What is means to be a "witch" is one of the most misunderstood identities in American culture. For obvious reasons, most people think of green-faced old ladies cackling over cauldrons or Winifred from "Hocus Pocus" or even Satan himself.
But witches in real life are not like the stereotypes. And they have nothing to do with Satan. They are everyday women – and men – who find solace from a peaceful, powerful, nature-based religion called Paganism or Wicca, a modern version of the ancient Pagan religion.
In this podcast, Julie interviews Molly, who was in a coven for 8 years, and Renee – aka Luna, the witchiest of the witches. Both Renee and Molly are High Priestess of Magick and determined to share information about their spirituality rather than hide it in the shadows as witches have been doing for centuries. In short, they have "come out of the broom closet" and ready to shed light on what is often perceived as a dark topic.
Julie, although skeptical about witches at first, asks intriguing, burning questions about what it's really like to be a witch and, as always, brings hilarity to the interview.
