Odd & Awed: A mind blowing counter-cultural conversation with anti-capitalist agents of the Divine Feminine & badass word witch authors, Amy Torak and Risa Dickens
Happy first New Moon of 2023!
I’m so excited to share this episode with you — it’s raw and real and full of fun!
In it I interview the authors of one of the best witchy books I’ve read — Missing Witches, who happen to be super smart counter-cultural anti-capitalist agents of the divine feminine, Amy Torak and Risa Dickens.
Because the share is so incredibly valuable I’ve decided to share it in 2 parts.
In today's airing — part 1 — you'll hear about Amy and Risa’s personal experiences as best friend witches. We talk about the magic that brought these witches together, what it was growing up in the 1980s as a “freak”, Divine, the Drag Queen, urban and rural witchcraft, the magic of straight lines and projective geometry and so much more!
This is a mind blowing philosophical conversation between 3 witches (I'm including myself in there) — each born in Ontario, Canada and raised (or not so much) by single moms (curious, right?).
These incredible women are the real deal my friends and I’m not exaggerating when I say that the episode is going to blow your mind!
More about Amy and Risa.
