What Type of Witch Are You? | Episode 15

6/26/2022
Buzzfeed. Beano. Pop Sugar. Brainfall. These are just a few of the websites promoting quizzes and listicles that will tell you what type of witch you’re destined to be. The belief around these categories or types of witches is so pervasive, it’s one of the most common beginner questions we see. Liz believes there’s value in these labels, while Aradia feels they’re too arbitrary to do anyone any real good. What do you think? This episode is brought to you by our Producer Patrons! Thanks for...

Happy Pride Month! As proud card carrying members of the Alphabet Mafia, Aradia and Liz are excited to talk about the intersection of queerness and spirituality this week - and we only go off the rails a couple times! Join us as we talk about the overlap in the two communities, tips for de-gendering your energy and practice, and have story time where we talk about all the ways in which the gods were hella gay. We've got some book recs if these topics interest you further, & some queer witch...

Imposter Syndrome, Gatekeeping, & the Witch Aesthetic | Ep 13

5/29/2022
Today we're talking about how much imposter syndrome sucks, and discuss the ways in which gatekeeping lends itself to, and is maybe also fueled by, imposter syndrome. We also dive down a Google search rabbit hole to talk about the image of the witch and how it's harmful to actual practitioners (but not in the way you think - we love those crone hag pictures here!), plus toss in some rants about neurodivergency and spoon theory, the pros and cons to social media, and Aradia even gets to break...

Magickal Activism | Ep 11

5/1/2022
The world is a rough and scary place right now. Maybe you feel like you want to do something to make a difference, but you don't have the time, connections, financial resources, or spoons to step up. We get it. Today, Aradia and Liz want to talk about ways you can put your witchcraft where your mouth is to help support causes you care about. Content warning: We're talking social injustice, humanitarian rights, reproductive rights, the war in Ukraine, LGBTQIA+ rights, and more. If these...
