Rank #1: 9. The Wiccan Rede

Podcast cover
Read more

The Wiccan Rede is the foundational moral principle of Wicca. As it’s one of the larger forms of Witchcraft practiced today, I thought we’d dig into it and understand where it came from, what it means, and why it’s important. Also I spend a minute debunking the Law of Return/Threefold Law, so even if you don’t care about Wicca, you might find that bit entertaining. Like you can pull it out whenever some jackass on Tumblr tries to tell you that you’re “witching wrong” or some other bull. Just like blow their minds and stuff. Music: “The Man With One Eye,” “Meteor,” “So I Said It,” “Untitled Nonsense” (Trae Dorn)

Rank #2: 8. Technopaganism

Podcast cover
Read more

On this eighth episode of the podcast, we’re talking about good old Technopaganism. Well, “Technowitchcraft” is probably the better term, but I’m old and from the 90s. In any case, the point is that there’s a lot of ways that technology can be incorporated into Witchcraft, but there are a lot of questions we have to ask along the way. Or something. I don’t know. Here’s that photo of my desk I promised. Music: “The Man With One Eye,” “An Experiment,” “So I Said It,” “Untitled Nonsense” (Trae Dorn)

Rank #3: 7. Be Ridiculous

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode of the podcast, the topic is the importance of accepting that we’re all ridiculous human beings and that’s it’s a good thing. Witchcraft should be done with a sense of play, and we should all keep that in mind before we take ourselves too seriously. Because when we take ourselves too seriously, none of us are remotely pleasant to be around. Doing witchcraft by rote isn’t the best idea, gatekeeping is bad, and there’s probably not a wrong way to do a spell. Unless you like light yourself on fire or something. Try not to do that. Music: “The Man With One Eye,” “So I Said It,” “Untitled Nonsense” (Trae Dorn)

Rank #4: 6. Witchcraft on Television

Podcast cover
Read more

How witches are represented on television and media has always been a controversial topic in the modern witchcraft community, and 2018 has seen several high profile series launch with the reboot of Charmed and the adaptation of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In this episode, Trae looks at these new shows and how they represent witchcraft in popular culture — and how they fall short. Music: “The Man With One Eye,” “So I Said It,” “Untitled Nonsense” (Trae Dorn)

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode of BS-Free Witchcraft, Trae attempts to cover a topic from one of the show’s listeners: How the heck do you get started in Witchcraft in the first place? What we end up with is twenty minutes of Trae attempting to cover this exceptionally broad topic which is, at the very least, entertaining… and hopefully informative. Hopefully. Books Mentioned in this Episode: * Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham * Drawing Down the Moon by Margot Adler * Grovedaughter Witchery by Bree NicGarran Music: “The Man With One Eye” (Trae Dorn), “Broad Strokes” (Trae Dorn), “Peach Cobbler” (Stock Music),”So I Said It” (Trae Dorn), “CAmFG” (Trae Dorn)

Rank #7: 3. The History of Wicca

Podcast cover
Read more

On this episode Trae digs deep into the history of Wicca, and tries to give the most accurate history of the religion as he can. I mean, yeah, we know this is a general Witchcraft podcast, but Wicca is the most widely practiced form of Witchcraft in the US, UK, Canada and Australia… so how it got started is kind of important for the modern Witchcraft movement. And trust me, there aren’t any pulled punches here. Music: “The Man With One Eye” (Trae Dorn), “Meteor” (Trae Dorn), “Bricket Wood/Crowley’s a Jackass” (Trae Dorn), “Fifth Avenue Stroll” (Stock Music), “Should Have Never” (Trae Dorn), “So I Said It” (Trae Dorn)

Rank #8: 2. How To Become a Witch

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode Trae tackles the question “How do you become a witch?” The answer, of course, turns out to be amazingly easy — do some witchcraft. Of course, there’s more to the episode than that. Dragging fellow witch Lee Bradford onto the show, Trae and Lee tell their personal stories about how they came to their (different forms) of witchcraft. Afterwards they discuss things like gatekeeping and other obstacles new witches might find starting their practice. Music: “The Man With One Eye” (Trae Dorn), “Buddy” (Stock Music), “So I Said It” (Trae Dorn), “Meander” (Trae Dorn)

Rank #9: 1. The Basics

Podcast cover
Read more

In this inaugural episode of BS-Free Witchcraft Trae decides to start at the very beginning. It’s a very good place to start. Mainly this episode focuses on the basics of the modern witchcraft movement — because how can we have a discussion if we don’t actually define the terms we’re working with? From defining “witchcraft” itself to poking at random corners, we’re covering as much as we can cram into a half an hour. You know how like every witchcraft website has a FAQ page? This is the podcast equivalent of that. Music: “The Man With One Eye” (Trae Dorn), “Curtain Call” (Stock Music)
