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!

Tequila! (Season 2, Episode 7)

September 7th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Neither rain, nor snow, nor too many Margaritas shall keep us from bringing you this show.

And this week, we test a part of that promise.  But which part? I'll bet you can guess!

This week Ken gets to read a loopholed Public Domain story from beloved children's author and apparent psychopath Roald Dahl.  Heather has chosen for Ken a story called "Lamb to the Slaughter," and I have it on good authority that it's not nearly as depressing as that title makes it sound!

It's a twisted web our author weaves.  Unsurprising if you've actually read the horrifying book version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  And along the way our hosts get some real good work done, like starting a Happy Birthday choir, dashing their own political futures, and asking the age old question "Have you ever seen a sheep nipple?

"Lamb to the Slaughter" was first published in 1953 and has since been adapted into an episode of Alfred Hitchcock presents.  Well Alfred, I guess great minds do think alike.
Research has not discovered a renewal of the copyright on this story.  If you own the copyright, please contact us and we will take all appropriate action after saying only a small handful of snarky things to you.

Promo this week from Hindsight Movie Reviews, a podcast that has Ken actively seeking a guest spot.

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.
