Minisode 3.2: July Grab Bag

Happy full moon and lunar eclipse! We hope you’re having a wonderful summer. In this minisode we talk about our recent magical experiences with art, gardening, beekeeping, travel, and new spiritual practices–plus some fabulous witchy recommendations.

Please note: Our use of the terms man/male and woman/female in this and all of our discussions is in no way intended to be trans-exclusive or to reinforce an essentialist binary model of gender. While we often use this language as a shorthand, we recognize, support, and welcome people of all genders.

Our theme song is “Moon and Spruce” by Sarah Little Drum.

Here’s a listening guide for the episode. (For a description of our segments, go here.)
