Summer solstice isn’t just the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, it’s also associated with fertility rituals and goddesses. Join Bea, Liz and our special guest Heather in our discussion of the history and current traditions of summer solstice, how it was coopted by the Catholic Church and the Nazis, and how we can reclaim it.
Are you ready for Feministmas? It is a wonderful time of year that celebrates some pretty kickass ladies from history and myth! From saints to goddesses and trees to mistletoe, grab your holiday chocolate and cookies and join Beatrice, Elizabeth, and Heather as they celebrate the origins of the holiday and a few of the many important women who helped make the season what it is today! In keeping with holiday spirit, this episode only features a bit of stomach slitting and burning on stakes, far less then usual. Happy Feministmas, Nasties!
