is a demented fever dream.
To give you context, your hosts discuss a nation of genius genies, how babies get here, and the life saving properties of the McFlurry, and yet this story is still the weirdest part of the episode.
"Dragon-Child and Sun-Child" was published in 1898.
