We are joined by Michelle Nickolaisen, who takes us through the nuances of several European goddesses including Freya and Perchta. We also chat about their childhood experiences with paganism, getting the wrong metaphors from the Chronicles of Narnia, and Sigrid the Hotty (we mean, Haughty).


For more information on the goddesses we talked about in this episode, check out the fantastic article that Michelle wrote!
