    Audiomancy with Keats Ross

    Audiomancy with Keats Ross

    In this episode, Erik is joined by Keats Ross, musician, magician, mystic, and master of We The Hallowed. We The Hallowed is an art collective, and home of Keats' many projects such as the Pragmagick Podcast and his musical endeavors such as Dakota Slim. We talk about using music to create sigils, exploring consciousness, and the downfall of Disinfo. We also talk about how Keats got Mitch Horowitz on his podcast. It is a great episode and rounds out the Pragmagick-Alexxcast-My Alchemical Bromance cross-interview bonanza.

    This episode was recorded in a dark corner of the patio at the Muddy Rudder Public House in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland.

    Musical Interlude
    The musical interlude is "Wylin'", a track off of Dakota Slim's latest album, Cactus Crown.

    Also, make sure you enjoy this audiomancy from Keats!

    Guest Appearance: Erik on the Alexxcast Episode 319

    Erik was happy to be on the Alexxcast again! Here are Alexx's show notes:

    Listen to a live mystical rite as Alexx invites Erik Arneson back on to magically chant the podcast back into a proper numerical sequencing. That lasts like 3 minutes, then we answer listener questions and talk about all sorts of esoteric, occulty goodness. Enjoy!

    Picatrix Decans with J Swofford

    Picatrix Decans with J Swofford

    Join artist J Swofford and host Erik at Hopworks Urban Brewery for a discussion on the Picatrix Decans. J is the creator of the Picatrix Decans talisman deck. They discuss astrological magic, homebrewing, astrological brewing, and the Picatrix Decans.

    When we look at the Picatrix decans, we compare descriptions and notes from both the Warnock-Greer Picatrix and the Attrell Picatrix. We discuss the origins of magical images and how talismans can be created from the imagery of the decans.

    We are also joined briefly by Scotty, our server at Hopworks, who shares with us some interesting facts about Ancient Egypt and the stars! I love Portland.

    Guest Appearance: The Cosmic Keys Podcast

    Guest Appearance: The Cosmic Keys Podcast

    I really enjoyed being on The Cosmic Keys Podcast with Dan and Scarlet! Here's how they described this episode.

    Dan and Scarlet open the episode with an astrology and Tarot forecast for the week of April 1, 2019 to April 7, 2019, followed by an interview with the host of My Alchemical Bromance, Erik Arneson. We talk about the formation of Erik's awesomely titled podcast, his experience with the "weird" community of occultists in his home city of Portland, Oregon, his experience as a fully initiated Mason, plus a lot more occult and esoteric ramblings. This is a fun and wide ranging discussion that you wont want to miss!

    EP 49 – The Magician and the Fool

    EP 49 – The Magician and the Fool

    In this episode, Erik interviews the hosts of The Magician and the Fool Podcast, Janus and Dominic. They dive right into what it means to be a magician, but the conversation explores Renaissance magic, the Greek Magical Papyri, Norse mythology, and Pittsburgh. How do the Magician and the Fool relate to the Trickster? We explore cultural archetypes through Norse mythology, other mythology, crazy anecdotes, and weird experiences.

    We also talk about the experience of running an occult podcast, and how the guests we bring on influence and change our lives in ways that we hadn't anticipated. Talking to these guys was amazing. I strongly urge you to check out their podcast to check out all of the amazing interviews they do. Click here to see!

Magickal goodness

Listen to this show. It makes pleasant feelings in your brain.

I love the subject matter and the interviews, so five stars are well deserved. However, I cannot handle the beer talk. When they go off on tangents about beer, the tone alone gives me uncomfortable chills and i need to fast forward make it stop. Maybe give a trigger warning before you go into these beer discussions.

Beer and the occult...it doesn't get any better than this.
