Every mainstream religion has rites for the deceased. But what do Witches do? Mortellus, Priestix and mortician, joins us to talk about the elements of a Witch's funeral and why it's important to consider these things while we are living. They also share with us the journey of the deceased in the mortuary room, and a new perspective on caring for the deceased. Hilary talks about Damiana, we discuss our favorite Halloween movies, and how we are celebrating a different kind of Halloween during Covid. Plus, creepy dolls creep out the masses.
