    Episode 147: Inciting A Pandemic Riot (Part 1)

    Episode 147: Inciting A Pandemic Riot (Part 1)

    Episode 147 of Inciting A Riot brings back friend of the show Cory Hutcheson of New World Witchery for a look back at the social and folkloric history of pandemics. (Hey...you guys asked for this episode. I think the topic is kind of bleak, too, but... 🤷🏼‍♂️) Our topics ranged from some that were actual medical pandemics to others that were more of a social plague to get a good feel for how society has reacted to widespread panic in the past.
     
    We looked at the Black Plague, Salem, the Satanic Panic, HIV/AIDS, Ebola, and the H1N1 epidemics of yore.

    Episode 146: Inciting Patti Wigington's Riot

    Episode 146: Inciting Patti Wigington's Riot

    Episode 146: Patti Wigington is back! We are celebrating her new book Herb Magic as well as getting a sneak peek at her upcoming book Badass Ancestors, out in September 2020.


    Since Patti has spent most of her career as a Pagan advice columnist, we thought it would be a fun opportunity to throw a number of listener-submitted questions at her and test her witchy advice-giving capabilities on the spot!

     
    A special thanks to all those whose questions we used - Peter, Emilia, Alexandra, Renee, Teresa, Joe, Nicole, Amelia, Polly, and Angela - and a big thanks to everyone else who submitted, but we ran out of time! Perhaps we can get Patti back on in the fall for another Q&A!
     
    Find out more about Patti at her website.

    Episode 145: Inciting A Black Lives Matter Riot

    Episode 145: Inciting A Black Lives Matter Riot

    Episode 145 is an open conversation among Black activists and spiritual leaders regarding recent protests, police brutality, whether watching The Help solves racism, what it means to be a good ally, and specifically how white authors, teachers, and publishers in Paganism assist in the erasure of Black Pagan voices. 

     


    My sincere gratitude to the 7 people who stepped forward and were willing to speak on this matter. It was an act of emotional labor and courage, and I hope the community at large will listen, get uncomfortable, and grow.

    Episode 143: Inciting Meg Elison's Riot

    Episode 143: Inciting Meg Elison's Riot

     
    Episode 143 is an interview with author Meg Elison. Meg is celebrating two new books - Find Layla and Big Girl. We have a discussion about creativity during quarantine, whether the apocalypse looks like she imagined it as an author of speculative post-apocalyptic fiction, and the body positive / fat acceptance movements. A good chunk of time was spent discussing writing authentically and inclusively, and how to walk the line as a creator of realistic portrayals of diversity without falling into the pitfalls of stereotypes or problematic tropes. 
     
    Find more of Meg Elison here.
