64. Dr. Carolyn Elliott // The Conspiracy Against Magic & the Occult Millennial Generation

Our guest this time around is Dr. Carolyn Elliott. Carolyn has a PhD in Critical and Cultural Studies from the University of Pittsburgh. Her dissertation ended up as the basis for the cult-favorite book on creativity called Awaken Your Genius. Carolyn is also the founder of WITCH magazine, which gives voice and prominence to the subtle witching in the world that’s not confined to tradition and convention. She’s also the teacher of INFLUENCE, a course on mastering practical magic. All in all, Carolyn’s professional ventures aim to help people achieve dramatic positive change in their lives through shadow integration practices and applied occult philosophy. Carolyn is in the house because I came across an article she wrote for Witch magazine called “5 Keys to Understanding the Conspiracy Against Magic”. That led me to a free ebook she co-wrote called “Pluto in Scorpio”, which is an occult look at the millennial generation. Both these pieces of writing are the basis for the conversation you’re about to hear. There’s magic and psychology, the fear of the feminine and even the alchemy of Oprah. And if you don’t mind a few Skype gremlins and sexual innuendos, you’ll like this one quite a bit.

88. Greg Kaminsky // Pico della Mirandola's Christian Cabala & Syncretic Angelology

Please do take a moment to check out our Patreon campaign. We call it Coda. Four levels of support. Bonus content. Free shit. Click here to check it out: https://www.patreon.com/occulture I am so pleased and so honored to welcome this particular guest into the house. His name is Greg Kaminsky, and he is the host of a podcast called Occult of Personality. I was trying to think of a good analogy for Greg and I coming together, and the best one I could think of is the first time you heard Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg together. Greg is the podfather - Doggfather? - of occult podcasts. We’ll talk a bit about how he became that, and then we’re gonna dig into one of my favorite topics and talk about one of my favorite dudes to ever do this damn thing: Giovanni Pico della Mirandola. Such a fascinating figure with some downright heretical ideas. And Greg is gonna creep to the mic like a phantom and parse out this story for us over the course of the next hour. So sit back, relax, and strap on your seatbelt, because you’ve never been on a ride like this before, with a producer who can rap and control the maestro. It’s time to roll another dope episode up and take a toke but don’t choke, because if ya do, you’ll have no clue what me and my homie Greg Kaminsky came to do.

100. Dr. Amy Hale // Ithell Colquhoun, Alchemy & Golden Dawn Color Theory

You couldn't ask for a more dynamic personality to be in the house than Dr. Amy Hale, whose work on British Surrealist and esotericist Ithell Colquhoun is the foundation for our conversation here. Amy is a scholar of all things occult and esoteric, and has a PhD in Folklore and Mythology from UCLA. Her research and writing ranges from contemporary Cornwall to modern Pagan and occult subcultures in the United States and the United Kingdom. She’s written about topics as diverse as modern Druidry, Cornish ethnonationalism, Pagan religious tourism, color theory, the occult, and extremist politics in modern Paganism. We’ll touch on some of those ideas and concepts throughout our chat here. One note: Amy’s audio did have some inconsistencies in terms of volume, but I enhanced what I could, so hopefully it’s not too bad.

Click here to check it out: https://www.patreon.com/occulture The one and only Thomas Sheridan is in the house. Thomas is the author of Sorcery: The Invocation of Strangeness, self-published recently on Lulu.com, and the book focuses on magic as a real force in the world employed by powerful people, as most of us overstand by now, but it’s an honest and practical approach to defending yourself against that force. This is one of the best books on the subject I’ve read, and one of the most entertaining, because not only it is narrated by one of the most outspoken sorcerers you’ll find anywhere, it also contains a ton of awesome stories and anecdotes. And as Thomas describes himself in his Facebook profile, he has no interest in waking you up, he’s here to improve the quality of your dreaming. And hopefully after an hour (or two if you’re a patron), your dreams will be much improved.
