Episode 156 of Inciting A Riot is an interview with "Sarah". Her name has been changed and identity protected in order to discuss her profession: being a phone psychic. Were her identity to be revealed, she would almost certainly lose her job and possibly face legal action. For this reason, I'm not releasing the video version of this episode on Patreon as per usual.

 

Sarah talked to me about what it's really like working for a psychic hotline, including the interview process, quality control, abusive behavior by both the psychics and clients and pretty much anything else you've ever wanted to know about the realities of these businesses. I found it to be a fascinating discussion and think you will, too.

Episode 153 is an interview with Marika Clymer, an Own Voices Japanese-Ainu American reiki practitioner whose efforts to decolonize this traditional Japanese healing modality on social media have garnered her a lot of attention. She pulls no punches in discussing the many ways white practitioners unapologetically take from BIPOC spiritualities and the ways in which many of these practices have been white-washed and sanitized to appeal to white audiences in the United States. 

 

Some topics in the discussion include: The medicalizing of reiki in the 19th century, internalized racism both in and out of BIPOC communities, the idea of becoming a "reiki master" over a weekend, "love and light", performing reiki remotely, honesty and integrity when it comes to discussing your spiritual experiences, and drag queens.

Episode 152 welcomes back author, artist, and all-around great guy Aidan Wachter as we celebrate the release of his second book Weaving Fate: Hypersigils, Changing the Past, & Telling True Lies. Aidan's independently published books have made him a well-respected, best-selling Pagan author without going through the traditional "Big 2" publishing route. We spend some time not only talking about the content of his book but about the nature of Pagan publishing and how scholarship will change in the coming years. 

 

Find out more about Aidan, his books, and his new podcast here.

Episode 147 of Inciting A Riot brings back friend of the show Cory Hutcheson of New World Witchery for a look back at the social and folkloric history of pandemics. (Hey...you guys asked for this episode. I think the topic is kind of bleak, too, but... 🤷🏼‍♂️) Our topics ranged from some that were actual medical pandemics to others that were more of a social plague to get a good feel for how society has reacted to widespread panic in the past.

 
We looked at the Black Plague, Salem, the Satanic Panic, HIV/AIDS, Ebola, and the H1N1 epidemics of yore. 
 
My thanks to Cory Hutcheson. Please go support him at New World Witchery!

Episode 146: Patti Wigington is back! We are celebrating her new book Herb Magic as well as getting a sneak peek at her upcoming book Badass Ancestors, out in September 2020.

Since Patti has spent most of her career as a Pagan advice columnist, we thought it would be a fun opportunity to throw a number of listener-submitted questions at her and test her witchy advice-giving capabilities on the spot!
 

A special thanks to all those whose questions we used - Peter, Emilia, Alexandra, Renee, Teresa, Joe, Nicole, Amelia, Polly, and Angela - and a big thanks to everyone else who submitted, but we ran out of time! Perhaps we can get Patti back on in the fall for another Q&A!

 
Find out more about Patti at her website.
