Just got pointed to Professor Jackson Crawford (by the great Matt Colville's latest video (https://youtu.be/j6MLI30n7Ak)). Dr. Crawford is currently a lecturer at UC Berkeley. He's a cowboy, he knows Vikings and is an expert in ancient Scandinavian language, culture and mythology. He is maybe not yet as polished as The Tolkien Professor (http://tolkienprofessor.com/), but I think he is getting there. If you want to know about Odin, Loki and Thor and their people, you should check this guy out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXCxNFxw6iq-Mh4uIjYvufg/featured

- Professor Crawford is good people. My current Old Norse professor is a friend of his, and we have used some of his videos in our class.29w
- Excellent! I hope he is able to climb out of the academic underclass soon. Being a wandering lecturer is no fun, though perhaps a step above an adjunct. When I see someone as accomplished and published who still has no academic home it makes me regret not one moment after I decided to walk away from my academic path.
Ironically, in my spare time from my day job, I ended up an adjunct anyway.
I look forward to many enlightening hours with Dr. Crawford.29w
