Loremen S3 Episode 8

Jenny Collier | The Mabinogion

Jenny Collier returns! After last year’s Welsh Valentine’s hilarity (pimp out of pimp across the board) we brought our favourite Welsh comedian back into the studio to give us the lowdown on an actual epic.

We cover book two of The Mabinogion (Mabinogion 2: The Legend of Curly’s Gold). The Mabinogion is a 12th Century text recounting ancient Welsh myths and legends. As you can imagine, it scores highly in Naming. 

Content Warnings: Two non-Welsh people doing their “best” Welsh accents, horse mutilation, references to Love Island.
