    Storytellers & Tricksters with Priscilla Howe

    The Archetypal Tarot Podcast celebrates the arrival of Spring with a special guest, storyteller Priscilla Howe. She is the author of the recently released sampler of Bulgarian Folktales called Clever, Kind, Tricky and Sly. With so much happening in the world, with an eye particularly on Eastern Europe, Priscilla and Cyndera find hope, laughter and wisdom within the trickster archetype, embodied by "Clever Peter" and also the old woman archetype "Baba Marta." Priscilla tells two tales from her book and Cyndera follows suit with a made-up Bulgarian-inspired story of her own. This podcast is full of heart as it unveils aspects of the trickster that can be kind as well as sly.

    About author Priscilla Howe: Storyteller Priscilla Howe has traveled the world with a bagful of puppets and a headful of stories since 1993.

Wonderfully insightful!

The ATP is one of the absolute best tarot resources out there! The personable and charming hosts present big ideas in a way that is approachable and mind-expanding at the same time, relating the tarot cards to a variety of contemporary and historical figures and events. There are few tarot books, websites, or other types of resources that have deepened my understanding of the major cards more than this podcast. Thanks Julienne and Cyndera! --Weston, host of the Root Lock Radio tarot podcast

JulesYenn ,

both the most educational and enjoyable Tarot podcast on the net.

I found this podcast whilst looking to get some basic knowledge of the Tarot. Couldn't believe what I'd stumbled across! Julienne and Cyndera draw on myth, archetypes and Jungian psychology to produce an incredibly in depth walk through of the Major Arcana. At the same time, they pitch this in a down to earth style that is accessible to anyone, whether you're familiar with these kind of concepts or not. They're also incredibly fun people to listen to - so I think this has to be both the most educational and enjoyable Tarot podcast on the net.

Where are the Episodes that Precede The Hermit?

I’ve really enjoyed this podcast so far. But in iTunes, it seems the episodes prior to the one about The Hermit are missing.
