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).

Join us this week as we take a tour of the culture, history, language, and religion of the Peruvian basin with Christian Brown! We spend the first ten or so minutes chatting about the work that brought him to the area: cataloguing the native languages newly forming along the Amazon. While he was there, he was shown firsthand the culture of herbal healing and oral tradition by a gentleman named Adolpho. We discuss the concepts of a Curandero vs a Brujareia, what ayahuasca and similar plants mean in a cultural and religious context, and drink whiskey. Give a listen!

The Charms of Crone School

May 2nd, 2017

00:0000:00

This week we chat with the latest in a long line of CRONES! Alright, that's not quite it. Our guest this week comes from a family tradition that's a blend of Stregheria and la Veccia Religione (the former of which is an Italian folk tradition heavily based in Catholicism, the latter of which is an Italian-American revivalist religion that borrows heavily from Streghe, but also has many Wiccan elements). She talks about her family structure, how and what she and her relatives do, and we try very hard to stay awake despite sleep deprivation! Check it out!
