S3E37 – The Kappa with Yuriko Kotani

The Kappa

Yuriko Kontani joins the Loreboys to talk about the Kappa – a quirky Japanese river-monster with some nasty appetites. Webbed hands and a bowl on its head are the least of your worries.

In spite of our best efforts, this episode contains much talk of bottoms, bumholes and farts. So if you’re listening with kids, be warned that they’re going to love it.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring guest Loreperson, Yuriko Kotani.

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