Episode 15 – A Very Fat Feminist Halloween Special
The Halloween episode of the Podcast from 2016!
“In this very special and spooky episode of the podcast I’m talking about some of the super fun myths and legends associated with the Halloweeniest version of the witch! I cover why brooms fly, green skin, twitching noses and in Sketchy Herbs and Magic Rocks I talk about magical uses for REAL Eye of Newt and the walls of the Emerald City!
I also read my favourite spooky story – The Green Ribbon! This episode is full of some good old fashioned halloween fun. “

Eye of Newt, Flying Ointments, Nose Twitches & Frog Princes: Part 2
“Pointy hats, black cats, toads, frogs, creepy potions and flying brooms have dominated our views of witches for hundreds of years. The witch is such an interesting piece of myth that new legends and standards are being invented all the time. Purple eyes, green skin, twitching noses and flying vacuum cleaners have all become recognizable just in the last century. Since Halloween and Samhain are fast approaching, let’s look at where some of the myths that make up witchy halloween costumes come from.”
Episode 18 – Interview with Natalie Zaman
“Thanks for tuning in to The Fat Feminist Podcast, today I’m doing my ranting, raving, and wand-waving with Natalie Zaman, author of Magical Destinations of the Northeast: Sacred Sites, Occult Oddities, and Magical Monuments! In addition to discussing the book and being a responsible magickal traveler, Natalie and I discuss graveyard souvenirs and grave rubbings!”

If this isn’t on your Halloween playlist, I mean, what are we even doing here?
Book Review of Shadows: Old Style Conjure by Starr Casas
This is the best resource I’ve found for those who want to start working with ancestors and spirits. The book talks about ancestral altars, offerings to spirits, and graveyard etiquette (among other hoodoo topics!).
