    Sex, Lies, & Theosophy: The Helena Blavatsky Story

    Sex, Lies, & Theosophy: The Helena Blavatsky Story

    Helena Petrovna Blavatsky had it all, aristocratic lineage, intelligence, and enough imagination to rewrite her story when things didn't go her way. Join us on a deep dive into the world of the godmother of the New Age Movement, mental illness, Russian folklore, white people whitin' around, and more lies than you can shake several sticks at.

    BLACK LIVES MATTER

    BLACK LIVES MATTER

    We felt it was inappropriate to distract from the larger issues at hand for our nation.  We have created a resource list (https://www.ireadathing.com/black-lives-matter/) for non-black allies to educate themselves as well as resources for activists and protestors to take steps in (hopefully) ensuring they have access to what they need if they are detained or assaulted by police or the military.  You can also find a list of places to donate to bail funds as well as to the families dealing with the aftermath of police violence on their loved ones.  We will update this list as we find more information, so please send suggestions if we've missed something.  Email links to: info@ireadathing.com.

WOW

Stumbled upon this out of the blue and I couldn’t help but be interested with all the random titles. These ladies definitely get into some random but very interesting topics, they left me smiling and thinking about some stuff I never thought I would. Can’t wait to hear more!

Love these ladies! Especially during Covid I feel like they are sitting in my kitchen with me having a conversation and it feels so natural. I love woo-woo and they are skeptical but I love that they explore all these fun topics. I hope they dig in Q-anon because that sheet is cray. I can tell they love to research and I appreciate that. Thank you ladies for the giggles and convo!
