We are joined by Lee Accomando, host of the Viking Age Podcast! His show is one of the longest running Norse/Viking themed shows, and he certainly paved the way for us in a lot of ways so we're excited to have him on! We had a great discussion, talking about how his podcast has developed over the years and hearing some of his favorite stories, including the discovery of Iceland and some of the exploits of Gunnhild, Mother of Kings.

Some of our favorite products of theirs include their great shirts which we wear all the time, their beard care products, and their excellent drinking horns.
