I know things have been quiet here, and I haven’t been writing a lot—at least, not publicly on my blog, as I am working on a few other projects at the moment (including a less-Abrahamic companion to my recent Preces Castri prayerbook). But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been wordy in other media, as well; I’ve recently been on two podcasts, and that might give you something to listen to instead of reading!
Last week, Douglas Batchelor (@DouglasWMiT on Twitter) over at the What Magic is This? podcast had me on his show, which was a great time. Taking a welcome departure from the usual topic of geomancy I’m usually invited to talk about, Douglas and I had a great chat about what “classical Hermetic magic” means, how that relates to Hermeticism as a whole, and how to pick up these ancient rituals and make them work for modern practices. Go and listen!
In addition to that great talk, the good Reverend Erik (@Arnemancy on Twitter) had me on his podcast (for the very first time, technically!) at Arnemancy! We recorded this back in October and had an amazing time doing so, but it just went live today (or earlier in the week, as is the custom for his Patreon supporters). Also taking a more Hermetic track, Erik brought me on to talk about my recent translation of Book III from the Corpus Hermeticum from earlier this year and what the process is like of translating such ancient works, along with a variety of other bits and bobs about the Hermetica and classical Hermeticism. Go and listen to this, too!
Both of these podcasts are great times to be on, and greater still to listen to; these guys know their stuff in all regards, and I’m honored to have been invited to talk on their shows by both of them. They both put out great content pretty frequently, both in podcast form and otherwise, so be sure to subscribe to both of them by whatever podcast media platform you best prefer, and support them on Patreon, too (What Magic is This? Patreon link here, Arnemancy Patreon link here) to make sure their powerhouses of content and discussion keep on powering on.
Just as a reminder, you can find a list of all the podcasts I’ve been on over on my About page, in case you’re interested in older stuff. Whether you’re looking for the new content or the old, I hope you enjoy these awesome discussions I have with so many people!
