Three Ravens Podcast

Martin is a co-host and the producer of The Three Ravens Podcast, which launched in March 2023.


On Mondays, episodes focus on one of England's 39 historic counties, exploring the history, folklore and traditions of the area.


Then, most importantly, Martin and co-host Eleanor Conlon take turns to tell new versions of ancient stories from that county.

On Thursdays the pair release Bonus Episodes on diverse themes including the history of magic, mythical creatures, heritage crafts, and true crimes with folkloric twists.



Martin occasionally blogs about film, TV and music.

Not all at once though.

His views are his own.


Martin writes poetry influenced by Romanticism and the Gothic.

Martin also writes non-Three Ravens short stories from time to time.

Unless stated, these examples are exclusive to this website.
