Readers curious to learn about the Old Norse language and Scandinavian mythology would do well to pay Dr. Jackson Crawford's YouTube channel a visit. Crawford is an instructor of Nordic Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder and the coordinator of their Nordic program, and he has also translated The Poetic Edda and The Saga of the Volsungs into English. His YouTube channel features hundreds of videos on various educational topics relating to Old Norse, including Norse mythology, pronunciation lessons, runes, language history, and Norse sagas and poetry, with new videos added often. As an added bonus, many of Crawford's videos are recorded outdoors with views of beautiful Rocky Mountain scenery. Those new to this channel may like to begin with the Most Asked About playlist, which features 13 videos (as of this write-up) providing introductions to speaking, learning, and writing Norse languages as well as to Norse gods and myths. The length of this channel's videos varies widely, with most ranging from five to 15 minutes long and a few that are 40 minutes or longer, and they are intended "for an audience ranging from the curious beginner to the dedicated enthusiast."
