This podcast is dedicated to sending out short weekly podcasts of selected english translations from the Eddas and Sagas. We believe that the original works were part of an oral history that can be best brought to life via telling.
We have finally moved everything over to our new host and a new feed for the podcast. This page will remain up for about another month or so. Again we hope that the initial move does not cause too many problems for our listeners but we feel that in the long run we will be able to provide a better podcast for you. We have already read the Jomsvikings and are now starting our reading of the Volsung Saga on this new site. Enjoy!OUR NEW SITE IS spokenlore.podbean.comSUBSCRIBE TO OUR NEW FEED AT http://spokenlore.podbean.com/feed
