S3E48 – The Sea Beasts of Shetland

The Sea Beasts of Shetland

Alasdair leads us off the beaten track and across the sea to the northernmost part of the UK: the Shetland Islands.

Prepare yourself for a veritable ‘Who’s Who‘ of sea monsters, a ‘Where’s That‘ of obscure place-names and a ‘Why’s This‘ of supposedly Scottish accents.

Watch out for an unexpected number of bees, and learn how intimidating Norwegian applause can get…


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
