S3E36 – Major Weir with Eleanor Morton – LIVE!

Major Weir

Edinburgh’s roll-call of villains is long, crooked and rotten. Like the worst banana. And Major Weir is one of the nastiest. Thomas Weir aka “Angelic Thomas” did not live up to that nickname, as you will soon discover.

Listen, or watch the full stream featuring bonus rambles, a classic Shakeshaft Field Report and some broadband problems:

Eleanor Morton, Edinburgh native, comedian and mystery enthusiast, joined the Loremen livestream to get to the bottom of this devil of a fellow. Stay tuned after the credits to hear a horror story from James’s real life. It is in the top three most disgusting stories he’s told on the pod..


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring guest Loreperson, Eleanor Morton.

Music from La Lettre De Manon Valse played by Megone’s Orchestra, 1905.
