A Decent Summary with a few minor errors

The narration was okay with some more obvious pronunciation issues (but it was close enough). The topic itself is a very quick summary of a Norse culture (circa 10th to 12th centuries). For the most part, I would have been happier with a little more as some of the brief treatments might lead to a few minor misunderstandings and some would just be more interesting IMHO if etymology were included … such as what exactly the names of each of the nine realms actually mean.

Additionally there are a few careless comments that imply Easter was synchronized from a Norse holiday instead of the other way around (based solely upon the “bunny” avatar). No serious scholar that I know of would make that connection (although it is pretty common on social media). There are some comparisons between Egyptian myths and Norse myths that are a bit of a stretch with no real support other than similarities (which would be expected for any Indo-European cultures), so fun to think about but not really accepted by any consensus. All that said … this was a pretty fair introduction to the topic and I would recommend it.
