That Witch Life

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.
