‘Gretchen Ruins Heathenry’ YouTube series announcement
Hi friends! Contrary to the world’s ambitions, I am not dead. I’ve been away from the blog because I’ve got some projects going on, one of which is this here: I started a new YouTube channel, and started a series. I’m calling it Gretchen Ruins Heathenry, and it’s gonna be an exploration of the history, folklore, religious practices, and languages of Northern Europe, with fun supplemental bits here and there.
Our first video, Who Were the First Heathens?, is embedded down there at the bottom of the post, and it presents some conjecture about where and when Northern European paganism originated, so if you want to learn about that, give it a watch and listen to my horrible Man Voice™ narrate at you over a slideshow of relevant pictures. The next things I’ve got coming down the pipe will (probably) be a discussion about sexual mores in the early Medieval period, and then an analysis of Egil Skallagrimsson’s Saga (b/c he is bae).
Be sure and subscribe and share and whatnot if you like it, and/or if you’re sick and tired of the narrative being dominated by fash trash.
