S3E87 – Shetland Tales with Marjolein Robertson

Shetland Tales with Marjolein Robertson

Alasdair and James return to the furthermost reaches of (what we jokingly call) the United Kingdom. It’s Shetland! This time we’ve found ourselves a local guide in the form of comedian, storyteller and improvisor – Marjolein Robertson. Learn why you should never mention a ‘beniman’ aboard a boat and why there’s no such thing as a free shirt.

Somehow, the loreboys manage to run afoul of an ancient sea god, oil riggers and – their mortal enemy – the Federation Against Copyright Theft (FACT).


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring Guest Loreperson, Marjolein Robertson.

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