12.16.2021 - By Nordic Mythology Podcast
This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Dr. Jenny Butler, Jenny is a well known folklorist and the leading authority on the academic study of contemporary Paganism in the Irish context. Together with the boys she'll be digging into such questions as: What is the connection between pagans and the pentagrams? Are the snakes in the Saint Patrick story analogous to pagans? And perhaps most important, what is Mathias's dog barking at and is it aliens? ... look it's complicated.
