Loremen S3 Ep50 - Stuart Goldsmith - The Ghosts of Warwick Castle

December 17, 2020

Stuart Goldsmith of the Comedian’s Comedian Podcast joins the Lorebois for some spooky tales from Stu’s old stomping ground of Warwick Castle* where he used to be the jester**.

Plus! One tale from Royal Leamington Spa, in which the veteran podcaster delves into a particular… area he has never touched upon before.

*An actual castle, not a pub with an overly ambitious name.

**An actual jester, not a buffoon with an overly ambitious name.

Loremen S3 Ep49 - The Legend of Sawney Bean

December 10, 2020

The Loremen are on the hunt for British werewolves, but it turns out the scariest thing of all… is the truth. James and Alasdair uncover grisly stories of cannibalism, Sunny Delight and the world’s deadliest Bean.

This episode features some of the least accurate animal facts in podcast history. You’ll never look at a weasel’s ear the same way again.

 

Loremen S3 Ep48 - The Sea Beasts of Shetland

Loremen S3 Ep48 - The Sea Beasts of Shetland

December 3, 2020

Alasdair leads us off the beaten track and across the sea to the northernmost part of the UK: the Shetland Islands.

Prepare yourself for a veritable ‘Who’s Who‘ of sea monsters, a ‘Where’s That‘ of obscure place-names and a ‘Why’s This‘ of supposedly Scottish accents.

Watch out for an unexpected number of bees, and learn how intimidating Norwegian applause can get…

Loremen S3 Ep47 - Andrew O’Neil - Weird Milton Keynes

Loremen S3 Ep47 - Andrew O’Neil - Weird Milton Keynes

November 26, 2020

This episode comes from the much derided and profoundly strange city of Milton Keynes. The Lorepokes are joined by comedy maverick, steampunk pioneer and practising ritual magician Andrew O’Neill.

MK’s ultra-modernist architecture conceals a cursed elm tree, a diabolical neighbour and a time-travelling windmill. Learn the secret of invisibility from Aleister Crowley, try to avoid the Illuminati and DO NOT EAT THE MYSTERY JELLY.

You have been warned.

 

 

 

Loremen S3 Ep46 - Crystal Palace

Loremen S3 Ep46 - Crystal Palace

November 19, 2020

Alasdair and James return to the borough where the Loremen first saddled up. It may sound like a fairy tale, but South London was once home to a great palace of cast iron and glass. Crystal Palace may have burned down*, but many mysteries remain…

Plummet! Into a ghost train full of Victorian skeletons. Dine! Inside an historically inaccurate dinosaur. Marvel! As a vengeful TV psychic comes a cropper. Listen! To this episode.

* Somehow. Like, glass and iron don’t burn, so…? We’re just asking questions.

 

Loremen S3 Ep45 - Grey Dolphin

Loremen S3 Ep45 - Grey Dolphin

November 12, 2020

A thrilling Kentish episode this week!
 
James recounts the legend of 14th century kick-machine Sir Robert de Shurland. He kicked cattle. He kicked commoners. He kicked clergymen. NO ONE was safe from his pied-à-terror!

This ep features a B-plot concerning a sailor's corpse with a wicked grin, who wreaked havoc on Kent's coastal churchyards. James pushes the boundaries of podcast storytelling* and gives you a startlingly accurate idea of the size of the Isle of Sheppey. (It's approximately Bristol plus Winchester).

*tells the story slightly out of chronological order for dramatic effect.

 

 

 

 

Loremen S3 Ep44 - The Wyck Rissington Maze

Loremen S3 Ep44 - The Wyck Rissington Maze

November 5, 2020

The Loremen came together for a special Halloween livestream, and here is the audio thereof! Featuring the much-anticipated reveal of great-grandaddy Shakeshaft's name! (It is not a human name.)

James brings you a clock-hating poltergeist, a classic haunted inn and a bunch of skeletons that are believed... to be dead. The stories all connect, but how?  Gather your red string and thumbtacks now, for one challenge remains.

Are you brave enough to enter the ghost maze of Wyck Rissington? (Say it with a flourish.)

 
 
Loremen S3 Ep43 - The Green Children of Woolpit

Loremen S3 Ep43 - The Green Children of Woolpit

October 22, 2020

Alasdair takes us on a journey to the Otherworld. The tale begins at the Peak District's rudest tourist attraction, stops off at Yorkshire's sauciest Neolithic mound and then emerges from the "ancient cavities" of Suffolk. The Green Children of Woolpit raise more questions than they answer. Do aliens exist? Do fairies? What about Australians? What are they all about?

 
Accent warning - the Loreblokes do a wide variety of Australian accents in this episode. Often within the same sentence. 
 
Loremen S3 Ep42 - Dana Alexander - Luna the Orca

Loremen S3 Ep42 - Dana Alexander - Luna the Orca

October 15, 2020

Comedian and genuine Canadian Dana Alexander takes us 'neath the waves of the legendary Pacific Northwest (or Pacific Southwest from Canada's point of view). The Nootka Sound was once home to an orphaned Killer Whale called Luna who just wanted attention from sailors. Hey, we've all been there. This episode also features some dodgy Canadian accent work from James and Alasdair, you betcha.

Loremen S3 Ep41 - The Boscombe Whale

Loremen S3 Ep41 - The Boscombe Whale

October 8, 2020

We figured that every man and his podcast would be doing a spooky special in honour of Halloween month, so we've gone entirely ghost-free. James tells the tale of a kooky doctor trying to dispose of a dead body. The twist? It's a whale's body. The other twist? He's really bad at it. (Feat. Gary Barlow)
