I got this lovely information from a redditor named “dw___pirate.” 

THE CHILDREN OF ODIN

A collection of myths for younger readers. These myths are explained in a simple and easy to understand way intended for children, but also good for newbies.

VOLSUNGASAGA

About the deeds of the sons of Volsung. The language of this audio is more formal and may be hard to understand if you are not more well acquainted with the myths, or if you are not focusing.

EIRIK THE RED SAGA 

This saga contains the events that led to Eirik the red being banished to Greenland (which is actually cold and icy, while Iceland is green and less cold). He also discovers a place called “Newfoundland,” which according to geographic details, is the first European discovery of the American mainland some five centuries before Columbus’s journey.
