We’ve been doing Frithcast for three years. Seventy one regular episodes so far. You’ve been listening to a Heathen and a coffee-powered Druid chatter on about modern heathenry with a good sprinking of quotes and geekery for three years. And you, lovely listeners, are the reason that we have. So, we’d like to say thank you, in the only way that we can: to celebrate our third birthday, we’d like to present you with a very special episode. As last years random reel, we present clips of some of the funny moments that didn’t quite make it to the episodes. No shownotes this time, you’ve earned a break.

Thank you from us to you, we hope you enjoy, and carry on listening :)
