Get Ready for the Viking Apocalypse this Weekend

Jim and Eric mentioned it briefly at the opening of the show today but according to Norse mythology, the Viking apocalypse is set to take place this weekend, Saturday February 22nd.

If the mythology is true, on Saturday, according to Norse legend at least, the series of events leading up to Ragnarok will culminate in an epic battle, where Norse gods Thor, Loki, Odin, Freyr, Hermóðr, will fight. Odin will be killed by Fenrir and the other creator gods will fall.


The Earth will fall into the sea, and life as we know it will cease to exist. It’s not all bad news however, if Ragnarok goes according to plan, legend has it that after all the hell, fire and brimstone, the world will re-emerge new and fertile, and the two human survivors, will be left to re-populate the Earth.

if nothing else, at least it will get us out of the doldrums of this long winter won’t it?
