    Episode 171: Inciting An Afrominimalist Riot

    Episode 171: Inciting An Afrominimalist Riot

    Episode 171 is an interview with author, anti-racism activist, and minimalist Christine Platt. We discuss her new book, The Afrominimalist's Guide to Living with Less, which brings a fresh new perspective to the conversation of minimalism. Platt guides her reader through the sociological and psychological ways in which we form attachments to things and patterns of accumulation, not to tell you to get rid of all your stuff or to only have so many of a given item, but to help you build a home and life that is created with intention. She doesn't shy away from the fact that too often marginalized communities are left out of these types of dialogue, often because minimalism is marketed to well-off cishet white people with a steep price tag, and seeks to create a new kind of inclusive community of minimalists and those who wish to live with less.

    Episode 170: Inciting A Queer Riot

    Episode 170: Inciting A Queer Riot

    Episode 170 is a roundtable with a diverse group of queer practitioners from around the world representing multiple facets of the magical community. The modern Pagan community is seen by many as focusing on fertility and binary gender identity which can leave LGBTQ+ practitioners feeling disenfranchised. We explore the notion of being LGBTQ+ in a fertility religion, embracing the term 'queer' as well as other terminology with a problematic past, spiritual bypassing used as a means to invalidate lived experience, and how cishet Pagans can be better allies.

    Episode 169: Inciting An Expert Riot

    Episode 169: Inciting An Expert Riot

    Episode 169 asks What is an expert? Is it formal academic achievement? Certifications? Is being an expert subjective to the field itself? To answer that question, I've brought together a circle of experts in different fields to parse out the finer points of the discourse surrounding expertise. 


     


    We discuss bona fides, goalposts, how experts identify experts and they way they identify frauds, the ways in which certifications and titles are both helping and hurting the identification of experts, and by the end of the episode you'll be initiated into the Kevin Bacon tradition of witchcraft and heading off to a goat rodeo.

    Episode 168: Inciting A Pagan Music Riot

    Episode 168: Inciting A Pagan Music Riot

     

    Episode 168 of Inciting A Riot is a roundtable with some familiar voices. I am welcoming back Rene Collins, Ginger Doss, SJ Tucker, and Cheshire Moon to the podcast. They are some of modern Paganism's foremost musical acts, and we had a delightful conversation about the business of independent artistry, what leadership means, fear, and the joys of being a bard for a bunch of witches.

    Episode 167: Inciting Via Hedera's Riot

    Episode 167: Inciting Via Hedera's Riot

    Episode 167 is an interview with folklorist, witch, and author Via Hedera. We had a far-reaching discussion about the hidden history of superstition, the double-edged blade of using genetics as a basis for cultural exploration, the increasing visibility of BIPOC and queer witches, and the absolute grossest spell she knows. Her new book Folkloric American Witchcraft and the Multicultural Experience is out now from Moon Books.

Nice to listen to

It’s nice to have podcasts to listen to that have different opinions than your own. I don’t always agree with the topics but it is refreshing when people don’t just say what they think people want to hear.

Entertainment AND Education!

Listen to this podcast if you like to learn about things you didn't even know you wanted to learn about. Fire Lyte's topics and his guest interviews have introduced me to so many different points of view and topics of conversation that I never ever would have experienced in my life otherwise. He's genuine, sincere, intelligent, and has a great sense of humor, which all come across when hosting others on this show. Thank you, Fire Lyte, for over a decade of being in my ears. :)
