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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this interview. I recently have become a fan of the Crossroads after auditioning several “occult” podcasts to listen to on a cross country flight. Yours was the only one to survive the first round listening test, and I am now happy to add Cory’s cast to my subscription list.

I have been at my practice for around a half century, very solitary and largely closed for a number of personal reasons. Very many of the topics broached here – about the long conversation particularly- are lately resonating with me and have moved me to seek out other voices, and hopefully to establish relationships with those truly interested in that conversation. As the years seem to pass a bit faster now, I feel more compelled to add my own voice to it, before it goes forever silent. I thank you for providing good resources for that next stage of my journey, and expect you will hear from me a lot in the coming years.

To all of you, keep up the good work. The production is excellent, enjoyable, and deeply informative. I look forward to a time when I will be able to support you more directly. Thank you for your efforts and dedication, and blessed be.
