S5E23 – The Black Dog of Devon and Dorset

The Black Dog of Devon and Dorset

[RECORD SCRATCH] I suppose you’re wondering how we got here? Well, it all started when James told Alasdair the story of a spectral hound that dwells on the border of Devon and Dorset. (AKA In-Dorset and Next-Dorset.)

A sighting of the black dog could be a bad omen, but it might just make you rich. (There is actually a third option, but that involves helium and a peculiarly shaped nozzle…)

No dogs were inflated during the recording of this episode.

Join us for another Loremen Live in Oxford on 25th May:


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.

This episode was edited by Joseph Burrows – Audio Editor.
