Great knowledge and interpretation but...

Absolutely brilliant knowledge and interpretation of Norse mythology and religion.
I’m only a few episodes in but here’s the bit and a big but, I genuinely have never heard the words for sure so often in a podcast.
It may just be because of nerves in the first episodes (doesn’t seem that way as hosts are well spoken) however it is quite off putting and slightly irritating.

Awesome podcast

A well-researched, deep dive into the source materiel. Could listen to these guys all day.

No small talk, straight mythology

I was frustrated by other podcasters who insisted on injecting their personality into their mythology podcasts. I love the fact that these guys let the old stories speak for themselves; offering analysis to explain to the listener the meaning behind the passages. Jordan Peterson does this like a master in his biblical series and I’m glad there’s guys like you bringing this approach too.
