    Ep 29 Healing Our Inner Child

    It's our season finale and we wanted to end it by talking about our inner

    Ep 28 No Liberation Without Accountability

    Ep 28 No Liberation Without Accountability

    In this episode, we discuss call-out culture on social media and whether it's
    effective in holding people accountable for their words and actions. We also
    tackle Black leaders, elitism among Black academics, tussling with Gen Z, and
    how to hold space for young people who are still learning.

    Ep 27 When Therapy Is Not Enough

    Ep 27 When Therapy Is Not Enough

    TRIGGER WARNING // SUICIDE & SELF-HARM

    What do we do when therapy is not enough? We discuss our therapy journeys, which
    types of therapy we've done,  as well as the success and limitations of therapy.
    We also get into some alternative forms of healing because help should be
    accessible to all of us.

    Ep 26: Letting Go of Unnecessary Suffering

    Life is full of suffering. Why would we take on more suffering when we don't
    have to? Today, we discuss, religious propaganda, capitalist mentality, and
    relationship norms around suffering. We also get into obnoxious confidence, what
    it is, and how we can use it to live our best lives.

    Ep 24: The Radical Act of Dreaming

    In this episode, we discuss the act of dreaming and how it showed up in our
    childhood. Using Toni Morrison's 1988 Sarah Lawrence College's commencement
    speech, we discuss dreaming as an act of liberation, the role dreaming plays in
    abolition work, and how we've dreamed our lives into existence.

I am so thankful to have come across ANOTHER podcast that speaks to my spirit. In the few episodes I have started you guys have helped me bring light to a lot of things in my life and on this journey. Also, shout out to Mississippi! I’m from Chicago but I spent many summers with my grandma in the Delta.

Leah Walentosky

I absolutely love this show, and the perspective. I stated listening to this show to get the perspective of fellow witches from different racial background than me and I am learning so much. I particularly liked the episode about God and Nature. As a survivor of depression and suicide, I know first hand in the healing powers that being with Mama Earth can bring. I came to know her as the Triple Goddess of Celtic folklore. I fist came across your show because I don’t know too many who share my first name, so special shout out to Leah from Leah. Blessed Be to you both.
