    Episode 77: Is Paganism Right for You? || 10 Questions to Ask Yourself

    Episode 77: Is Paganism Right for You? || 10 Questions to Ask Yourself

    Get a transcript of this episode by clicking here.

    The topic of paganism for beginners gets brought up often. However, the amount of information on the internet along about paganism is astounding. As a pagan myself, I feel like I can give a unique perspective on whether paganism might be right for you as a beginner. Please know that these are solely my own opinions and they may not resonate with you. That's okay!

    Episode 75: Live Q&A || You Asked, I Answered

    Click here to download a transcript for this episode.

    This week I didn't feel like I had the brainpower to write notes for an entire topic and talk about it. So instead, I did a LIVE Q&A on YouTube - anyone that was there got a chance to ask questions and we just had a nice chat. Next week, I hope to have an actual topic put together.

    EDIT: Listening back to this, I realize that I was bumping my microphone cord and it is making an obnoxious sound...I'm so sorry! I just couldn't get with it this week lol

    Episode 74: Trusting your Gut || Mental Health Traps in Spirituality

    Episode 74: Trusting your Gut || Mental Health Traps in Spirituality

    Click here to get the episode transcript.

    Note: This is a LIVE recording, so the format has changed slightly! Also, I'm still working on perfecting the audio of where I record now that I've moved. 

    I saw a tweet going around that gave me the idea for this topic. The tweet talked about how the idea of trusting your gut doesn't take into account social conditioning, fear, trauma, and other environmental factors.  

    - Tweet: https://twitter.com/DurgadasADuriel/status/1204109906040614914  
    - Shadow Work Video: https://youtu.be/O1_UKy1gox4
    - Shadow Work Podcast: https://wp.me/pawqtP-2FG
    - Kelly-Ann Maddox: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO3TVUyNxIdMdR9RljTIzaQ

    I really wanted to discuss this because I'm a witch with mental health issues that has a hard time discerning whether or not the feelings I get are legit or if they're just my anxiety. These are mental health traps, in my opinion, because we are goaded into this idea of trusting ourselves - but what happens when we can't?

Had to fast forward almost halfway though the whole episode before she started talking about the topic.

AngieR1010 ,

I needed this!

I love this podcast. Megan gives information in a down to earth manner and gives historical content which is both entertaining and educational. She is inclusive, warm, and positive in her delivery. Thank you for creating this.
EDIT: 4/1/2020 Thank you so much for doing an episode regarding misinformation. I’m an RN and this pandemic is making my head explode. Thank you for stressing how important it is to think critically and fact check. I appreciate you.

FN New Guy ,

Very informative!

A very easy to follow podcast with great information. Very baby witch friendly. She explains concepts in a plain talk manner. I look forward to every podcast. I just found the you tube as well.
