Hello witches, seekers, and friends! I'm crawling up out of my summer hiatus with a new episode about the overlap between witches and pagans, and midwives, doulas, and parents who choose to use their services. As I've mentioned before on the show, I took a doula certification course years ago and for a short time … Continue reading Hey Witches, Midwives, and Doulas!
Those April showers totally came through with the promise of May flowers and my neighbourhood is exploding. In the Witch n' Bitch this month we're talking flower magick, and I started to think about the flowers people give their moms on Mother's Day, and what kind of magickal energy they bring. Of course, giving flowers … Continue reading 9 Magical Flowers to Show Your Mom You Love Her! (and 3 for if you lowkey hate her)

Thanks for tuning in to The Fat Feminist Witch Podcast! Today I'm talking about how out-dated and racially insensitive some of the common language of witchcraft and paganism can be - especially when witches who are white talk about the magickal traditions of witches who are black.

I recently asked y'all to share with me what comes to mind when you hear the term "Plantation Magic", in reference to "southern heritage magic". Before you ask, no this is not a very common term, but it is one I've recently come across and it made me think about the way we, often as … Continue reading #WITCHNBITCH Responses: Plantation Magic
