"Lights, Camera, Witchcraft" with Author Heather Greene!
Author Heather Greene joins me to discuss her book, "Lights, Camera, Witchcraft - A Critical History of Witches in American Film and Televsion".
No industry has been as influential at shaping the popular notion of what it means to be a witch quite as much as Hollywood. This book traces the fascinating history of witchcraft and witches in American film and television. From Joan the Woman and The Wizard of Oz to Carrie and Charmed, author and film scholar Heather Greene explores how these films helped influence the public image of the witch and profoundly influenced how women negotiate their power in a patriarchal society. Lights, Camera, Witchcraft uncovers fascinating insights into the intersection of entertainment, critical theory, gender studies, and spirituality.

Ciel Luciole Returns - The Starspun Crystal Path
Join me for another conversation with Ciel Luciole, proprietress of The Starspun Crystal Path.
From the Etsy site:
Welcome to the Starspun Crystal Path! Here you will find crystal bundles lovingly handpicked with intention to bring magic into your life. I choose all the crystals myself and select each one individually for their intended bundles based on how they harmonize with the other crystals. All the crystal allies in my care are well loved and handled with respect until they find their new home. We are starting small but I have big dreams for all that this path could become so be sure to check back often!
To be nice
I LOVE mickie mueller, but I gotta say I was somewhat bored listening to the episode. I will say that in the description it said they’d talk about covid but I didn’t think it would be the whole show, and it was very political. I like the personality of the hostess but the shows don’t really draw me in. The guests are great too but the show always leaving me wanting something more..witchy and less political. Perhaps a name change and a description tweak is in order
I look forward to hearing this show every Friday night. It’s like listening two best friends talk about everything from politics to their everyday lives. For me, in my opinion, I love it!
Needs to be a lot less political more witchy
