Podcast 1 – Introduction
-SHOWNOTES FOR EPISODE 1-
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.
