The Rotten Roots of Yggdrasil: Mythology meets reality in Sweden’s COVID19 pandemic

Season 1, Ep. 14

It is difficult to take something like the Norse gods and provide a fresh new look at the story of Ragnorok though a COVID-lens. However, Luis Paul Delgado de Mendoza's novel The Rotten Roots of Yggdrasil: Mythology meets reality in Sweden’s COVID19 pandemic is a mighty good effort.


As a reader, you will gain a new insight into the relationship between Thor and Loki, Odin and Freya and of course the Valkyrie.


Natasha and Damien were pleasantly surprised by this complex and detailed story.


Rating out of five masks:

Natasha: 4.5/5 😷

Damien: 4.5/5 😷
