When Sean Flude’s wife left him, he sought solace in the cult of Myriology. But unfortunately he killed the cult leader on his first day as a member.

Do you have a special skill that could deter a criminal? Dennis Earnshaw does. Magic. Earnshaw appeared on variety TV shows throughout the 70s and 80s with his glamourous assistant and wife, Linda.

Michael Spicer's It Happened To Me... Coming Soon
Matt Tiller, with 'help' from his 'executive producer' Michael Spicer, is starting a podcast. This is the podcast. And this podcast has almost started.
Michael Spicer is very talented. His deadpan style, self-deprecating humour is very good and I look forward to seeing him live
Vinyl, Magic, Cult
Really enjoying this podcast: so original and very funny. Shame I can’t get anything more than the first episode on Apple Podcasts app so have listened to the rest via Amazon music.
Funny pod from a talented guy
I’m really enjoying these. Reminds me a bit of Down the Line on Radio 4 - this would fill a half hour comedy slot well - give him a show, BBC!
