Discussions of Heathen shamanic, magic, and divination practices in a modern context. GOTW promotes and welcomes inclusive Heathenry and stands against racist and bigoted ideals & practices. Instagram: @wyrdgifts1 Twitter: @wyrdgifts

Episode 13 welcomes Alaric Albertsson and Taren David Martin to the Wyrd hall. We discuss Anglo-Saxon Heathenry, Alaric's re-release of his book, A Handbook of Saxon Sorcery & Magic, and the Martin Rune Deck, an Anglo-Saxon rune set created by Alaric and Tarin. 

Production note: we had feedback on a microphone that we could not adjust. We continued on and I tried to minimize it as much as possible (many hours of post-production).  I hope that I got it to a point where you can hear and understand Alaric well enough. Please forgive the tech difficulties.
