Episode 180: Inciting A Witch vs Witch Riot - with Thorn Mooney

Inciting A Riot

Being an author shares a lot of similarities with being a witch. Much of the work we do is alone, toiling away at improving skills or deepening our knowledge about obscure topics. Should we work in groups it's typically in very small circles of trusted peers. The other way that witches and authors are alike is that the general public has a lot of very wrong opinions about what it's like to be one.  So, that's why Thorn Mooney, author of the new (phenomenal) book The Witch's Path and I sat down to chat about publishing, marketing, the pressures that come with authorship, the weird authority we place on books, and the writing process itself. It's a long conversation in which we interview each other about our respective work, our goals, and where we each want to go from here.  You can find more about Thorn Mooney here.   If you like this show and want to support it, there are a number of ways to help.

Modern Wicca with Thorn Mooney - The Salem Witch Podcast Episode 3

The Salem Witch Podcast

Thorn Mooney is among the most fascinating, intelligent Wiccans I’ve come across on the internet. I discovered her via her YouTube channel, where she explores what it’s like to actually live in both the ritualistic world of a practicing Wiccan and the very modern world of a content creator with a day job. While many shy away from exploring this strange space, Thorn instead dives headlong into the weirdness offering videos with titles like, “I’m Not a Professional Witch and That’s Fine with Me,” “Don’t Put Other Witches on Pedestals,” and “Experiences Being a Pagan Content Creator,” among many others. We spoke a few months back and, after a lot of technical drama that’s not thankfully resolved, by the way, be very careful which podcast hosting provider you choose, I’m thrilled to release our conversation as it ranks, not just among the best on this show, but also as one of the more grounded esoteric conversations I’ve ever had. We explore a wide variety of topics, all circling around the convergence between what we might call modern life and Wicca or Witchcraft broadly. She wrote Traditional Wicca, A Seeker’s Guide for Llewellyn, with whom she has another upcoming book tentatively titled Next Level Witchcraft. Links to that and all her social profiles below. 00:02:11 Skip to Interview 00:02:30 How did Thorn Mooney get interested in Witchcraft? 00:03:58 If Witchcraft becomes mainstream, does it lose its value? 00:07:19 How does Thorn feel when she comes across blatant commercialization in Witchcraft? 00:14:38 Is the Witch Aesthetic Necessary? 00:17:57 Has Wicca Overshadowed Other Forms of Witchcraft? 00:20:42 How Did the Formalized Study of Religion Impact Thorn’s Wiccan Faith? 00:27:01 How Does Living in the South Impact a Wiccan Practice? 00:37:29 How Does Skepticism Impact Practicing Wicca? 00:41:16 Does Having a Cosmological Framework Matter As Much As Personal Experience? 00:45:15 What Has Being a Pagan, Wiccan Content Creator on YouTube Been Like Over the Past Decade? 00:51:39 Is It Difficult to Navigate the Ethical Constraints Imposed By Social Media as a Wiccan Creator? 01:02:01 Thorn Mooney Explores Her Path Toward Writing Her First Book 01:08:39 How Do You Tell Which Wiccan Books Are Worth Reading? 01:16:58 What Is Thorn Reading? 01:22:51 A Subtle Form of Sexism in Pagan Publishing 01:26:56 Where to Find Thorn Mooney’s Work  Traditional Wicca: A Seeker's Guide - https://amzn.to/3iVqnDP Thorn on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thorn.mooney/ Her Blog: https://thornthewitch.wordpress.com/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPX1hub6z9z_nMsWGoZk1Bw Twitter: https://twitter.com/tarotskeptic?lang=en Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thornthewitch/?hl=en Find way more about all things Salem at https://tosalem.com/ Facebook: facebook.com/tosalemsite Instagram: instagram.com/tosalemsite Twitter: twitter.com/tosalemsite YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQ0np_8AxxWpjlyBTwYdbFw
