Wonderful

John and Andy have an immense talent for making the sagas fun and accessible.

Amazing.

I love listening to these at work to get a little tid bit of the sagas before i read them, or after i read them to get more information that I might i might have missed. I would love to take a class from either of them!

I wish the website was a little less confusing though.

A great listen!

As a student of literature, and a former high school English teacher, this podcast feels right at home. Although I know little about saga literature, I feel as though I’ve learned and lived so much listening to these podcasts. If I had the opportunity I’d definitely take a class with either of these two professors!
