Ep 33 - The Anatomy of Dragons with Jonas Lau Markussen
This week *Mathias** *and* **Daniel** *get to seriously nerd out with Joans Lau Markussen author of The Anatomy of Viking Art the book which helped get Daniel started designing his mead horns. Together Jonas and Mathias will cover tons of Viking art history theories from Lindisfarne to the existence of Dragons. It's going to be a good time. We know we've been doing a lot of serious themed episodes recently and we really appreciate people hearing what we have to say. One of the big reasons Mathias and Daniel started this podcast in the first place was to educate people, not just about the myths, but also how these ancient traditions are being carried forward, both the good and the bad. We feel we've done that pretty well with our last batch of episodes, but this next batch is going to be more focused on Viking history and culture and less on contemporary social issues. Frankly we all could use a break, and we thought you all might appreciate one as well. Also this week Mathias gets to try out his new mic setup  for the first time thanks to our amazing supporters over at Patreon! If you like what we do and want to help us keep improving the content we bring to you then head over and consider chipping in if you can, seriously everything helps. And if you happen to be among out American listeners please remember to vote it's actually quite important: That's it! If you've made it this far thanks for reading, listening, and generally supporting what we do. We really appreciate you all.

The Body After Eating Several Pounds Licorice Candy

Video version of this podcast: Chubbyemu video of this case: Laxative Brownie video from 2017: Tweet me:  IG me:  FB me: Licorice candy has glycyrrhizin which increases cortisol (stress hormone) levels in the body. This causes hypokalemia. Hypo- low. Kal- kalium (potassium). emia- presence in blood. Potassium signals muscle relaxation. Low potassium, low relaxation. Heart can't relax, then it stops.  Real licorice candy is not easy to get in the United States. It's not at big chain grocery stores. Most of what you can buy from the big brands is licorice flavored, and won't do this. References: A 54-Year-Old Man with Sudden Cardiac Arrest. N Engl J Med 2020; 383:1263-1275.
