  • S5 Ep27: Loremen S5Ep27 - Leicester Fairies, Nuns, Ghosts and a Big Stone LIVE
    Apr 11 2024
    This year's live show at the Leicester Comedy festival was a delight. The lorefolk were in fine form and James rustled up a folkloric feast, including 'facts' from Geoffrey Hodson's 1925 book Fairies at Work and at Play.

    Sadly, fairy mischief meant that our recorder batteries died towards the end of the show, so the final portion of this episode has been reconstructed from a low-quality backup. You'll hardly notice! Unless you listen to the episode, in which case you'll definitely notice.

    Why not defy the fairy curse and join us for another live show? The Loreboys are going live again in Oxford on May 25th:

    (We'll bring lots of spare AA batteries to this one, we promise.)

  • S5 Ep26: Loremen S5Ep26 - Huntigowk Day and the Loch Ness Hoax
    Apr 4 2024
    April is the time for fooling, especially in Scotland where the first of the month is Huntigowk Day: a day for tartan paint, long stands and other bootless errands. James and Alasdair (a pair of anti-prank killjoys) spent this April Fool's investigating Loch Ness, a body of water which has seen more than its share of hoaxes. But one monster prank from April 1st 1972 really takes the cake.

    Is that cake? Or is it an enormous, half-defrosted elephant seal? Find out when the Loreboys meet an English zoologist up to no good on the banks of Loch Ness.

  • S5 Ep25: Loremen S5Ep25 - The Beast of Belper and the Surrey Puma with Long Cat Media
    Mar 28 2024
    The cats from Long Cat Media came back! Lindsay Sharman and Laurence Owen (who are so award-nominated they seem to have gained another nomination since last week) return. And they bring with them a first-hand sighting of a cryptid. That's right, Laurence saw Derbyshire's elusive Beast of Belper.

    Meanwhile, James Shakeshaft has not been shake-shirking his research duties. He's on the trail of the Surrey Puma, and he's found photographic evidence that will blow you away (if you've never seen a picture of a normal cat before).

fun, entertaining, informative

an awesome, researched, and somewhat silly look at folk tales and ghost stories! 👻
