For better or worse, Witches LOVE royals (for some reason). Dana Schwartz of the popular Noble Blood Podcast joins us to discuss James VI, the king who started a Witch hunt because of a travel delay during his honeymoon, and how it may have influenced MacBeth, another Witch fav! We also discuss the captivation of royals’ stories and the evolution of Witch hunts. Digressions include Dolly Parton, Elvira, Tori Amos and Kanani’s (sort of) review of Wandavision. A listener may have experience an apparition of Hekate. How can they know if what they experienced was real? Extended, ad-free episode on Patreon.
