This week’s first tale explores the nature of self-definition. What is it to be a human being? What are we capable of? How do we reconcile the ends of the spectrum of human potential? These deep philosophical questions are explored through the medium of urban legend games and the brutality that they can create within us. 

Our second story speaks to the gentler side of humanity. Love, empathy, regret, and recognition of the impact of a single human being on the course of history. In this twisted take on A Christmas Carol, we see just how much damage a man can do through recklessness and ego. 

These stories are works of fiction. Any names or characters, businesses or places, events or incidents, are fictitious. Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental.

Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling is created for adult audiences only. The content and discussion in this show will necessarily engage with various accounts that include violence, anxiety, fear, and occasional body horror. Much of it will be emotionally and intellectually challenging to engage with. We will flag especially graphic or intense content so as to never put you in an uninformed or unprepared position. We will do our best to make this a space where we can engage bravely, empathetically, and thoughtfully with difficult content every week.
