Augusten Burroughs is the author of many best-selling books and memoirs, including Dry, Magical Thinking, Lust and Wonder, and the literary behemoth, Running with Scissors. Despite his consistently confessional approach, Burroughs’s latest book, Toil & Trouble, explores a subject he had yet to broach: the fact that he identifies as a witch, and has been practicing witchcraft throughout his whole life. On this episode, he shares some of his spell casting techniques, discusses how magic has affected his marriage and career, and talks about why this newest book was the scariest one for him to write.
Pam also talks about the concept of manifestation, and answers a listener question about casting spells with words vs. images.
