Wyrd Wednesday: Descended from Odin

I recently joined Descended from Odin, a new social media app for Norse Pagans. Described as a “hub for wanderers & warriors”, they claim to be free of algorithms, giving everyone an equal platform.

In the last couple of days, they have either reaffirmed or realigned their positions on inclusivity and gate-keeping, with posts from the founders decrying hate speech, peacocking, and other questionable behaviors.

In a social app that’s casting a broad net so that everyone feels welcome, these are encouraging signs. No one likes censorship (except fascists) but their is a certain amount of decorum that needs to be maintained in these sorts of environments.

So far, everyone I have interacted with has been friendly. It’s an eclectic mix of heathens, pagans, asatruar, and the like. There is a place for everyone, it seems, I love the way the app has hub rooms where you can post directly to those subjects you’re interested in, be it bushcraft, music, working out, or what have you.

I’ve felt very much at home and welcomed there. I think you will be too.

If you are interested, come find me. I’m Occult Detective, naturally.
