Brute Norse - "Walking Backwards into the Future"

Eirik Storesund is an Old Norse philologist, writer, and artist from Southwest Norway who has created an artful and intellectually rewarding podcast called  @Brute Norse  . He calls what he does "Scandifuturism," in which he brings old myths to life in a new, engaging and mischievous (he might say "trollish") way. I let this podcast run longer than normal because I was having a really good time talking with him about myth and paganism and art and ritual and the relationship between man and his environment.

It was a great conversation, and if you're interested in these subjects at all or want to hear an amusing essay followed by a scholarly and no BS presentation about Valhalla, check out his episode "Fight For Your Right To Party" on Soundcloud.
