  • 78: Loremen S3 Ep 78 - Sir Gawain and The Green Knight

    02/09/2021 Duração: 37min

    From the depths of Wales's Brecon Beacons, at the Green Man Festival, two plucky Loreboys attempted a pod-first: recording a podcast in a tent. Sadly, it proved to be too rainy and of that recording, only fragments remain… Join Alasdair and James for exclusive access to the so-called 'Green Man Tapes,' as well as the 14th Century tale of a true-hearted knight, an un-jolly green giant and someone's hot wife. We're doing a live show in front of an actual audience* on Sunday 12th Sept, 4.30-6pm at the Bill Murray Pub in London. Tickets are £5 in advance, or you can Pay What You Want after the show. Tickets: https://link.dice.fm/t4BHkrpOLib *if anyone comes. Loreboys nether say die!

  • 77: Loremen S3 Ep77 - The Penryn Tragedy

    26/08/2021 Duração: 23min

    James returns from a minibreak in Cornwall with a swashbuckling tale of piracy, mistaken identity and being very annoying. Don't worry - all those things apply to the protagonist of the Penryn Tragedy, not James. Prepare yourself for a deadly case of banter-gone-wrong in this Cornish bloodbath. So gather your booty, moisten your Pogs, and join the Loremen on a quest to discover which popular British celebrity is responsible for 70% of accidents at sea. This episode was recorded in front of a live (stream) audience, as part of the Twinge Festival.

  • 75: Loremen S3 Ep75 - Forrest Burgess - The Soap Woman

    04/08/2021 Duração: 36min

    The Soap Woman of Lake Crescent The Loremen visit Twin Peaks country, and in damn fine company. The year is 1940 and Forrest Burgess (off of Astonishing Legends) takes Alasdair and James to the shores of Lake Crescent in Washington State. Plumbing its chilly depths, we uncover a murderer, a hardboiled detective and an underwater corpse-catcher. We also stop off for a malt at Mount Olympus, visit the Hall of American Names and learn why there’s really no such thing as a good bundle. Content Warning: This episode includes details of a real murder case and – implicitly – domestic violence.

  • 74: Loremen S3 Ep74 - The Ghosts in the Window

    29/07/2021 Duração: 35min

    You know the feeling. It's night-time and you're all alone. You get the strangest feeling that if you look into the glass of a darkened window, you might see a scary figure looking back at you?  Well, the tale that Alasdair Beckett-King chills James Shakeshaft with in this episode is ever so similar. Except it's daytime, you're in church with other people, and the figures seem to be acting out a boring play. So... the same. It's the fenestral spectres of Trinity Church in York. Disclaimer: WE CANNOT STRESS ENOUGH that Alasdair found his information from a number of sources. Not you Colin. Really. Loreboys nether say die!

    Poppy Hillstead has entered the podcast! Award winning comic and podcaster (Poppy Hillstead Has Entered The Chat) joins the Loreboys with a tale of the Green Lady who haunted her childhood in the Lincolnshire Wolds. In a shocking twist, the Green Lady turns out to be a) real, b) Spanish and c) kinda clingy. Find out why everyone is talking about Poppy’s pig’s eyes, marvel at the ultimate stag-do-gone-wrong, and listen very carefully – James might just sing! Loreboys nether say die!

    08/07/2021 Duração: 32min

    Alasdair Beckett-King and James Shakeshaft head for the haunted heights of Derbyshire’s High Peak. Somewhere between Light Peak and Dark Peak, betwixt spooky and spoopy, they uncover a tale of drunken revelry and unearthly terror. This episode also features parachute petticoats and an ode to The Pub that borders on (without actually being) poetry. P.S. Let’s make “Noon of Night” a thing. Loreboys nether say die!

    24/06/2021 Duração: 40min

    Alasdair takes us to the flat, flat Fenlands and tells tales of some proper old-school oddballs. The sort of people who like to question the mainstream narrative. The sort of people who, if they were around nowadays, would probably wear a mask but not over their nose. You know the sort. BONUS: This episode also includes a cut-out-and-keep haircut fact that will endear you to your workmates, family and friend. Loreboys nether say die!

    17/06/2021 Duração: 25min

    James takes Alasdair on a guided tour of the Cotswolds’ less famous standing stones. This episode is hot, hot, hot, in many senses of the word. Is it the sultry ambience of a summer evening in James’s shed? Is it the phallic power of these B-list monoliths? Or is it... Swede dreams? Hopefully, we will never find out. Loreboys nether say die!

Warning: James does the full gamut of 'Scottish' accents, ranging from 'Elderly Nanny' to 'He Will Get Chinned If He Goes There Now.' *after the Stone of Scone and Mel Gibson's bum in Braveheart.

  • 67: Loremen S3 Ep67 - Ben Van der Velde - The Dybbuk

    13/05/2021 Duração: 37min

    Ben Van der Velde (Worst Foot Forward Podcast) treats the Loremen to a tour of Jewish mysticism, the dreaded dybbuk and (of course) the world's original robot bouncer - the golem. Plus, we nearly make it through the whole episode without a circumcision joke. Watch out for guest appearances from 'Bugz in the Nut', a whole new superhero franchise, and (of course) Mr. Blobby. Oh, you thought we'd run out of things to say about Saturday night TV in the 90s? You thought wrong. Gotcha! Content Warning: we touch on historic antisemitism and related conspiracy theories.

  • 66: Loremen S3 Ep66 - Hand of Glory

    06/05/2021 Duração: 27min

    If you've executed a criminal and are wondering what to do with their hands, why not get crafting and make yourself a Hand of Glory? This burglar's multi-tool is purported to do all sorts, though the evidence points (like a dead highwayman's cadaverous finger) towards them not really working at all. This episode was originally a livestream, and features a reading from notorious former-guest Chris Cantrill. The good news is, he's not reading poetry. The bad news is, James is.

  • Hand of Glory Recipe Minisode

    28/04/2021 Duração: 07min

    Unlike a normal trailer this features all sorts of bits that won't be in the actual thing! Join us at http://www.twitch.tv/loremempod on 29 April at 8pm BST for Livestream fun!

  • 65: Loremen S3 Ep65 - The Isle of Thanet

    22/04/2021 Duração: 33min

    Ah, the Isle of Thanet! A place of great antiquity. Some say its name comes from "Ynys Thanatos" - the Isle of the Dead - a folkloric curio which James totally neglects to mention, and instead spends most of the episode talking about rollercoasters. But the ups-and-downs of Thanet don't end there. We also have an over-hyped hero, a touchy ghost and someone called Erminburga. Plus at least one "fun fact" and minimum two murdered princes. (The standard Loremen ratio.)  Loreboys nether say die!
