Episode 5: The Goddess in Witchcraft

Today, we’re talking all about the Goddess! Frodo Okulam, professor at Portland State University, joins us to talk about the history of the Goddess and her own journey into Witchcraft. We also discuss modern swings in Witchcraft popularity and acceptance, Magickal book and Netflix recommendations, and fully inappropriate movie that’s good for Witchy souls. Plus, Kanani’s kids have always known she keeps a cauldron and talks to spirits, but only NOW do they think their Mom is a Witch because of one surprising reason…
