S3E101 – St Columba and the Monster with Seán Burke

St Columba and the Monster

Happy St Patrick’s Day! To celebrate, we tell the monster-packed tale of Ireland’s rival patron, St Colmcille (aka St Columba). Joining us is the frankly hilarious Seán Burke, an actual Irish comedian, who is remarkably forgiving about the Lorebois Irish-ish accents.

Pronunciation fans will be overjoyed to learn we say “rhododendron” no less than 4 different ways during the episode.
