This week we continue our discussion of family and frith from the previous week’s show.

In this episode, we discuss a range of topics relating to how we as heathens relate to our families on a number of different levels, from funerary arrangements to health-care and beyond. We also discuss what is meant by the word ‘family’ in the context of family by blood vs. family by deed.  

Name That Announcer

July 8th, 2012

We have a winner already in the Name That Announcer contest for episode 100! Symone Stinson (no relation) correctly answered that the original announcer was the voice of the Ecto Radio Sexbot 2000. That lasted about 5 episodes and was replaced by our permanent announcer, Bob’s wife Dana the Sane!

On this, our 100th episode, we look back at the previous 99 episodes with some of our favorite and not-so-favorite shows. John Mainer joins us via Skype, and we of course meander on to topics like current events in the heathen community.

A continuation of our discussion regarding the Jotun as recipients of cultic practice, with guest Cat Heath joining us in the fray. Also, the missing heathen girl Alli was found in Detroit, Michigan. We are pleased for her and her family that she is returning to them, and we thank you all for spreading the […]
