Tarot for the End of Times - A Podcast with Sarah Cargill

By Sarah Cargill
How do we commune with metaphysical archetypes and glean wisdom from ancestors of the collective during times of deep change? This podcast explores this question through the lens of the Major Arcana cards of the Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck.

Sarah Cargill (she/they) is an artist and cultural worker working primarily in the medium of sound art and performance. Her work articulates and is the alchemical consequence of Black interiority, somatic memory, and queer intimacies.
