Utog boy ,

Hard to follow

I am only on episode 5 I know it is early but I am afraid that all the podcast that I have heard has been very hard to follow. The content has less to do with Norse Mythology or anything. I know it’s still early but I might just give this podcast a pass. There’s probably 5 minutes of actual Norse mythos being discussed in every episode.
