Witchy Babes at their best!

Wow! I can’t say enough great things about this podcast. Are you a new witch? Listen! Are you a witch who wants to learn new things or brush up? Listen! Like spooky, paranormal and true crime you’ve possibly never heard of? Listen! There is something for everyone and Maria and Melanie rock it every time! They’re open about their journeys and about themselves. If you’re not listening, you’re truly missing out on the opportunity to hear two best friends share their passions.

A wonderful addition!

This podcast is so different than what I normally listen to, and I absolutely love it. Maria and Melanie are just so much fun to listen to, and the amount of knowledge and research that they put into their shows is amazing. The new episodes are the highlights of my week! I’ve learned something new and had my perspective broadened by every episode, which is the best part for me. Keep up the great work, ladies! #staywitchy
