What better way to honor this 93rd episode than by talking about the life and work of the notorious Aleister Crowley. The Great Beast himself, the wickedest man in the world, the man who’s performed more sex magick rituals than there are pages in the book we’re about to discuss, and that’s a lot of pages, folks. 705 of them in this book called Perdurabo by our guest, Dr. Richard Kaczynski.
Richard is also the author of The Weiser Concise Guide to Aleister Crowley. He has been a student of the Western hermetic tradition since 1978, and has lectured internationally on these topics since 1990. His writing has appeared in numerous magazines and books, including High Times, Concordance to the Holy Books of Thelema, and The Golden Dawn Sourcebook.
Richard and I are gonna essentially make our way nearly chronologically through Crowley’s life, and if you’re on Patreon you’re getting nearly two hours of show here. But if you’re not you’re only getting that first hour. And, of all the shows you want to hear in their entirety, this is the one you really don’t want to miss, because you’re only getting half the story. Patreon.com/occulture is the destination for the whole shebang, and it’s as little as $2 a month.
