Episode 6: The S Word - All Souls Witchy Women Podcast
Welcome to the All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 6: The S Word, in which we discuss the power of scent. Scent plays a powerful role in our perception of the world around us. Scent transports us to different times and places. It stimulates our salivary glands and make our mouths water. Scent warns us that danger is near. None of this is surprising when you consider that smell is the most sensitive of our senses and the first to develop. Whether it’s Matthew’s cloves and cinnamon or...
Episode 5: The F Word, Part Deux - All Souls Witchy Women Podcast
Welcome to the All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 5: The F Word, Part Deux, in which we discuss fathers —the good, the bad, and everything in between. In May, we did a special Mother’s Day episode and we had so much fun that it only felt fair to show the fathers some love. So in this episode we discuss the fathers of the All Souls Trilogy and the special brand of love that they bring to their children. If you’ve been keeping track (and faithfully subscribing — you ARE faithfully...
Episode 4: The D Word - All Souls Witchy Women Podcast
Welcome to All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 4: The D Word. In this episode we discuss desire and its prevalence in the All Souls Trilogy. Deborah Harkness gave us a lot to talk about in this episode. We discuss how desire impacts characters differently, how Diana learns to harness her desire (and in the process comes to a better understanding of herself), and how desire serves to motivate us in ways that we might not think about. As usual, we sneak in some personal observations and...
Episode 3: The M Word - All Souls Witchy Women Podcast
Welcome to this week’s All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 3: The M Word. This episode is dedicated to all the strong mothers, surrogate mothers, and adoptive mothers in the All Souls Trilogy. Deborah Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy is about many things but it is above all else an ode to strong women — and the mothers who raised them. Since we’ve benefited from the love of our own mothers, our friends’ mothers, and women who weren’t our mothers but still made big impressions on our lives,...
Episode 2: The F Word - All Souls Witchy Women Podcast
Welcome to this week’s All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 2: The F Word. In this episode we discuss why fear is perhaps THE emotion that Diana (and others) need to face in order to move forward and discover their true selves . No one likes to be afraid and we all would prefer to avoid fear at all costs. In that sense, fear is the great equalizing emotion. But what if facing our fears was the best — the only — way forward? Our best option for getting unstuck? For large parts of her life...
Episode 1: The O Word - All Souls Witchy Women Podcast
Welcome to this week’s All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 1: The O Word. In this episode we discuss why Outlander fans should run, not walk, to read the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. We met over Outlander and now we’re adding to our obsession list with the All Souls Trilogy. In this, our FIRST!!!!, podcast, we discuss how the book series are similar, how they're different, and, most importantly, why we almost guarantee that if you like Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander, you’ll fall...
