This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Barbara Jane Davy, author of Introduction to Pagan Studies, Paganism: Critical Concepts in Religion, to talk about her latest work which examines gift giving rituals and their links to ecology. Together with the boys she'll be delving into gift giving rituals in the Viking and modern age and their effect on the communities who take part in them. Barbara was a last minute guest who hopped on to help us out with a last minute cancelation so be prepared for things to be a bit more complicated than usual...
If you would like to read Barbara's paper titled, "Wyrd Ecology," you can find it here!
