Episode 8: The Old and The Ugly – Witches in Fairy Tales and Myth

We at She Who Persisted strongly oppose luring people into huts and eating them. We do, however, support dancing naked in woods. So, grab your chocolate and listen to Heather, Liz, and Bea talk about witches from folklore and myth. No matter if it’s Hekate, Baba Yaga, or Ursula from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”, we’ve got you covered with all your witchy needs.

Because, as you all know: b/witches get stuff done.

Episode 7: Witches’ Herstory – the persecution, the burning, the killing.

Grab your Halloween chocolate and listen to Heather explain all the things about the fun parts of being a woman in the early modern era (like not being allowed to do or say anything ever because anything can be suspect and you’re gonna get killed). Featuring merry tales of persecution, killing, burning and castration anxiety. (Yay)

Also: fitting the theme of castration anxiety and misogyny, you’ll learn a binding spell against trump, which should be part of anyone’s magical survival kit, so listen to this.

You’re welcome.
