• Summary

  • Ásatrú is the belief in the Norse gods. It is an indigenous, European religion. Think Vikings, Thor, Odin, etc. The etc. is what I talk about. There's a ton of irresponsible bozos spitting out their opinions as facts online about the people, practices, beliefs, and history just for virtual likes and subscribers. I'm here to help you learn the ugly, the bloody, the funny, the whole truth... so help me gods. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/asatruacademics/support

Informative and Funny!

I have been thoroughly enjoying listening to this Podcast right on the heels of completing both Eddas and listening to Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology. It brings together thoughts and questions that I may have missed or asked during my read-through, and performed in such an entertaining way by the hostess! I definitely recommend for anyone with even a passing interest in Asatru, or for anyone looking for a new perspective on life through the lens of Asatru practice.

down to earth

I love the fact that the narrator reminds you to step back and to consider what you see. read, or heard is BS or potentiality true using inductive reasoning. including her own statements.
