Old Gods and New Pagans

Old Gods and New Pagans

If you are a new pagan looking to learn a little more, this podcast is probably for you. Learn the basics of what it means to be a pagan, heathen, or animist. While I am primarily a Norse Pagan/Animist, I take an all-embracing approach to paganism, and much of what we discuss applies to other forms as well. Listen along while I discuss paganism and more with different guests or just tell a story. I do not pretend to know everything there is to know about the subjects I, and others speak about, but I try to explain everything in plain language and avoid complicated lingo and slang to make the information easy to understand.
