Betwixt and Between are two witches and real life friends who curl up on the sofa amidst animals, tea and craft projects to chat about witchcraft. Sometimes we bring on knowledgeable guests and sometimes we use our own expertise from our academic backgrounds in theology and psychology to add to texture to our shows. But we always approach our subjects from a practical, personal, dirt-under-fingernails perspective.
Chats With the Water Witch
Have you met Annwyn Avalon? Well, you should! Join Betwixt and Between for this non-stop flow of fun and conversation with The Water Witch. Author of two books, teacher, and mentor to Water Witches, Annwyn has generously shared her experience and wisdom with us as we wrap up our look at the element of water.
Happy Jul...er...AUGUST! We missed you! After surviving cross-country journeys and the ups and downs of the summer, Betwixt and Between are back to talk about the magic of water. How do you use this element in magic? What spirits are associated with it? Does anyone REALLY not think water is magical? Is it a sea serpent, or is it a whale penis?
Fire Lyte Chats
Join us for our chat with Fire Lyte, of Inciting a Riot, about his book A Dabbler's Guide to Witchcraft: Seeking an Intentional Magical Path. A book we can highly recommend for those entering today's Pagan community, and for those trying to explain today's Pagan community to possible new seekers, A Dabbler's Guide addresses everything from making up your own path to cultural sensitivity. We certainly had a lot of fun covering it all!
A River Runs Through It: Water, Part I
Second part of the Element series--let's talk water! What's your watershed area called? When's the last time you connected to the water cycle? How has water shaped the history of humanity's development? Betwixt and Between take a dip in the science and history of water. Part II, the Witchy side of water, coming soon!
The Magic and Beauty of Art - Intersections of Art and Witchcraft
Happy belated April and Beltane to all! This special interview with Between and Niena (who was also featured in Episode 34!) is all about art. Why do humans create art? What about art is magical? How can you use art in Witchcraft? Is there a difference between "art" and "craft?" What should you do if you are recording a podcast and there is a sudden tornado? All this and more! And Betwixt, who was busy editing her new book (!!!!!!!) will be back in Episode 63!
Notes for Newbies: Getting Started in the Craft
Are you new to the Craft? Are you overwhelmed and confused? Do you worry about “doing it right?” Well, friend, have a listen to this episode! Betwixt and Between wax on and on about their suggestions for getting started as a Witch.
Such a Fun Place to Learn
I've always been so interested in witchcraft, but it seemed inaccessible to me until I came across this podcast while looking up a book by the same title. I'm thankful for that random mix up, because for the first time, practicing witchcraft actually seems like something that's possible to do.
The only downside is that the episode pages I've clicked on don't seem to offer a list of the books mentioned in the podcast. Since I'm only on episode 6, it's possible they add the books later on in their run. And listening to an episode twice won't be a terrible fate :)
These ladies are engaging, down to earth, practical, and hilarious. I'm really looking forward to listening to the rest of the episodes!
Cacophony of knowledge
There is a lot of information shared on this program, but the hosts appear to have no concept how hard it is to understand anything when people talk over each other. Here's a hint: it's much more difficult than it would be in person, and it's unintentionally excluding people whose hearing isn't ideal.
Changed my practice
Listening and connecting to the ideas these Witches discuss makes me feel uplifted and inspired. A little bit of everything for everyone and very relatable for Witch-Moms!!!! Blessed be!
