This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Tanya Lind, a modern day Völva of the Icelandic tradition. Together with the boys she'll be discussing the roots of her practice starting with Völuspá in the Poetic Edda and contrasting with her own contemporary experiences. Also, Dan discusses his childhood fear of ghosts, and a guest appearance by a cat wearing a loud bell (it goes away quickly, don't worry). Are those two things related? Well, it's complicated...
