12th podcast - more local ghost stories!

Can you believe, we're already up to our twelfth podcast. And they said it wouldn't last! Well, there's lots more where this came from, and this time we share more local ghost stories from the comfort of a Skype call.

Will we go off on tangents all the time and keep inserting silly sound effects? You betcha...

Live podcast from Hagg Hill

You've read about our adventures on Hagg Hill before (see here).

Well, not content with our written account, we decided to return to the scene of the crime and record a live podcast really late at night (it was nearly 10 o'clock!). Did we finally find the hag of Hagg Hill, or did we just chat about her bloomers?

Happy 2nd day of 2011!

We're so considerate here at 2MG. We decided to wait until the avalanche of New Year's Greetings died down before conveying our own best wishes for 2011.

It's nothing to do with the fact that we forgot to post this yesterday ... nosiree ... not us...

2MG Christmas podcast!

It's here! Our very first podcast Christmas special! It comes to you live from Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield amidst the hustle and bustle and all the festive anticipation.

Or maybe not. Maybe we couldn't be arsed and stayed at home instead, swapping seasonal ghost stories and telling Christmas cracker jokes...

Hans and Olaf from Bovaria

Wow! The plot thickens. Just received this email from Mike:

Hi Wooders,

I don't believe it! So there I was checking out loads of dusty old files in the 2MG Mansions basement, when I suddenly came across the attached picture. Totally up to you if you feel you'd like to use it.

Reading the background information, it appears that after Sir Reggie Droppings received the charter to set up 2MG from Queen Victoria, two members of the original team came from Bovaria. Hans and Olaf Biggiedickiesonn were sent out to investigate the Beast of Baildon Moor, but whilst nothing is mentioned as to what really happened, it appears that Hans returned to live out his days in Bovaria, whilst Olaf went to live in Sheffield. It seems that he opened a joke shop in Fulwood called Olaf A Minute!

Just as a side note, I discovered that many years later in the '60s, Sister Betty of The Holy Order of the Bearded Lady and Donkey equally tried to look into the case of the Beast of Baildon Moor, but with no success.

All amazing stuff, isn't it?


Mike ... covered in dust!

PS. Forgot to mention, I think that Olaf is the one on the right.

PPS. I was just thinking, do you think it possible that either Hans or Olaf were ever married? I couldn't find any details of a next of kin. I'll keep looking.
