We are joined by Dr. Carolyne Larrington, Professor of Medieval European Literature at Oxford University. She has authored many fantastic books related to European Mythology as well as one of the best translations of the Poetic Edda currently available. We discuss many stories including the Hjaðningavíg, the Christianization of the Norse lands, the nature of Odin, and much more.
