We interview Eric Schumacher, author of the Hakon's Saga series of books. We discuss the history behind his books and the Christianization of Scandinavia, as well as the hero archetype and its influence on his writing.

This is the Northern Myths Podcast, an archetypal exploration of the myths and legends of Northern Europe, including Norse mythology, the Finnish Kalevala, and more. If you'd like to support the show you can support us on Patreon here: Northern Myths Podcast Patreon
