S3E17 – The Goat Boy of Surbiton with Harriet Braine

The Goat Boy of Surbiton

Award-winning comedian Harriet Braine steps up to the Loremen plate and tries to convince us that Surbiton is an interesting place, actually.

We meet modern folk legends in the form of a goat-headed cheesemaker, a dead giant and the world’s oldest paper boy. However, we do end up talking about the train station a lot. Such is the overwhelming blandness of Surbiton: “The city suburb that always sleeps”.

If you’re sceptical of Harriet’s tale, check out the greatest headline the Surrey Comey has ever printed:


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft. Featuring Deputy Loreperson Harriet Braine.

Featured image by François Chauveau (circa 1635 –45).

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