S3E7 – The Third Eye

The Third Eye

Alasdair brings an “account” of how to open your third eye. And it’s squirm-inducing stuff! Meanwhile, James can’t get over the fact that Tibetan lama sounds a lot like Tibetan llama. For a whole episode.

There’s also a man whose name is Tuesday Lobsang Rampa. Really what more could you want…

  • A portentous owl? You got it.
  • A yeti cameo? You got that too.
  • A cat with a surname? You got that three. That’s one per eye.

We, like the ambassador who hosted that reception that time, are really spoiling you. Enjoy!

P.S. Don’t forget to let us know your Cuthbert Shields Saint Name* in the comments! It’s your favourite saint e.g. “Ivel” and the last half of your home town e.g. “Don”.

*Check the last episode – The Ghost of Cuthbert Shields – for context.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
