Hello and thank you once again for joining us down at the crossroads for some music, magick, and Paganism. Where witches gather for the sabbath, offerings are made, pacts are signed for musical fame and we cross paths with today’s most influential Pagans, occultists, and deep thinkers. I am your bewitching, bald headed, host Chris Orapello and tonight Tara and I meet with podcaster and now author Cory Hutcheson to discuss his long-awaited book New World Witchery: A Trove of North American Folk Magic. During the episode we talk about social media, conversations that are needed, the instant gratification culture in witchcraft, the history of the craft and why that is important, and just what new world witchery is all about. It was great to sit back down with Cory and pick his brain. We certainly hope you enjoy this discussion because it is always fun to chat witchcraft with Cory.
