Ep 51 - Berserker: Fact or Fiction with Ruben Terlouw
Feb 18, 2021
Mathias Nordvig and Daniel Farrand

This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Ruben Terlouw, archeologist and one of Heilung's famous black-clad Harii warriors. He and the boys will be conducting an in depth discussion of the Beserker in Viking myth and culture. Were they an elite group of warriors clad in bearskins, or Christian propaganda? And where do the magic mushrooms come in? Bite your shield and get ready because the answers will be complicated!

Currently we are trying to add 100 new Patrons! If that goal is met all Patrons will get to be part of a live streamed watch through of the show Vikings with Mathias and Daniel (and maybe some surprise guests). Members of the audience will get to ask questions and have them answered in real time! If you are a bit financially strapped right now but still want to help us out please consider leaving a review on Apple podcasts as that also really helps. Thank you for listening!
