    In our last episode, "The Spooky Tale of the Ghosts of Cambridge", I said I read a short story by M R James, a highly regarded Cambridge scholar who is best know for his Ghost stories which are considered some of the best in the genre.

Excellent

Brilliantly delivered and very entertaining. Really enjoying these. Although the welsh pronunciation needs a bit of work ;).

Narshada ,

Fantastic show, great hosts.

John has a great voice for radio and delivers thoughtful and fascinating researched pieces while Louise randomly interjects her hilarious comments. A personal favourite was the discussion about weresheep, and whether it would be worse as a man with a sheep’s head, or a sheep with a man’s head. I laughed out loud on the train.
