Favorite Podcast

My favorite podcast I’m listening to at the moment. Kristin and Kate are fantastic hosts who coverage a wide variety of subjects including crystals, mythology, astrology, moon magick and more. My only complaint is that it’s not longer as I could listen them talk for hours. Highly recommend!
