Customer Reviews

Fans of medievalia (is that a word?) will enjoy this

Whether your main avenue into the medieval world is gaming, Monty Python, J.R.R. Tolkien, George R.R. Martin, The History Channel's Vikings, or strictly academic historical and literary interests, this podcast is a fun and highly informative look at the Icelandic sagas and Icelandic history. John and Andy have tied together a lot of loose threads in my own understanding of the period and the art it has inspired, always in a way that is first and foremost entertaining.

What will you podcasters think of next?

I've always had that big thick book of Icelandic Sagas sitting on my shelf, but never was interested enough to pick it up. After listening to this podcast, I can't put it down. Inteligent, informative, with just the right amount of Monty Python references and silly accents, this podcast will teach you all about feud culture, kennings (hope I spelled that right), and icelandic literary motifs. Not to mention Scottish giants, french taunting, and underwater knife fights with bears that swim competitively and understand 13th century Icelandic...

great podcast

Nice job guys. I would like Neal’s Saga, and Egil’s Saga covered.
