    BTW 67: Your Higher Self Has a Message for You with Bunny Michael

    Today we chat with Bunny Michael, a multi-disciplinary artist, spiritual coach and guide, who helps us access our higher self. You’ll know them from their inspirational and hugely popular IG memes and juicy podcast, XOHigher Self. In this episode we discuss what Bunny means by that term higher self (in witchcraft it’s often referred to as the deep self). We discuss finding our true worth, and how tarot and magic can help us do that. We go into how Bunny pulled herself out of a break up doom spiral and into IG stardom by making artwork that truly means something to people, and how you can do that too. We know you’re going to love it. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

    BTW 63: Sirens, Medusa, and the Beings of the Underworld with Liz Andres

    BTW 63: Sirens, Medusa, and the Beings of the Underworld with Liz Andres

    Today we have a special treat for you in our conversation with museum professional and scholar Liz Andres. Here we discuss Liminal Beings, those mythical creatures who dwell between the worlds, of life and death, above and below, in the wilds and in the human realms. Often, they appear as hybrid creatures, half human half animal, like the Sirens or Medusa, like the randy adventurous Centaurs of yore. These beings break through binaries - they are disrupters, destabilizing the reality we thought we knew all too well. When we find them in myth, they are often magical holders of the mystery traditions, and embodiments of the unknowable and the beyond. Sounds delicious, right! Join us!

My favorite resource

I love this podcast SO MUCH!! I go back & relisten to episodes if I need a refresh on a tarot card. This podcast makes me a better witch & taroist

Beautiful imagery

I am still in the process of listening to this (# 64) podcast, but thought you’d like to know just how right on you are with your intuition about springs being Source. In Arabic and Farsi they use the word ‘ayn with means eye but it also means spring (as in water) and Source!
So there you have it. Perhaps you already knew that, but just in case you didn’t…

By the way, yours is the most SATISFYING podcast I think I’ve every encountered. So rich with literary references but that alone would not be enough for me. You are a poet and a painter of passionate, perceptive, and powerful images splashed onto the screen of my imagination with playful pleasure prodding my pristine inner child to sheer delight!
(I couldn’t resist)

My Favorite Podcast!!

I’ve been listening to Amanda and Carolyn’s podcast since it was Strange Magic. Between the Worlds continues to prove how much care and thought they put into every episode.
I love the fact that Amanda pulls in mythology, pop-culture, psychology, art, poetry, music and nature into the episodes. She discusses so many facets of each card!
And I love her voice, it’s soothing and sweet and she gets so excited when she talks about the things that interest her, that apply to the specific card that she’s talking about.
Carolyn creates these beautiful, ethereal pieces of music that reflect the discussion of each episode and it further enhances the witchy, creative vibe. They make such a lovely team and truly, you learn so much by listening. It makes me so happy that there are open and loving witches out there like Caroline and Amanda who generously share their ideas and knowledge with the world!
