Posted by firelyte on July 20th, 2014

Episode 88 of Inciting A Riot: the Podcast finds us inciting a privileged riot with the incomparable Crystal Blanton. Crystal is a social worker, Wiccan High Priestess, Pagan author, and expert in the fields of privilege and intersectionality.

We discuss these notions in the macrocosm of greater society as well as meditate on the privileges and disadvantages experienced in the Pagan community. Yes, we use the term 'Wiccanate' privilege. You're welcome.

Episode 85: Inciting A Gender Riot

Posted by firelyte on January 19th, 2014

Episode 85: Inciting A Gender Riot

Today we are dealing with the incredibly sensitive issue of gender. A quick note to parents: we will be discussing issues of sex, sexuality, gender identity, as well as frankly referring to male and female sex organs. If you are listening with your children, you may decide to listen to this episode first before sharing to decide if it is right for your child. While none of the topics discussed are graphic, explicit, or otherwise inappropriate, I realize this is a touchy area for many. As such, listen first and then use your judgment.

I would also like to note that there is no possible way we could discuss everything related to gender identity, sexuality, sexual orientation, or expression in one podcast. While I feel we were able to get to many important points, I am almost positive we missed something. 

Likewise, this discussion should be understood to be the opinions of the three individuals involved. Nobody on this episode is intending to speak for anyone but themselves. As such, if you feel that what someone says doesn’t fit with your definition or understanding of gender identity or the issues surrounding it, please feel free to write in. This show thrives on feedback, and yours is always welcome. 

All this being said, I invite you to enjoy this episode of the Riot. I hope it inspires an honest dialogue in your social circle and broadens your understanding of this misunderstood social group.

Episode 79: Inciting A Wild Hunt Riot

Posted by firelyte on June 28th, 2013

Episode 79 of Inciting A Riot the Podcast features an (Riotously long) interview with well-known pagan blogger, podcaster of witchy musical goodness, and Spencer Pentacle Pagan Jason Pitzl-Waters of the Wild Hunt blog.

Over the years you have no doubt read on my blog and heard on my show my fairly vocal and brash dissenting views when it came to Jason and the Wild Hunt's pagan-centric perspective. However, as you've no doubt noticed, it's a whole new Riot with a whole new view of its own. Jason graciously agreed to let bygones be bygones and stick all that water under the bridge where it belongs.

So a big thanks to Jason. If you aren't reading the Wild Hunt, add it to your reading. The Pagan perspective is definitely one that deserves to be heard and highlighted, and the WH team is doing a stellar job at that.

Now, it wouldn't be the Riot if I didn't challenge convention, and we delve into everything from his own views on confirmation bias, defining paganism, where our community is going and how we might get there, obstacles and wins for the pagan community, and he insults the musical world by choosing 1 album to rule them all!

It's a heck of a Riot, and I can't wait to hear your feedback!
