Episode 68: Our 2 Year Anniversary Supreme With Najah Lightfoot, David Shi, And Annwyn Avalon

A special thanks to our sponsors! See below for listener specials. Wow! We’re celebrating two years of doing this podcast! In this SUPREME-sized episode, we are bringing back three people who have specifically shaped our path: Najah Lightfoot, David Shi, and Annwyn Avalon. The witches reflect on the events at the Capitol and revel in our favorite memories from the podcast, including how we started it. Courtney has an epic rant. A 16 year old listener feels pulled to Witchcraft but doesn’t know where to start…also, how do they tell their dad???
