Its so nice to see you, seeing us, Listeners.

We know how much you love these lectures, so we won’t DARE deprive you of this one. Joined once again by Dr. James Rietveld, we’re learning about the ritual, magick, and gods of an ancient culture little known outside of academia. But as always, you gotta get through the weird stuff, like: off-key car karaoke, excessive bread-baking, and bandy-legged mosquitoes.

Enjoy the show, everyone!

” 2016 Oregon Pinot Noir has aromas of pomegranate, red raspberry and strawberry with notes of sandalwood. On the palate, bright red fruit flavors lead to soft, velvety tannins with candied cranberry and subtle vanilla notes on the mid-palate. Sweet, fruit flavors and notes of spice offer a long, elegant finish.”

Moving… Get active.

“Gym, dance class, playing a sport, going to the beach, hiking, camping, find a class for a hobby you’ve always wanted to try, take a walk, look up at the night sky, lay in the grass, watch the birds, look for the beauty and magick around you and interact with it. Listen, play, create, and love…please, with everything you have; Love. Enjoy the life you have while you have it. Seek out your passion, pursue it to your own glorious folly. Make your myth. Live.”



Utilizing spray bottles to their fullest potential.

“In my opinion, Spray bottles can be used for so much more than just scaring your cat.. They can be used to apply home-made insecticide to your garden beds, for applying the perfect amount of egg wash to your baked-goods, or even for dispersing an even amount of oil to your frying pan! All with the added benefit of not having aerosol in your food/home! Its cheaper, it’s healthier, it’s less waste, and it’s all around better for you and the environment.”

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.
