The Lady of the Lake
Award-winning comedian Jenny Collier makes her annual Valentine’s pilgrimage to tell the Loreboys about another Welsh romance. As usual, the story in question proves… disturbing. This week it’s The Lady in the Lake – but not the one you’re thinking of. Prepare for Welsh words that sound rude in English, and English words that are distinctly rude about the Welsh.
Content Warning: This is a very light-hearted episode, but characters in the tale take an attitude towards domestic violence and infant mortality that listeners are unlikely to share. Also, one of the Welsh words sounds REALLY rude.
The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring guest Loreperson Jenny Collier.
