S3E67 – The Prague Golem with Ben Van der Velde

The Prague Golem (feat. the Dybbuk)

Ben Van der Velde (Worst Foot Forward Podcast) treats the Loremen to a tour of Jewish mysticism, the dreaded dybbuk and (of course) the world’s original robot bouncer – the golem. Plus, we nearly make it through the whole episode without a circumcision joke. Watch out for guest appearances from ‘Bugz in the Nut’, a whole new superhero franchise, and (of course) Mr. Blobby. Oh, you thought we’d run out of things to say about Saturday night TV in the 90s? You thought wrong. Gotcha!

Content Warning: we touch on historic antisemitism and related conspiracy theories.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring Guest Loreperson, Ben Van der Velde.
