Mark's Manifesto, an undocumented Berber language, and the plot of John Wick: our favorite trinity in Norse mythology! In this episode, we break down the Norse creation myths, including the creation of Ymir in Ginnungagap, the shaping of the earth by Odin, Vili, and Ve, the chariots of Nott and Dag, the first humans, and the founding of Asgard in Yggdrasil. We also talk about the phases that Norse mythology has gone through, J.R.R. Tolkien's inspiration from these tales, and our major takeaways from these Norse creation myths!
