Episode 14: Episode 14- Women’s Movement and Witchcraft with Phaedra Bonewits

Welcome to the 14th episode of the Science Witch Podcast!

Happy 1 year anniversary to the start of the Science Witch Podcast! For our 14th episode, Anjel interviews pagan elder in the witchcraft and neopagan community, Phaedra Bonewits. In our conversation we discuss the women’s spirituality movement and its influence on witchcraft and what important lessons Phaedra would like younger witches to know about this important time in our collective her-story. We also talk a bit about modern expression of witchcraft and how the neopagan community needs to evolve to encompass all gender diversity, as well as share some interesting anecdotes about her late husband, Issac Bonewits. 

Before the interview, I talk about new additions and updates to our Patreon page.

Special thanks to our episode sponsors, As Above, LLC.

Black Lives Matter

It is important that we acknowledge the fact that Portland, Oregon is located in the traditional homelands of the Multnomah, Wasco, Cowlitz, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Watlala Bands of Chinook, Tualatin Kalapuya, Molalla, and many other indigenous nations who made their homes along the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. It is our intention in recognizing these communities to honor their lives, their legacies, their elders, their descendants, and the vibrancy and importance of their ongoing work—and to stand in solidarity with them at every opportunity.
