Welcome to Gifts of the Wyrd, a podcast for and about inclusive Heathenry / Norse Germanic pagan paths. 

In this episode, I celebrate the fourth anniversary of the podcast. It's been four years of speaking with interesting people doing interesting things to manifest and hold inclusive paths of the Norse/Germanic traditions.  A big thanks to you all for listening and supporting the people and works that are being done. 

I also bid farewell to PantheaCon. After 26 years, PantheaCon retires with sad farwells and joyful memories. A new organization is currently planning for a convention to be held in the same location and same time frame beginning next year. 

I close out the episode with the full recording of Thunderbarrows Hill by Damh the Bard.  He creates some wonderful music (Check out Spirit of Albion among others) and I'm thankful he gave permission to play this song for you. 

I'm happy to be asked to contribute articles about runes to a few publications including Taufr ezine (@heidhrcraft #taufrzine) and The Cartomancer (@thecartomancermagazine #thecartomancermagazine). 

March 19, 2020: Today, the world is dealing with a pandemic called Coronavirus (COVID-19). Many are isolating and in quarantine status to help flatten the curve of infection rates and allow the virus to subside and not overwhelm medical treatment.  Along with others, I wish good health to you all. Please be safe, follow CDC/WHO guidelines, and treat others with kindness.
