In this episode of the Northern Myths Podcast we read about Odin taunting Thor in a poem that compares their personalities. Thor is noble and orderly, perhaps to a fault, and Odin indulges in chaos for his own benefit.

This is the Northern Myths Podcast, an archetypal exploration of the myths and legends of Northern Europe. Join us as we learn about Norse Mythology, Jungian Archetypes, and much more. Dan and Luke are both a part of the Asatru and Heathenry community, and they have a passion for Norse Mythology and Germanic Mythology. Together, we hope to have Norse Mythology explained in a way that can appeal to everyone, and learn how to apply its lessons to everyday life.
