Wild Witches Episode 1: Drawing Down the Moon

Wild Witches Episode 1: Drawing Down the Moon

I wanted to post this conversation between myself and two of my favorite witches, Moondancer and Enku from our Wild Witches Year and a Day class as a bit of lagniappe for y’all listeners. In this discussion we talk about several topics around witchcraft traditions discussed in the book Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler and go on to discuss other topics such as witchcraft traditions, and even talk about QAnon and the Tarot is a closed practice debacle.

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.

Episode 15: #WitchesGettinVaccinated

Welcome to the 15th episode of the Science Witch Podcast!

For this episode, I have a conversation with fellow Science Witch, Kat Borealis of the Borealis Meditation podcast. In our conversation, we discuss how her geological studies intersect and affirm her spirituality, and then discuss the COVID-19 vaccine in an effort to combat misinformation in the spiritual community about these vaccines. We introduce the hashtage #WitchesGettinVaccinated and invite anyone out there listening to use it in their social media platforms to support vaccine and science literacy.

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

Special thanks to our episode sponsors, Cricket and Iris Magical Botanicals.

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.
