Fantastic podcast! Keep up the good work

AKom47 ,

Great listen!

The episode with Dr. Tom Shippey was a fantastic insight into Viking history, Beowulf and Tolkien. Keep up the great work!

lamehhhhhhhhh ,

If Vikings had a late Igor show

This is not your average run of the mill info dump podcast. This man brings you real people how work in the field or have a great understanding of the time the Vikings influenced the world. Be ready for some great interviews and sometimes a different way of looking at that time period. I’ve greatly enjoyed this show and you will too.
