Demeter and the Cult of Eleusis; Salon Lecture by Dr. James Rietveld!

11 Demeter and the Cult of Eleusis

Listless listeners who dare to listen, boy do we at MagikPizza have a treat for you!

Today we offer to you for your listening pleasure, another FANTASTIC Lecture by Dr. James Rietveld! But in order to get to that magnificent information, you must first traverse through the seedy underbelly of Introduction mispronunciations, Depression, Alaskan Fish Skin Sewing, and getting speeding tickets while in Compton, California.

Enjoy at your own risk. ❤ 🍕

Ouija: Yes, or No? The Controversy!

Ouija Yes or No

Greetings Listeners!

It is Oui, Hannah and Stormy! No one else was talking about the Spirit Board controversy in February (a shame, truly), so we thought you’d enjoy a break from all the lovey-dovey nonsense and have a big fat slice of MAGIK PIZZA! Topped with Satanic Panic, story-swapping, and good old fashioned wine-slurping. Many thanks again to Terri Kennedy for this topic idea and for the use of Ipso Facto as our recording space.

Enjoy!

This Month’s Recommendations

Stormy:

Fixing your Wool Hats: w/ Steam and Plastic wig stands

Firstly, I’d recommend getting those Hard plastic,full headed wig stands over the styrofoam ones. Mainly because the foam ones can be accidentally crushed, stained or burned much more easily than the hard plastic ones. It also cant shrink, which is a plus..

Secondly, I HIGHLY recommend getting the MALE-anatomy ones, as they are far closer to an actual human shaped head than the FEMALE ones.

You can use steam from an enclosed bathroom and hot shower for larger items, OR use a hot kettle to release the steam more precisely. If using the kettle, keep the hat/your hands a couple inches away to avoid steam burns.

After the hat is warm and soft, you can use your hands to manipulate the bowl and brim to the desired shape, getting rid of all the kinks and divets. If the hat ends up getting too wet, just let it dry a bit and try again until it’s the way you want it.

 

Hannah:

Ojibwe traditional hand-harvested and wood-parched wild rice or manoomin from Minnesota (the food that grows on the water).

“Hand Harvested and Wood Parched – Our manoomin is hand harvested by the Anishinaabeg from the 1835, 1855, and 1867 Treaty areas and beyond. We are proud to bring you this natural gift from the Earth. White Earth Nation’s wild rice is certified USDA MCIA 100% Organic.”

Seriously, guys, this tastes unbelievable…It’s a perfect addition to any special sabbat gathering and ritual potluck. Let’s support our indigenous neighbors and share the blessings of Mother Earth.

It’s all about giving books and art for Yule. Something special that won’t get used up or broken, and can help encourage conversation between you and your loved ones.

Stormy: My recommendation for this episode has nothing to do with holiday spirit per say, but everything to do with something i’ve been obsessively consuming nonetheless: the True-Crime podcast Murder Mile!
