Yesterday I was interviewed for the Mark Forrest Show which was doing a segment on the Werewolf of Hull or, as it is now commonly referred to, ‘Old Stinker’. You can listen to my five minutes of fame here. (I’m on at 2 hrs 44 mins but the report starts about 10 minutes before that).
I fear my scepticism and academic nerdiness was a little too much but hopefully you enjoy my insights. I’d like to think I came across as a British version Dana Scully: “I want to believe”. I can’t say I’m that convinced that searching for a folkloric creature that isn’t necessarily a werewolf on a full moon seems that effective given that the original Old Stinker pre-dates the relationship between the lunar cycle and lycanthropy but I look forward to being proved wrong. I’ve also proved that I must never go into PR as I entirely forgot to plug the OGOM Project; I’m absolutely terrible at aggrandisement.
