GOING MEDIEVAL ON YOUR SNÆFELLSNES
Snufflegrass? Schnozzlefat? Snookerflip? No, it's Snæfellsnes week! Lydia and Jonas get real with the story of Guðríður the far-traveller, a 10th-century bad-ass Snæfellsnesian lady who went through husbands like kleenex, summered in Greenland, wintered in Manhattan, dropped in on her friend the pope in Rome, probably met an alien, and definitely pulled some legendary party tricks involving a freaky-deaky fortune-teller, some cat-skin gloves and a bowl of "goatmeal" (that's oatmeal with goat's milk, in case you're wondering). Later in the episode: Lydia and Jonas discuss what to do when visiting Guðríður's old stomping ground, Snæfellsnes peninsula.

In this episode we mention a few places to visit.
Go nuts with our Google Map (we made it just for you with ♥︎)
- Wiki page on Guðríður - Just the facts, ma'am. Somehow this page misses all the fun parts of her life.
- The Vinland Sagas - If you're interested in reading the sagas of the first Norse people who traveled into America, this is a great translation. Don't get it confused with the Japanese Manga series by the same name (which could actually turn out to be a happy little accident if you're a Manga fan).
- Top 5 Vikings listicle according to MHM - Although she wasn't really a Viking and this is a really terrible "artist rendering", big ups to Military History Monthly for giving their #1 viking slot to a bad-ass lady.
