If you were worried season (series) 4 had become too historically accurate - worry no more!   This episode will tickle not only your ribs, but your spine. (That's a 2 for 1 offer on torso stimulation.) Lower Swell offers ghosts that will make you go "ooh" as well as double entendres that will make you go "oo-er missus." Plus an immovable stone that...

  • S4 Ep2: Loremen S4 Ep 2 - The Stone of Destiny

    09/06/2022 Duração: 34min

    The Stone of Destiny, AKA the Stone of Scone, has been stolen more times than Alasdair has had cold Scottish dinners. In this episode we uncover a daring Scottish heist and a Scotsman's unexplained demise. That's right, unable to compete with James's recent two-parter, ABK has frantically squeezed a couple of tales into a single episode. Learn how to pronounce Scone correctly(ish) and how to pronounce a lot of other words incorrectly. Hear Ian Hamilton's account of the theft of the Stone of Destiny in his own words here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJLosu3SqCs And for gawd's sake, get the suspension looked at on that Ford Anglia.

  • S4 Ep1: Loremen S4 Ep 1 - William Adams, The First Englishman in Japan Part 2

    02/06/2022 Duração: 38min

    It's season four of Loremen! It's 4oremen. 4men? Either way, we're one man short of opening a profitable burger chain. And it's time for William Adams 2: The Secret of the Ooze. The first Englishman in Japan is starting to get comfortable in his new home/prison, but he is about to run into Jesuits, the East India Company and a particularly unpleasant maritime pornographer. Prepare yourself for a tale of hubris, smooth-talkers and a very rude misreading of 'Three Mile Island'. For a more fulsome (and less silly) telling of the story, James's main source for this episode was Giles Milton's wonderful book, Samurai William. Content Warning: No new willies are pulled off in this episode. But we do reference the willy-pulling in S3 Ep107. Loreboys nether say die!

  • S3 Ep107: Loremen S3 Ep 107 - William Adams, The First Englishman in Japan Part 1

    19/05/2022 Duração: 50min

    Content warning - we say "willy" a LOT In 1600, William Adams was the first Englishman to visit Japan. Little was known about Japan at that time, apart from IN Japan where they knew pretty much all about it. In this, Part One of Adams's tale, we follow what must be one of history's most meandering, misbegotten and (probably) malodorous sea voyages. They really did not plan it well. The Loreboys are also exploring unknown territory with this, our first 2-part episode. The full story of William Adams was simply too long and revolting for a single episode. Part Deux will be with you in two weeks' time, because we're going to take next week off and have a little rest. Loreboys nether say die!

  • S3 Ep106: Loremen S3 Ep106 - The Witches of Wallsend

    12/05/2022 Duração: 28min

    Seaton Delaval Hall was once home to Sir Francis Blake Delaval - the man who puts the "pranks" in "I am sick of this guy's terrible pranks". But, although living with Sir Francis must have been a nightmare, it doesn't compare to the gruesome tale he told of the Wallsend Witches. At the stroke of midnight, the Loreboys meet a gaggle of hags in the old church. We learn why Hadrian's Wall is so jumpable, and how to spot Jeremy Beadle in disguise. Meanwhile, James Shakeshaft's run of bad luck... continues. www.patreon.com/loremenpod Loreboys nether say die!

    05/05/2022 Duração: 25min

    The Loreboys share two legends from the other side of the extremely big pond (the Atlantic). Shakeshaft goes west to Yosemite National Park and encounters the Fresno Nightcrawlers. Meanwhile, ABK meets Rhode Island's Public Universal Friend. This episode was originally a livestream/shambles, beset by jetlag and the untimely demise of the Loremen laptop/loretop.

  • S3 Ep104: Loremen S3 Ep104 - The Legend of Maud's Elm, Cheltenham

    14/04/2022 Duração: 34min

    Alasdair brings James the "pathetic" legend of Maud's (or Maude's) Elm, a story as thrilling as it is obviously made up. You've got your heroines: tragic. Your lords: wicked. Your uncles: damnable! Plus, someone's dear old mum will be cast out into the street. And we're talking olden days streets here, so that's 80% poo. Listeners will also discover who really killed Tsar Nicholas I, and what size of potato was considered noteworthy in the mid-19th century. (Spoiler alert: it wasn't that big.)

  • S3 Ep100: Loremen S3 Ep100 - Danny Robins - The Cauld Lad of Hylton

    10/03/2022 Duração: 48min

    The Loremen are joined by supernatural pod king* Danny Robins! Danny is the voice behind Haunted, The Battersea Poltergeist and Uncanny, as well as being an award-winning playwright. And he brings James and Alasdair a little-known North-Eastern legend: The Cauld Lad of Hylton. Was the Cauld Lad a ghost? A sprite? A murder victim? Or just an annoying guy who didn’t know how ducks work? Darting between Newcastle and Sunderland, we also encounter a somewhat smutty version of the Fish and the Ring, and a carefully censored account of Pollard’s Boar. *He’s king of supernatural podcasts NOT king of the pod people.

  • S3 Ep99: Loremen S3 Ep99 - Talking Heads

    03/03/2022 Duração: 36min

    Since the dawn of time, humanity has dreamed of one thing: making a little robot head that talks in a funny voice. Alasdair and James chart the history of that dream, from Friar Bacon's diabolical brazen head to Professor Faber's ill-fated "Euphonia". With more body-horror than you would normally expect in an audio-based medium, it's the story of some of the strangest head-cases England has ever seen.
