Awesome Podcast On The Party Train To Valhalla!

I love listening to this show. I am a life long history fanatic, and absolutely adore the Era of Viking, one of the most misunderstood and often blatantly capitalized eras of human history. The guests are engaging, the conversations are enlightening, and I love how this show shines a light on this very interesting, complex, and impactful time. You have done Odin proud and Valkyries shall guide you to his halls!

KTandOti ,

Hoist the sails and be ready to be swept away in the gloriousness of Vikings. Really enjoyed Njals Saga episode. Noah so naturally takes us through all the tantalising details. Subscribe and listen now!
