Exploring the wisdom and wildness that life has to offer, through the lenses of Tarot, music, and magic.

    Crow Mother with Liza Fenster

    Crow Mother with Liza Fenster

    Liza (She Her Hers) is a life long Witch who works as Reiki Master Teacher, Tarot Educator/Reader and Ordained Minister. Acting in this way as community servant, she is  committed to both ecological and community healing on local and global levels - and with that, deeply committed to social justice and the healing and reparation of BIPOC communities and to the decolonization of wellness.

    It was truly an honor to hear Liza speak about the magic of the body, and the power of being embodied in human form, particularly in relation to child-carrying and the act of giving birth. She also explained to me how meeting her biological father and reconnecting with her indigenous heritage led her to serve Crow Mother, and together we found space for goddexx in everything, even social media. Above all, Liza's story reminded me of the innate power we all inherit through the simple, yet profound, act of being alive.

    Photographing the Tarot with Nicolas Bruno

    Photographing the Tarot with Nicolas Bruno

    Nicolas Bruno is an artist based in Northport, New York, where he photographs and fabricates props for his compositions. Bruno weaves together his terrifying experiences of Sleep Paralysis with surreal self portraiture in a therapeutic translation of night terror to image. His constructed worlds of uncertainty exist on a plane between waking and sleeping, where he is tormented by a physical embrace of the subconscious and its perils, all while being paralyzed in bed. Influences of 19th century Romanticists, historical texts of occultism, and dream symbolism lace each composition with various visual dialogues of the macabre.

    In this conversation, Nicolas and I talk about his artistic process and his newest creation, The Somnia Tarot, which channels his nocturnal experiences into a stunning 78-card deck.

Gentle and Expansive!

Nick is such a thoughtful host and facilitator and I am always left expanded by the conversations and contemplations. Feels like eavesdropping, and all are so generous with their knowledge and insights! Would recommend to anyone at any level of tarot interest!

Gentle, eye-opening, accessible, lovely

adore this podcast. So thoughtful and creative, and has lead me to moments of growth and little lightbulb moments whenever I listen

This is a must listen for lovers of tarot!!!

I have been a tarot enthusiast for over ten years but very much consider myself a novice when it comes to readings. I’ve listened to many tarot podcasts but none of them felt authentic or relatable. They also used verbiage that was lost on a newcomer to tarot like myself. Not this podcast!!! Erika and Nick take a subject that could be totally overwhelming and make it approachable and fun. I already can’t wait for the next episode! ❤️
