This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Ben Mudge, Ben catapulted into the limelight in 2017 with his "Thursday Thorsday '' Instagram posts and his uncanny resemblance to the popular Marvel character played by Chris Hemsworth. As a person with Cystic Fibrosis Ben used this attention two raise awareness for the genetic disorder as well as inspire people to live more active and healthy lives; something he continues to do today as a personal trainer and nutritionist. Together with the boys Ben will be delving deep into the character of Thor and crucially the differences between his Marvel and Mythological portrayal in a new segment we're calling, "Marvel versus Myth." If any of our more musically inclined listeners wanted to take a whack at making a theme for the new segment we would be happy to shout you out on the show. Shan tried but well, it's complicated.  Check out more pictures of Ben at: www.instagram.com/benmudge_ You can also find us on Instagram at: www.instagram.com/nordicmythologypodcast And if you like what we do, and would like to be in the audience for live streams of new episodes to ask questions please consider supporting us on Patreon: www.patreon.com/NordicMythologyPodcast If you would like to join our bi-weekly watch-alongs where Mathias and Daniel watch and commentate along with the popular series Vikings, or get access to our special Storytime episodes covering the saga literature, then all you have to do is join our Patron.
