S4E51 – Guy of Warwick

Guy of Warwick

Man vs Cow! The epic battle continues.

James tells the romantic tale of the English knight Guy of Warwick, who (rather unromantically) killed a massive cow. The cow was very, very angry and bigger than a van, so don’t judge Guy too harshly. He also killed a handful of dragons, but we skip over them. It was all a witch’s fault, really.

Listen carefully, and you will learn about a rude flower, what sneezes mean and what NOT to do with children’s teeth.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
