    Loremen S4 Ep31 - The Wold Rangers with Amy Gledhill

    Loremen S4 Ep31 - The Wold Rangers with Amy Gledhill

    Beloved semi-sausage Amy Gledhill returns to the pod to meet the Wold Rangers of Yorkshire's East Riding. The wold's green lanes were once famous for Snaffling Jock, Mushroom Charlie, Slapface Ned and more strange, unique characters: nomadic gentlefolk around whom legends grew.

    We run into a locked-barn mystery and encounter the haunted skull of Poor Sister Anne. Don't throw it in manure! She hates that.

    If you live near Driffield, visit the Wold Rangers Way!

    This episode was edited by Mark Chatterley of In Ear Production.

    Loremen S4 Ep30 - The Blue Man of Bedfordshire

    Loremen S4 Ep30 - The Blue Man of Bedfordshire

    It's time for a Select Your Own Escapade! (Our non-trademark-infringing alternative to a Choose Your Own Adventure.)

    James lets Alasdair decide the route through the county of Bedfordshire and the boys encounter four local oddities: from a lost member of the Blue Man Group (AKA the Cerulean Chaps Team) to Henry VIII's most boring mate.

    Loremen S4 Ep29 - Jan Reynolds and The Devil

    Loremen S4 Ep29 - Jan Reynolds and The Devil

    Crash! And the church steeple crumbles to dust. Parishioners - dead! The sermon - a write off.

    This episode raises many questions. Is James Shakeshaft folklore's answer to Quenetin Taratantino? Was The Great Thunderstorm of Widecombe-in-the-Moor the work of ball lightning, or the Devil himself? Can the loreboys go a full episode without a Bowie impression?

    (Sadly, only one of those questions is answered. And the answer is: no, of course not.)

It’s a podcast

As described

A *perfect* podcast

Loremen is PEERLESS as podcasts go. Flawless. Sumptuous. It’s gently silly, effortlessly funny - it’s actually so perfect that it makes me sad because then the rest of life isn’t and could never be quite so great in comparison.

New stuff

Please do more. They’re hilariously non-gripping and non-informative. One of my favorite podcasts.
