S5E36 – The Old Man of Monterey Bay

The Old Man of Monterey Bay

The Loremen return to the good old U S of America.

Inspired by a gift from a listener, the boys head to Monterey Bay, CA, and tangle with a whole bunch of sea beasts. (Or should that be school? Pod? Flock? What is the collective noun for aquatic cryptids?) We meet the monkey-faced Old Man of Monterey (AKA Bobo) and some real-life red-haired sea serpents.

So join us, under the sea! It’s enchanting!*

*Yes that is a veiled Back To The Future reference. Yes, James wrote this blurb.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
