This week we're having a drink with Julian at The Hamilton, getting the dirt on one of the most well-known forms of playing with fate: tarot. We go into detail about how he got into the practice, how to look for the meaning behind each card, and some of his personal experiences.

…Then Thor Murdered the Plot

November 21st, 2017

00:0000:00

In this week's episode, your inebriated host almost gets punched in the face! Which the sober editor would be all for. You may remember our guest from the very first episode we aired: Asbjorn joins us again for a survey of a few of his favorite myths and legends from across various cultures that have to do with the importance of alcohol in various religions. And, for good measure, we get some insight on how to start brewing at home, as Asbjorn has also been doing that extremely well for several years.

The Hymn to Ninkasi referenced in the episode can be found here!

Sufis and Sex and Spirituality Oh My

November 9th, 2017

00:0000:00

This week we've got a Middle Eastern spin on things as we chat with Cienna about Sufism and the spirituality (and sexuality) of dance! Arguably the most active form of meditation, we explore what it means to combine dance with prayer. Cienna takes us into the roots of Sufism, as well as how to stay inspired and motivated when one's career is in the arts.

Please check out Cienna's studio and all that she and her troupes do at the TDLI website, where they have dance classes, charity events, and more.

All’s Fair in Love & Beer Pong

September 30th, 2017

00:0000:00

Join us as we discuss the dangers of conformity and how partying can go too far! This week we have a drink with Moira and examine the concepts of hazing as an indoctrination ritual, Greek Life as a precursor to idealized American white collar culture, and the inequality of social responsibility among Frats, Sororities, and Honors Societies. We also briefly cover the weight of importance given to secondhand objects and adopted cultures, secret societies, the classic BBC show "Jeeves & Wooster", and drop in some Beastie Boys trivia.

As a note: The queer frat briefly mentioned in this episode was Delta Lambda Phi.

Das Odinsbüt (PART 2)

August 8th, 2017

00:0000:00

We're back with the remainder of our two-part episode! This time, we finally get around to talking about Forn Seith vs Asatru, as well as finishing up our conversation on possession! And that's just the tip of the ice berg. We also talk about matrilineal ancestor worship, Shakespeare, ancient gender politics, the mechanics of shield fighting, and the Jesuits! That is, we drunkenly ramble about those topics. Semi-coherently.

PLEASE NOTE: due to equipment issues, this episode is extremely quiet at the beginning, and it is recommended that you turn up the volume very high, or listen with headphones. We sincerely apologize.

Links to videos of shield-only combat are forthcoming.

This episode was split into two parts, the first of which is here. And if you're looking for more things to listen to, you should check out the other podcasts on the Podcast Jukebox Network!

He Don’t Practice Santeria… (PART 1)

July 26th, 2017

00:0000:00

Join us this week as we have a drink(s) over a discussion about Santeria, a little bit about Forn Seith, possession, subjective reality, and ecstatic experiences across cultures and time periods! We compare the different theories behind Santeria found in Africa, Latin America, and the United States, as well as what that means in practical terms. We chat about religious BDSM, where Artificial Intelligence fits into the sacred, and try to be coherent and not crack jokes the entire time.

WARNING: This was recorded during the 4th of July. As such, there is the sound of fireworks in the background. They're a soft rumble, but still could be unpleasant for any listeners with PTSD.

The book mentioned in this episode was Mona Lisa Overdrive.

This episode had to be split into two parts, the second of which will be posted at the beginning of August. Make sure that you check out the other podcasts on the Podcast Jukebox Network in the meantime!

Sex, Death, & Rock n’ Roll

July 3rd, 2017

00:0000:00

This week we're having a drink with Nick Tanek, to talk about his latest book The Coolest Way to Kill Yourself, and how one mourns a partner coming out of the intensity of a BDSM relationship. We also go into some detail of death and mourning in the 90s rave scene that Tanek grew up in, and the ritual aspects of both kink and rave culture. Music references abound as we chat about how he was able to find his zen---and love---in the thick of all the crazy shit he's been through.

You can check out Nick's website here at The Coolest Way. And you can reach out to him on FetLife.

Referenced in the episode was another show on the Podcast-Jukebox network: Off The Cuffs, as well as several bands (some of which you can find here).
