Talk Jungle to Me

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

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!
