Unholier Than Thou - October 23, 2020 - 47:36

This week, we’re turning off the news and picking up our brooms. Witches are all around us, and always have been, so Phil decides to debunk some of the black magic around them. First, he speaks to Sabina Magliocco, an expert in witchcraft and folklore to dive into history. Next, he talks with Amanda Yeats-Garcia, a witch who gained prominence trying to put a binding spell on our president (Did it work? Find out next week!). And finally, he welcomes La Loba Loca, a queer educator and herbalist who speak on the power of ancestry, the horror of persecutions, and why you should take shrooms instead of ayahuasca.Show notes:Learn more about Amanda Yates Garcia, listen to her podcast, and buy her bookLearn more about La Loba LocaFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/unholierthanthou.

About The Show

We’re living in an unprecedented time, with many people looking for help and guidance in places they might not have looked to before. Journalist Phillip Picardi is one of them, with his journey coming as he re-evaluates his relationship with faith, spirituality and God. Picardi will take listeners on his quest to better understand his relationship with spirituality by learning how faith plays a role in other people’s lives, and with the help of the spiritual, religious, and agnostic, Picardi will guide listeners through the ethereal and worldly problems of the day, informed by his own on-and-off relationship with God. Through lenses both saintly and secular, Picardi will take a look at everything from sex to climate change, and how religion informs those discussions. New episodes every Friday.
