Welcome to Campfire Classics, a Literary Comedy Podcast!!

I'm going to get straight to the point, something your hosts seem completely incapable of doing this week.

This story is actually fairly divisive. Like, Ken and Heather don't agree what the message was. So, listen to the end and let us know who you agree with!

That out of the way, the story is by an author who may or may not be a hammerhead shark named Lucas Malet. Spoilers, it's a fake name.

The story is called "The Birth of a Masterpiece," and it is psychologically complex (the only time anyone will say that about this show).

While Ken reads with admirable effort, your hosts discuss getting tanked on wine coolers, mid '90s garage drugs, and literary pornography.

"The Birth of a Masterpiece" was first published in 1922 in The Story-Teller.
