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!

Saga + Podcast = Happy Day

I love reading the sagas and was delighted to find a podcast that discusses them. I don't think there are a lot of podcasts that delve into the sagas but John and Andy do a great job and really know their respective subject. I enjoy the wit and humor, the insights into details, and the overall love for the sagas that the hosts clearly portray in their effort. By far my favorite podcast.
