In this episode, a chat with Scarlet Ravenswood, whose blog Arcane Alchemy delves deeply into paganism, wicca and witchcraft. We’re talking about those topics at-large, including social media’s role in both the promotion of the craft as well as the dramatic digital cauldron it brews for witches and pagans online: emoji spells, #BeTheWitchyChange, the Hex Trump movement, witchcraft cameos in feminist protests, it’s all here. So is some nice discussion of Norse mythology and its resurgence in popular culture after being demonized for so long, as well as some discussion on the tarot, rose baths, cord magic, and a Japanese horror manga everyone should read. You may enjoy the chat. Or you may not. *shrug*
