Crow Talk - Attempting Murder Appearance on Flatline 2 Beatline by NightShayde
As we've had some technical difficulties as well as our own brushes with Covid 19 related problems, March's Episode of Attempting Murder is in a state of editing and patching to make it something coherent. In the mean time, we offer you this, from our conversation on Flatline2Beatline this past February. If you haven't checked out NightShayde's podcast you really should! You can find it here: Flatline2Beatline I promise I'll have something up for March by the weekend and hopefully April will be less fraught! Until then, Be safe and Be well. Raevan, River and Willow

Attempting Murder - Samhain 2019 Tarot Reading Supplemental Episode - Hot & Dirty Edit
This is the previously published opening portion of our Episode 1 for Samhain 2019, in which we share our seasonal tarot readings. We realized it was long, probably not that interesting to folks and so, with our listener drop off after Episode 1, we decided to make an ugly edit and pull this portion out of the podcast and present it by itself for those who are actually interested in our Tarot work. Thanks for Listening.

Attempting Murder - Episode 1 - Hot & Dirt Edit - Samhain 2019 and Modern Morrigan Worship
This episode has been edited for brevity. It is a hot and dirty edit, meaning none of the usual or we hope, usual flare is in place, but the content has been winnowed down to strictly what pertains to the subject - which is Samhain 2019 and our celebration of it. If you're interested in all the show notes for this episode, most of the pertinent information is in our Episode 2 show notes. If you're wondering why we chose to do this edit at this stage, we did so because it became clear to us by our analytics that folks were listening to the first episode and then never listening again. The previous version of this episode had over an hour on Samhain tarot readings which, probably wasn't the best look. That content is now available for those who want it in a "supplemental" podcast which I'll be posting today. Thank you for listening, please don't discount us based on this first episode, they very clearly get better after this one.
