I write things primarily about sports – especially football – games, books, news and technology, as well as other stuff like beards, axes and how to be a Viking.

Hoping I'm secretly Scandinavian.

Life after Z-Day: what living with zombies would actually be like

The continued threat of terrorism and the rise of Daesh, the recent Ebola epidemic, North Korea’s nuclear missile programme, Russia’s full-time dedication to being mental – according to the world’s media, we’re forever on the edge of global catastrophe. What a time to be alive. Yet, of all the possible catalysts for worldwide chaos, the one that seems to grip humanity the most is if we all turned into shuffling, bitey bastards with a severe craving for each other’s flesh.

Want to be a Viking? Then these are the places you should visit!

Let’s face it – it’s hard to escape the Vikings in this day and age. It doesn’t matter if you’re sporting a daring hipster beard, have 125 hours logged on Skyrim or simply like watching the Avengers, Viking is the new trend, whether you knew about it or not. From Of Monsters and Men to Beowulf, current pop culture has been permeated by Norse influences.

About

Josh Butler

I'm a writer. My work has appeared in FourFourTwo, The Sabotage Times and Bleacher Report. Most recently, I've worked for Fella, an up-and-coming men's lifestyle publication, and written for football blog Tales From the Top Flight.

Currently, I write for Mwabu, where I create accessible educational content for learners in developing countries such as South Africa.

Outside of my 9-5 job, I write about sports (football, wrestling, MMA, etc), video games (Crash Bandicoot is somewhat of a hero of mine), technology, music – but I'm able to write convincingly across a broad range of subjects.

I was part of Fella when it launched and helped it grow to over 100,000 Facebook fans within 6 months. I also engaged with audiences via our social media channels, especially Twitter, where I'm known as something of a serial tweeter.

Outside of work, you'll usually find me playing football on Saturdays; and the rest of the time, I'm usually down the gym, writing about elves or getting lost in a good book.
