Campfire Classics Podcast

A Literary Comedy podcast where we try to read those books that look good on your shelf…and laugh a lot along the way!

Sir Johnny Bangs (Season 2, Episode 1)

July 27th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

It's the season 2 premiere!

Which really means nothing more than we're restarting the episode count because it feels cool.

This week, Heather has selected a story for Ken to read by an author unknown to either of our hosts before this reading.  His name was John Kendrick Bangs, and he might have invented an adult film genre.  Or possibly just ghost story sub-genre.  You know it's hard to tell sometimes.  Regardless, the story is called The Water Ghost of Harrowby Hall: A Victorian Christmas Spirit Story," and Ken gives a pretty good effort at reading it.

Along the way, the hosts ask:
Whose job is it to get things wet?
How would you deal with a ghost?
And who would you curse with perpetual mildew?

"The Water Ghost of Harrowby Hall" was the titular story in the 1894 collection The Water Ghost, and Others.

Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.

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