Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!
Well, this episode comes with a content warning.
Not because it's especially vulgar, just because we decided it's finally time to add one of those.
So, there's the business out of the way. Now for the fun stuff.
This week's story was selected by Heather and was written by Bret "Not The Hit Man" Harte. My apologies to anyone who is not a fan of '90s WWF wrestling. That joke was a little niche.
The story in question, "Tennessee's Partner", is a truly charming and heartfelt story. So naturally our hosts try to make fun of it. But despite their best efforts, the story is really what really shines through in this one.
Of course, Heather and Ken still hit many absurd talking points along the way. What name would you choose for yourself if you could? Why do some people (Heather) insist on finding clever segues? And why was Mark Twain such a dick?
"Tennessee's Partner" was first published in the Overland Monthly in 1869, and has been described as "one of the earliest 'buddy' stories in American fiction."
Remember to tell five friends to check out Campfire Classics.
