When I have a question about Heathenry, I go to Ryan Smith. It's as simple as that. His book "The Way of Fire & Ice" is the "intro" book Heathenry has needed for the last twenty years. Ryan has also lived in Edignburgh Scotland (one of my favorite places), and has excellent taste in heavy metal music. We've also done a couple of rituals together that went exceedingly well. Join us as we chat about the state of the Pagan world, weeding out racists in Heathen spaces, and why doom metal is good for you.
