    Witch Ways 26 - The Fox's Gift

    Every so often, a witch's work needs to be done in secret, and we must be cunning and full of tricks in order to make sure our magics are not discovered until they've had a chance to work. Borrow a bit of that guile with The Fox's Gift, from the pages of The Sisters Grimmoire. (For more fairytale spells, you can purchase a copy on Amazon or from my shop!)

    Ep. 032 - Guides Not Gatekeepers

    Ep. 032 - Guides Not Gatekeepers

    Volunteer educators are the backbone of the witchcraft community. That can be a huge boon to newer witches, but it can also cause problems when needless gatekeeping or misinformation start to become too prevalent. In this episode, I’ve set out to clarify a few things about what it means to be a volunteer educator, what it takes to be a guide and a resource, and how we can avoid passing bad information or making newer practitioners feel unwelcome.

    And since I didn’t want to raise this topic without also providing some resources to point people toward, make sure you stay tuned for the Volunteer Educators Showcase later this month!

    Ep. 031 - Witching with ADHD with Lozzie Stardust

    Ep. 031 - Witching with ADHD with Lozzie Stardust

    This month, I wanted to talk about a subject near and dear to my own heart - what it’s like to be a witch with ADHD. I invited my good buddy and everyone’s favorite horrible goose, Lozzie Stardust, to join me for the discussion. Buuuut since we’re both in the club, things went off the rails pretty quickly. (We regret nothing. 😅)

    So we wound up having a rollicking discussion on how to be a witch with ADHD and also providing a window into what it’s like to actually have this condition. (If the content of this episode resonates strongly with you and you have never been tested for or diagnosed with ADHD, you may want to look into it.)

    Ep. 030 - Atheist Witchcraft and Placebo Magic with Sedna Woo

    Ep. 030 - Atheist Witchcraft and Placebo Magic with Sedna Woo

    We all joke about the irony of polytheistic witches being called “godless,” but what happens when your craft is quite literally without deities or spirituality of any kind? I sat down with YouTube’s own Sedna Woo to find out. The answer is both simpler and much deeper than you might expect. (Spoiler: I’m totally adding open label placebos to my own practice.)

    Check out Sedna Woo and subscribe to her channel on YouTube!

Packed with wisdom, wit, and practical info!

Every episode of Bree’s podcast has me running for pen and paper because she generously shares so much practical information that is immediacy applicable to my own practice. She brings her extensive experience and research to her audience in an easily-understandable and enjoyable way. An essential podcast for any magical practitioner!

Focused yet warm

Here are some things I appreciate about Hex Positive: Bri’s voice is warm and calm. She doesn’t spend podcast time talking about herself; she gets down to business. She values precision and accuracy, as do I! Also, I like that she throws in random short episodes with recipes or brief information. She is very informative without wasting the listener’s time. Thank you!

Justfabalice ,

Thoughtful and inclusive perspective

I appreciate Bree’s thought process and experience on witchcraft, it’s so refreshing when the majority of what I can find is religious(Wicca) and spiritually focused. A smooth and easy to listen to voice is a fab bonus! I also signed up as a patreon, the information covered here is more than worth it! Thanks for creating this secular witchcraft focused space!
