"It's Complicated." Whether in the Pagan Community or not people in general are bound to hit snags in their life. I'm joined in the episode by my friend Jonathan as we discuss his Agnostic/Universalist Unitarian/Whatevers view and begin to remember just how confusing and complicated religion can be. While this has more than a few dashes of humor it has a a very interesting and serious discussion at heart as to why some people when asked about their religion simply reply with "It's complicated." Also I give a few announcements about the show as well as talk a little more about "Summer Pump" by Cagey House and "Two Witches" by Gypsy on the album Enchantress. And of course if you want to buy or check out these artists just click the link. I hope everyone had a happy holidays and spent it with those you love. My next podcast won't be until next year--2006!! Have a happy New Year!!

Kicking The Winter Lazies Arts and Crafts as well as kicking the sluggishness sometimes brought on by winter are discussed in this wintery podcast. Also I talk about the Internet and Pagans, mainly focusing on the growing sense that we as a Community are finally reaching out to one another. This episode features music from Len with "If You Steal My Sunshine, as well as music from an unknown artist. I felt bad about not knowing the artist for the other song however I do know that it was from a fund raising cd for Amnesty International so I put a plug for them as well.

Also in reference to all my direct download listeners, I'm sorry that the file name is not as descript, the reason is that file management becomes horrendous. This is usually why I reccomend iTunes, it automatically updates and maintains any podcast that you subscribe to as well as giving you a full description of the theme of the episode itself. All said and done, I hope you enjoy~!

This episode is the first expose of my interfaith segment, I sit down and talk with one of my Indonesian Muslim friends about all sorts of issues and topics, ranging from interfaith cooperation to little appreciated facts about Islam. Also featured, as is represent by the banner, is a special plea to the Pagan Community on behalf of Darla Wynne. Please check and look for more information at Exploring the Cauldron, and also at the Darla Wynne Fund Site for further information. This episode's a little heavier than normal but I feel it's worth it.

Jam packed (don't worry you'll get the pun later) with recipes as well as discussions, this episodes truly speaks to those already sitting on the couch. This podcast is quite different from my last one and definitly is a lot calmer. I talk about pagan books, new recipes, as well as my Cafepress Store. The main topic however is Pagan Holidays and their prescence (or lack thereof) on Calendars. Also, this week's featured herb is Marjoram

Between deleting half an interview, deleting the ENTIRE podcast, and moving to a new place I seem to have contracted the craaaaazies! In this episode I go over the uses of Aloe as well as introducing a new herbalist term. Also I inserted a couple of recipes that I'm sure everyone out there is going to enjoy. This episode's Wandering Pagan segment talks about Japanese department stores. All Music by me, Enjoy~!
