    Episode 86 - Magical Substitutions

    Episode 86 - Magical Substitutions

    How is a magical working like a baking show? Our Star Magicians delve into the questions around "follow the recipe" magic, and how they substitute ingredients and work in old spells. We cover simple rules on how to identify ways to substitute for hard-to-find (or impossible-to-find) magical components.

    Episode 85 - A Brushwood Detour (Part 2 of 2)

    Episode 85 - A Brushwood Detour (Part 2 of 2)

    We take an autumn detour to the Brushwood Folklore Center, a spur-of-the-moment change in plans that brought back memories and reminded us that yeah, sometimes we give ourselves good advice.


    We'll describe a lot of the space, but sometimes it helps to see pictures.


    Check out images of the icons in the space, the Taranis Altar, and the Blue Boat Shrine we mention.





    If your podcast app doesn't let you see embedded photos in the show notes, hit up our main page at druidsincars.podbean.com, or pop into the Google Photos album of the side-trip for the full view.


    Reminisce with us as we enjoy our memories of years of camping, ritual, and experience in western New York State, returning to an old friend and sacred site.

    Episode 84 - Living a Pagan Lifestyle (Part 1 of 2)

    Episode 84 - Living a Pagan Lifestyle (Part 1 of 2)

    This week, we chat about a commonly-requested topic: how we live our lives as Pagans, and what the lifestyle looks like to us. Part of that is just how we live our lives, and the decisions that we make that seem quite mundane: how we speak to and rear our children, how we interact with the world around us, and even how we travel. We talk about our visits to the Nashville Parthenon, and about a map of publicly accessible Pagan statues all throughout the US that resides on the Three Cranes Google account.


    Also, get a load of us, practicing our own advice when a surprise thought leads us down a different road than expected, quite literally... making this Part One of a two-part episode all of a sudden. Tune in next week for our escapade on our detour!

    Episode 83 - Reflections on Hybrid Ritual (and: On The Road Again!)

    Episode 83 - Reflections on Hybrid Ritual (and: On The Road Again!)

    We're back on the road, going to a festival, meaning that your friendly, chatty Druids are back in the full swing of the work. We recorded enough episodes to finish out the rest of the season on our way to Harvest Nights, and to provide a head start into next season as well, so get ready for regular episodes to return starting this week until the break!


    This week, we're talking about what it's been like to do hybrid rituals (partially private and in-person, partially public and over web conferencing software). Back in Episode 70, we described what we thought it would be like, and this seemed an opportune time to think about the experience and reflect a bit together on it.


    So many thanks to Charter Oak Grove, ADF, in Connecticut for putting together such a wonderful weekend in person. It was amazing.

    Episode 82 - Kindling Sparks: An Interview With Rev. Avende

    Episode 82 - Kindling Sparks: An Interview With Rev. Avende

    Did you know that one of our co-hosts, Rev. Avende, has published a children's education book? They did! It's called Kindling Sparks: A Religious Education Program for Young Pagans, and it's been available for a bit now through Rev. Avende's Patreon, and it's now been released as a book!


    Today, we interview Rev. Avende and talk about the process of bringing this program to life; it's development in early 2020 through today, and the path it's taken through testing and community work.


    You can pick up a copy of Kindling Sparks through Garanus Publishing on Lulu, at The Magical Druid, or wherever fine books are sold!


    You can also find their first book, The Spiraling Sun: A Winter Solstice Liturgy at The Magical Druid.

    Episode 81 - Magical Work-Life Balance

    Episode 81 - Magical Work-Life Balance

    Finally on our way to and from a festival, even it it was virtual, Revs. Avende and Dangler are on their way out to the site of our broadcasted Summerland Unity Rite for a Druid Moon, and they spend some time discussing how they balance the religious and magical lives they lead with their mundane lives.


    They also get stuck in traffic at a tomato festival, because, well, what's life without a little unplanned weirdness.


    Summerland was great, though all online. If you're interested in a great online festival experience, we'll recommend Beyond the Gates, a festival happening over Labor Day weekend, and you can still register and see their presenters!


    Our next in-person festival, if everything works out, will be Charter Oak's Harvest Nights. It would be really great if we could see you there, probably masked, but we're anxious to have it be in person again.
