On August 15, Lauren and Ben were joined by Esteban Sevilla of Asociación Ásatrú Yggdrasil de Costa Rica to discuss how Heathenry has grown in Costa Rica since the founding of his group in 2010. What are the challenges of being Heathen in a country where there is still an official religion that is deeply entrenched into not just society, but also the legal framework?
