Episode 11 - The Business of Being Pagan

00:0000:00
Hello again everybody, and thank you for tuning in to The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast. I know it's been a little while since the last episode, but once you hear my new intro music, wacky sound effects and a solid 10 minutes of me begging for money you'll understand why.

After I finish telling you how badly I want you to consider becoming a contributor to the podcast either through my Podbean Crowdfunding page, by shopping at any of my affiliates, or by buying my cool stuff from my Etsy Store- we talk about prosperity and pagan business.

The episode focuses on things I've learned about the metaphysical store business, what to do and avoid if you open your own, and types of stores to absolutely avoid giving your hard-earned money to. While doing this I review Drawing the Three of Coins by Terri Paajanen (for full review, see the blog) which I gave 🔮🔮🔮🔮/5!

I also introduce a new segment to the show called SKETCHY HERBS AND MAGIC ROCKS for all of you herb and crystal enthusiasts out there.
If you're interested in buying Patchouli plants, seeds, or dried you can click here to buy it from Richters or here to buy the oil.
To check out some rough pyrite from Stonebridge click here, or here for an awesome pyrite pendulum.
Those links come with the added bonus of knowing you supported what I know is your absolute favourite witchy podcast of all time!

Bad Ass Old Witches and Magickal Fashionistas

00:0000:00

Hello again and thank you for tuning in to The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast, the show where I do a little ranting, raving, and wand-waving. I am your host, Paige, The Fat Feminist Witch and this is the second time I recorded this episode today because the first time my thumb slipped and deleted the first recording.
I know.
ANYWAYS today I'm talking about my recent challenge to live my life according to the daily advice Laurie Cabot posts to her twitter account, and how it affected me and my magic. I talk about the value in working magic into your daily dress and recommend not one, but 3 books by Ellen Dugan. Even I'm rolling my eyes. You can of course find the full play by play with annoyingly adorable photographs of me on my wordpress blog at http://thefatfeministwitch.wordpress.com

In the newest Book Review of Sahdows segment I review the second book in Ellen Dugan's Legacy of Magick series - Secret of The Rose (hint: I loved it). You get to hear how high-pitched my voice gets when I talk about sexy stuff and how much I love really badass old lady witches. (hint: it's a lot.)

So sit back and relax and then please feel free to bother me all over the internet. I'm on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter and I have an email address if you live in 2004.

B.R.O.S and Cons with Special Guest Jose C.

00:0000:00

The podcast where we do a little ranting, raving, and wand-waving! We’ll be examining witchcraft and paganism from a modern, fat, feminist perspective; with a cauldron full of sass.

Today I’ve got a new Book Review of Shadows in which I review Pagan Planet: Being, Believing and Belonging in the 21st Century,published by Moon Books.

I also talk about my wonderful experience at ConVocation2016 in Michigan, the big pagan convention of the Midwest. I met Ellen Dugan, y’all!

My special co-host tonight is my good friend Jose… Cuervo. And  I used the new Podbean app, which I like but doesn’t let me edit! Sooo…. This should be fun.

Readin’ and Weedin’

00:0000:00

After the very long and well researched previous episode of the podcast, I decided to take it a little easy and talk about some current events here in Windsor.
First I review a new book  - Legacy of Magick by Ellen Dugan. Ms. Dugan is an incredibly popular pagan non-fiction author and it shines through in her fun, romantic and witchy fiction series.
Today Windsor's Higher Limits vapour lounge was featured in an article for high times, which was then featured in an article in the Windsor Star about that article. How cool is that? It's another episode about Cannabis today, so sit back and enjoy.

The music you can, far too faintly, hear in the background is from the album Live at Monty Hall with Jeff Sarge of Reggae Schoolroom, which you can check out and download here.

Godless Heathens!

00:0000:00

Today we're talking about secular witchcraft and how not to get discouraged by your lack of "Faith".
Most resources and books that deal with witchcraft approach it from a religious standpoint, but what if you don't really think you're talking to the ancient god of thunder? Are you a failure of a witch? I certainly don't think so.

The podcast will now be published every other week, to avoid burnout and to allow me to write better blog posts - which you can find on my new website at http://thefatfeministwitch.wordpress.com!

I also introduce a new regular feature called BOOK REVIEW OF SHADOWS where I review a new fiction or non-fiction book on witchcraft and magic.

The Wiccan History Lesson

00:0000:00

Today I discuss witchcraft's more modern history - specifically Wicca's origins - and the disturbing trend of perpetuating wiccan mythology as real history!

From the mythology of The Burning Times, to Gerald Gardner and the invention of Wicca, to Doreen Valiente's cateye glasses, the Lady Liberty League, Wiccan Prisoners, Silver Ravenwolf, and even The Craft, we're exploring the real history of Witchcraft in the 20th century.

My Big Fat New Year’s Resolutions!

00:0000:00

Inspired by both Sarai Walker's new novel DIETLAND and the blog post 7 Fierce Fat Girl Resolutions by Chrystal Bougon on Curvy Girl Lingerie I am making fat positive resolutions for 2016! In addition to continuing my struggle to mourn and let go of the skinny version of myself I've always held on to, I'm going to wear a very special dress, ask for a seat belt extender on a plane, find a doctor who doesn't suck and even be nicer to myself and others! It's a nondenominational holiday miracle! This episodes features my very special friend, cursing, for the first time ever.

What are you body positive/ fat resolutions for 2016? I want to hear all about how terrible you are!

Weed, Women & Witches

00:0000:00

On the 3rd episode of The Fat Feminist Witch podcast we're talking about how women have dominated the legal cannabis industry, how there aren't enough rad female stoners for me to idolize, how odd it is that witchcraft has become so sober and how you can incorporate cannabis into your witchcraft.

I also talk about this awesome piece of orgonite that has a hemp leaf in place of a quartz crystal!

I am your lovely(trust me) host, Paige, from the great white north and I will be talking to you about fat activism, feminism and witchcraft, and how those three things come together. This episode is jut a quickie where I introduce myself and explain where I came from and how I landed on this idea.
