The Brisk Lad
Play • 50 min
We discuss our takes on The Brisk Lad, a bleak character portrait of a man driven to sheep-stealing in order to feed his family.

We then discuss the brilliant submissions from listeners (check out the playlist of all versions below!) and introduce next month's tune, Geordie, a ballad about a woman's fight for her husband's freedom.

Hosted by Tim Woodson and Jack The Robot
