By McCalla Ann
A bi-weekly interview style cast on occult education with an emphasis on philosophy, psychology, theology, and critical thinking. Join your host McCalla Ann, folk witch and kabbalistic scholar, as she engages in discussions with other practitioners of the occult which honor that harmonious and liminal space between theory and praxis.
Dalanah of the Moon Matters podcast joins us this week to help explore what it means to be a stoic, how stoicism fits into astrology, and why allowing ourselves to view fate with a sense of awe may actually be the key to setting ourselves free. We know that taking on the hat of determinism can seem scary, especially to magicians who want to reshape the world according to their Will. I think this is a very fine aspiration, but as you listen to this episode I want magicians most of all to keep this quote by Arthur Schopenhauer in the back of your head; “A man can do as he wills, but not Will as he wills”. To find more on Dalanah, check out her instagram @moonmatters.astro and her website www.moonmattersastrology.com, where you can listen to her absolutely outstanding podcast on Hellenistic Astrology as well as her book suggestions for people interested in learning more about stoicism.

Magic as Queer Liberation
Guest Austin of BanexBramble joins us this week to talk about plant spirits, earth based ritual, and dance as centered roles of his magic practice. In our exploration we touch on my favorite definition of witchcraft, that of Queer Liberation. How can witchcraft be used as an embodied experience to bridge the gap between being Othered and Free? How can we explore the lines of madness in order to embody the other more fully? In what ways do song and dance allow us to more deeply connect with spirit? All these questions are explored, and we even found some time to talk about magic ritual and othering in the classic horror film Susperia. So join us as we move about the chthonic and wild spaces of the Other lands, and how they can be explored to liberate and exalt both the self and all lands here and in between.

Robots and their Wildness
Guest Joshua Madara joins us this week to talk about his work in technomancy and his views on the application of robots in magic. In this very first episode of the SaturnVox podcast, we explore what it means to be human (and potentially more than human) and dance our way through conversations on the liminal dream of living and the constraints of language within the body and mind. So come join in, and allow yourself to play with thought experiments that question reality and produce only paradox. It's going to be a wild ride.
