Episode 36k – Laxdaela Saga (chapters 52-58)


In this episode, Bolli finds out what happens when you kill your foster brother. We discuss Thorgerd Egilsdottir’s lust for vengeance, how the avengers assemble, and Gudrun’s handling of yet another loss. This episode also features some special guest appearances by some familiar faces from Saga Thing past and the first appearance of Bolli Bollason.

When all is finished, we summons Bolli before the court and review the evidence to assess his character. Step into the conversation on our social media:

  1. Guys – John. and Andy – have you considered dumping Twitter and moving to Mastodon?

    Tom, the crazy old guy who stopped you on the street in Iceland in 2018.


    • Hi Tom,
      Andy here. I’d prefer to dump Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram altogether. That’s just me being a grumpy old man who doesn’t like social media. Of course, they’re useful for their broad reach and the community already established there. We’ve made great connections using those platforms and have friendships there that we’d hate to lose.

      That said, we’re far more active on Discord, which works well for what we do.

      As for Mastodon, I did play with making an account and then decided I just don’t want to manage one more social media page. Same thing happened with Tumblr. That’s a decent fit for us too. Alas, I can’t be bothered with either until it feels more necessary.
