It’s a scary time and Witches everywhere want to help. What can Witches do in the midst of a global crisis? Do spells and prayers even do anything? Madame Pamita returns to talk to us about how Witches can help people on the other side of the world through prayers, spells, and direct action. She also shapes the context and history of the current situation in Ukraine. Sabrina The Teenaged Witch (Not A Teenager) Transcriber Witch joins us to help us perform a ritual for Ukraine and explore ways to support those in need. Plus, who would Kanani call for bail?
