In this episode of Saga Thing, John and Andy celebrate the penultimate summary episode…again. Things got out of hand when Andy took over preparations and he made a whole episode out of the story of Egil’s son, Thorstein. Never fear, it’s a great episode all the same. This one will feel more like a family saga than what we’ve had so far in Egil’s Saga. We’ve got property disputes, arguments over who can graze their cattle where, slaves doing bad things in the name of their master, bloodshed, lawsuits, and regional politics. All the things you’ve been missing since we started Egil’s adventures in Norway. We promise you won’t be disappointed with this one.
And, we’ve got a special announcement. Come see Saga Thing Live at the Scandinavian Cultural Center in West Newton, MA on Friday, January 31st at 7pm. John and Andy are uniting live and in person to revisit the subject of The Vikings in the New World. It’s free! Register now:

In this episode you guys joked about doing a tour of Iceland, hitting all the sites from the sagas. Well, just to let you know that such a tour already exists!
Some friends of ours joined us on that tour in 2018, and it was FANTASTIC.
Of course there are saga tours. But do these tours have John and Andy’s charm and wit? And what about our long-windedness and tendency to bicker with each other? Hmmm?
