Vampire Trees! (Season 2, Episode 14)

October 26th, 2021

Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

We've got heather back for 1 hour during a rehearsal break! Can we do it?  Could anybody do it?  Is it madness to even try? Record an episode of Campfire Classics in such a short time!? Can Ken and Heather stay on track!?

Let's find out...

Well, it's Halloween, or close enough, and since last week's story was less scary than anticipated, we've decided to go with the never miss spookiness of H.P. Lovecraft.  This week's story is called "The Unnamable", which seems inherently false advertising.  If you name something "The Unnamable" it is no longer unnamable.  Lies!  Lies on the level of "The Neverending Story"!

That bit of perturbation dealt with, the story is really quite engaging, despite a few tangents during which your hosts discuss:
Dicks and why they are always swinging.
The origins of Harry Potter's name.
And, of course, arboreal vampirism.  Look at the episode title.

Ken's Fun Facts are all about the history of Halloween, so if you want to learn a bit about our author, check out episode number 11, titled "Don't Go in the Moist Hole" where Heather tries to read the story "The Tomb". 

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.
