    While the religion of the of the Old Norse are no longer widely practiced, the stories of their gods and monsters still live on in our modern culture. The Norse myths have been the inspiration for a great many artistic endeavors, from Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen to Santa Monica Studio's 2018 God of War. Let's see just how imbedded these stories are in our daily lives.

Fun and Interesting

I have listened to the first two episodes and am will definitely be listening to more. The content is interesting and gives deeper background on historic persons that I knew surface information about. The “deeper dive” was intriguing and fleshed out people who I had heard of for decades. Brian and Stephen are very professional and easy to listen to and convey the feeling that they enjoy each other and the material that they are presenting. I will definitely be listening to all of these podcasts. Two thumbs up!!
