PODCAST ROUND UP: OCCULTURE FOR YOUR EARS
As the name of the podcast would suggest, Fat Feminist Witch explores witchcraft through a modern feminist perspective. She discusses race issues within witch communities, such as How White Witches Talk About Black Magick, activism and magic, and using witchcraft to cope with the ever-present patriarchy. She also interviews some awesome guests, like Natalie Zaman, who authored Magical Destinations of the Northeast: Sacred Sites, Occult Oddities, and Magical Monuments (which Fat Feminist Witch also reviewed on her podcast), and Lilith Dorsey, who wrote Love Magic.
Spirits Podcast mixes two of our favorite things— magic and cocktails. In each episode, co-hosts Amanda and Julia pour a drink and recount different myths from a variety of cultural backgrounds. In fact, they do a fantastic job aligning their episodes with current events, such as their Pride-inspired telling of the Australian Aboriginal story of the Rainbow Serpent and Wonder Woman and the Amazons. Overall, this podcast is fun to listen to whether you’re alone and sober or drunk and with your friends.
Co-hosts Stephanie Simbari, a comedian, yogi, and spiritual seeker, and Elizabeth Kott, former Rachel Zoe employee and current creative director, bring conversations of wellness and wide-range spirituality with humor in this podcast. They make crystal healing trendy by discussing it with actress Emma Roberts, but also keep it real by having an in-depth and educational discussion with renowned shaman, Colleen McCann. Whether the hosts are discussing alchemy or nutrition, you’ll finish every episode with a renewed desire to connect with your spirituality and wishing they were your friends.
This podcast gives old myths and legends a more modern and adult spin. You can tune in every Wednesday to hear stories that range from tales of Vikings to dragons and that cover thousands of years. This is a great choice to listen to when you would rather focus on how fucked up the world the world used to be instead of how focusing on how fucked up it is today.
