1200 mile road trip = 80% this podcast

I came for the tarot, stayed because everything. Initially I wasn’t sure if I was going to connect - I’ve listened to many tarot podcasts and nothing has stuck until now. I quickly realized after each episode I felt like I had tons to absorb and think about, even if there were points where I didn’t quite agree it opened up a real depth of tarot that I hadn’t reached. I appreciate the thought that goes into each deep dive. I just don’t get bored. I don’t identify as a witch, but the process of spells and intentions is relevant to me. I love tarot because of the perspective it provides and this podcast just magnifies the ways in which I connect with tarot. I was skeptical at first that these happy, chipper, California (haha, I am from SoCal) voices would be able to deliver. That was wildly unfounded. Love the juicy, wild ride every time.

Exceptional!

Really great, super listen, always love

Deep and Generous!

This podcast shares a wealth of knowledge for all things esoteric! I’m shocked by how generous the show is with sharing its resources as communities seem to hoard their gifts these days for profit. Amanda has such a beautiful way of expressing herself through an array of topics. So grateful to have found this show and the Weird Circle.
