We pick up the conversation about Geordie with writer, musician and self-confessed traditional music geek Jon Wilks. Then we discuss our takes on this desperate tale of one woman's quest to save her husband from the gallows.

We then discuss the brilliant submissions from listeners (check out the playlist of all versions below!) and introduce next month's tune, Young William, a light-hearted romp with some slightly questionable ethics.

Hosted by Tim Woodson and Jack The Robot

Keep your eyes out for a bonus episode with Jon coming in the next few days where we go into even more depth on the history of this popular folk song. Also check out The Old Songs Podcast here.
