    Episode 10: Housing in the Time of Covid-19

    Episode 10: Housing in the Time of Covid-19

    In this ongoing time of crisis, creating affordable housing options is more urgent than ever. Social distancing, though crucial for public health and safety, is a luxury that many cannot afford. For every celebrity tweeting #StayHome and singing in their mask on Instagram, there are dozens more regular folx crammed into small spaces with roommates coming and going. And there are even more who have no place to shelter in at all.
    Luckily there are options, and we'll tell you about a really good option for Salem... after we rage about absentee leaders, militant re-openers, and systemic racism, obviously.

    Episode 7: Capitalism 101

    Okay Witches, this is a long one. Capitalism is a gigantic topic that's been covered by scholars and politicians alike... but in this episode, we're taking a crack at it! Join Paige and Erica for a primer on the social/economic structure we all know and hate (and if you don't know it yet, prepare to hate it!) Also, we dive into our elemental questions and talk about remembering your dreams, the importance of taking a break, and the money spells we’ve been manifesting.

Validating and glorious

Hi you both! I feel so thrilled about this podcast. I was in Salem on Saturday wearing Bernie pins when one of your co-workers encouraged me to listen to this podcast, and I can’t stop listening. I’ve been having such a tough time with the election and feeling so emotional and raw, and feeling like I’m not allowed to be so frustrated and sad about the world. So thank you for talking about this stuff from a witchy place and helping me feel less alone in all of this. <3 Keep up the awesome work.

You have a witch working at Salem Hospital!

Just wanted to say thank you again for all of the super helpful shout outs to organizations that benefit so many issues and demographics. I truly appreciated your list as well. It helps me become inspired to ways I can be an activist along with my teenage daughter.

And just wanted to add that you gotta witch working on the inside! I might not have a lot of pull in my position but I am here! I cover primary care offices and help mostly medically complex patients connect to resources in their communities all around the north shore and beyond.
I have a lot of flexibility in my position too and once I am afforded more time come Spring to be boots on the ground making more connections(Libra sun leo moon cancer rising;) and also currently buying a home, full time caregiver and mom of a teenager) I hope to be able to make an impact.
Thank you for doing what you’re doing!!

Witchcraft is activism!

Awesome conversations about local govt in Salem and what’s happening as a whole in our crumbling democracy. I’ve been a resident of Massachusetts for three years and am recently new to Salem. Really helpful to learn what’s happening locally in our amazing community. Blessed be!
