This week Mathias and Daniel are sitting down with Helena Hals, perhaps better known by her internet moniker Viking Helena. Helena is a historian and author known for her hands-on approach to exploring Iron Age Norway. Together with the boys she'll be discussing the history of the Sámi tribes in Northern Norway, which is a subject we have not really touched on before in the show, but are really excited to get into. Will the topic be fascinating enough to finally make Dan listen to an episode of the show? Well, it's complicated.
