    I love listening to the Viking Podcast, Gary is a lot of fun and his commentary is often insightful.  But….you knew this was coming, I have to say I disagree with his comments about the women’s roles this season. Lagertha is a sensual women, who is not only a warrior but I think she truly enjoys sex, so her time with Ecbert and now with Jarl Kalf are for her pleasure. She is using them as much as they her.
