Podcast 1 – Introduction



For Episode 1 of New World Witchery, Cory and Laine try to come up with a quick and simple definition for New World Witchery, including a brief overview of the traditions we consider to be under the umbrella of American Witchcraft.

We talk a bit about ourselves, our path to witchcraft, and how it has brought us to where we are today. And later on, Cory will give you a little bit of history on witchcraft in America.

An extensive and very interesting list of witchcraft trials in America can be found at: http://www.personal.utulsa.edu/~Marc-Carlson/witchtrial/na.html.  This site also does the reader a service by providing direction to original source material and making it clear when details are too vague to make definitive statements about the trial.

Two websites which reveal a great deal about Hispanic magical practices are the Curious Curandera and Brujo Negro.   While they may seem diametrically opposed in some ways, they actually have quite a lot in common, and a good overview of Hispanic magical traditions can be worked out between the two.

Lilith’s Lantern, a site dedicated to the Feri  & Vicia branches of Anderson’s witchcraft, is a wonderful resource for learning more about this tradition.

  1. Wow! Great new podcast! I’m so keen to hear the rest of these episodes. What a fresh new perspective on the pagan podcast scene. I wish you both the best!

  2. 🙂 just had to say, I know the book ‘encyclopedia of white magic’ and still really enjoy flipping through it when looking for inspiration for doing a sabbat. I was working in a bookstore when it came out and couldn’t resist picking it up. It was probably my 3rd or 4th craft book and of those early ones, the only one I still enjoy picking up. Great pictures, too.

    1. It definitely is a gorgeous book. And I like Slade’s tone in it–she’s not exactly like any other author I’ve read in the Pagan/Wiccan/Witch genre. I often open up that text when I want a little light inspiration, too!

      All the best,
