Synopsis: This week on “Learn Me Something,” Aaron and Rich delve into animal intelligence, the differences between different species, and how they’ve developed.
In the Early Days of Humanity, Odin sat high in the Halls of Valhalla, occasionally meddling in the affairs of man. However, even for the keeper of All-Knowledge, he would be blind in one eye Without the Ravens Thought and Mind, who sat on the God’s Shoulders, informing him of the goings on in the lives of the puny Humans who dwelled in the worlds he had created for them, from his sweat and blood. The Ravens could be sent, and through their eyes he could see.
