Dr. Mathias Nordvig on Old Norse Lore and Masculinity

Dr. Mathias Nordvig is an Old Norse scholar and author and you can follow his work on YouTube  @Mathias Nordvig . I invited him on Start The World to talk about masculinity, heroism and leadership in the Old Norse lore, and he shared a few of his favorite examples from the Hávamál, but we ended upo having a long and wide-ranging discussion about the character of Odin, the nature of Thor, the questionable place of the Vanir in the lore, and how there is no racism or race preservation implied or suggested in the lore, or in heathenry itself.
