The Drag Queen Chaperone (Season 2, Episode 6)

August 31st, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

Bienvenue, nos amis!  Welcome, our friends!

That's right! This week we're taking a crack at French literature, and Heather gets to swing at that sweet sweet troubling language.

Our story today comes from author Maurice Marie Émile Leblanc, a French writer often compared favorably to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  The story Ken has chosen for Heather is called "The Arrest of Arsène Lupin," and is the first ever appearance of the great gentleman-burglar and detective Arsène Lupin.

It is a fascinating case, but not so fascinating that our hosts stay completely on topic.  To Ken and Heather's credit, their tangents are almost relevant this time 

We have officially entered the Brenaissance Era.

"The Arrest of Arsène Lupin" was first published in 1905 and started nearly 30 years worth of crime and mystery stories.

Promo this week from Boozed and Confused, another couple hosted podcast that delves in to the odd, creepy, and possibly supernatural mysteries in our history.

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.
