Hello Mad Viking! Thank you for taking the time for this interview.

Can you tell us who you are and a little about yourself?

Well my given name is Shane. I am a 40 year old child. I, like Peter Pan, choose never to grow up! I am an Industrial Skilled Trades Electrician Specialized In Robotics. I teach an Rslogix5000 class at a local college. I have a 9 year old Autistic Son. His name is Phoenix. and I just enjoy living life and all the suprises that come with it!

What platforms do you like to stream on? What do you like and dislike about streaming? What would you change if you could?

So currently, I am streaming on MeetMe and Tagged. Eventually I would like to start my own Youtube channel, but thats a little ways off yet. I can't say there are too many dislikes about streaming other than maybe the censorship. Certain platforms don't let you talk about or do certain things. Streaming is a way to express yourself and it's always hard when another entity limits the ways you can express yourself. I guess that is the only thing I would change as well. Some of the great comedians of the world wouldn't be as popular if they were to put limits on how or what they could say or do.

What are some of your interests and hobbies? What do you like to do when you aren't entertaining the world with your streams? What inspires you?

Some of my hobbies include writing, singing... things like that. I like to travel a lot. I've been to most of the States, alot of Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and a few places in Europe. I don't have a ton of time to focus and work on Hobbies because I do work alot. Most of my inspiration just comes from life and the experiences that you get from living it!

I heard you do readings with the Elder Futhark Runes. How did you get into using them? And what inspired you to use them for others?

Nothing really gets you into them but just being generally interested in them. They were used widely by the vikings and everything viking interests me. I started learning about them when I was a young teen and just continued to mess with them throughout the years. I dont read for other people very often, but when I do it's because the person is interested in the practice of rune reading.

Tell us, what does the future hold for you? And for your upcoming streams?

That's the beautiful part about the future. You never know what it holds. I hope to get more viking stuff to do my lives with so its more authentic looking. I just hope to bring more fun and excitement to my streams and meet more new and interesting people.

Now lastly, how did you choose your name? And, Who is the Mad Viking?

Who am I? Odin is my father! I was molded by the Hammer of Thor, Mjölnir. My body was complete. Freya whispered into my ear and breathed life into the sculpted body that is mine. Who am I you ask? I am Viking!! And, I looked kind of like a viking anyways, and I love everything to do with Vikings, so it was only natural to pick the name I have!
