Episode 73: “Thorn Trees” With Mich’El Oliver, Bernadette Montana, and Jacob Larch

February 22, 2021

A new show about Witches??? We are joined by three members of the production team of Thorn Trees, an independently produced series about a grieving witch who recruits a repentant witch-hunter in Elizabethan England to help save her family from a corrupt Bishop intent on murder. The team chats with us about the journey to creating this piece, the challenge of indie production, and the desire to tell a different story. Digressions include birth stones, ash and doughnut theft, and head-biting. A listener has heard "that time of the month" is the best for Magick...but what if they feel like crap at "that time"? On Patreon: Extended, ad-free episode plus deep-dive with the creators.

Episode 66: The 2021 Astrological Forecast With Theresa Reed

January 4, 2021

A special thanks to our episode sponsors! See below for listener discounts! Eclipses, retrogrades, and a chance for cash...Theresa Reed returns to give us the 2021 forecast! We revisit her freakishly accurate predictions for 2020, including events that surprised most Astrologers. We discuss what we can expect in 2021--both positive and negative and go into some nice, juicy rants about enraging stuff. We also explore the Magick to do on in 2021. Digressions include weird Christmastime dreams and Instagram antics. Hilary introduces us to an incredible Icelandic musician. A listener submitted a post to an online group, but it was banned for "mention of pregnancy." Is this kind of gatekeeping normal in Pagan groups? On Patreon: Theresa talks about what to avoid in 2021, Courtney tells a story of a strange wedding and stranger divorce, and we do some more ranting and raving.

Digressions include the childhood movies that traumatized us and our most hilarious spell requests. A listener is dismantling their Ancestor altar.

December 21, 2020

A special thanks to our episode sponsors! Please see below for listener specials! It’s our annual holiday episode!!! We are talking with Temperance Alden, author of Year of the Witch, about connecting with different cycles of the year through ritual and intuition and awesome ways to celebrate the Winter Solstice and Yule, including the tradition of Witch Balls! Plus, we both love and hate on “Tan Santa.” Hilary discusses frankincense, Kanani discusses La Befana, and Courtney brings back the hit game: “Hallmark or Horror Movie?” A listener, who runs an Etsy store, has been dealing with unfair reviews. Is there a spell they can do to bring satisfaction to their customers, or is that messing with someone’s free will? To download the “Hallmark or Horror Movie” game to play at your own holiday festivities, join us on Patreon! Audio transcript and show notes at thatwitchlife.com.
