This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Eirik Storesund, the content creator behind Brute Norse, a blog and podcast dedicated to dispelling the many popular misconceptions about the Viking Age and Norse culture, and bridging the gap between scholarship and public perception. Together they will be discussing the riot in the US capitol last week, and the unfortunate public misconception of certain Norse symbols and cultual elements as a result. We've covered misappropriation of Viking symbols and the unfortunate ties with white supremacy before, and quite honestly we are sad to have to do so again so early in the year. However, given these unfortunate events though we don't really feel we have a choice. Lighter topics next week, we promise.

Currently we are trying to add 100 new Patrons! If that goal is met all Patrons will get to be part of a live streamed watch through of the show Vikings with Mathias and Daniel (and maybe some surprise guests). Members of the audience will get to ask questions and have them answered in real time! If you are a bit financially strapped right now but still want to help us out please consider leaving a review on Apple podcasts as that also really helps. Thank you for listening!
