Even though it sounds like a Japanese-import video game from the 90’s, the title of this blog post actually refers to the annual gathering of Pagan and magically-minded podcasters which is in its third year now. A number of podcasters have already been mentioning the event, but we only nailed down final details in the past few days. This year’s event is going to be in the San Francisco area, so if you’re out California way, come on by! We’ll be having a meet-and-greet as usual, which will also involve the opportunity to win some swag from some of the Moot sponsors (see below for a complete list and copious thanks to them). The date of the meet-and-greet is Saturday, October 6th, and we’re tentatively saying we’ll be there from 1pm to 4pm, though we may wind up sticking around a little longer.
Our meet-and-greet is going to be on Saturday, Oct. 6th at The Mystic Dream in Walnut Creek, CA, and they’ve been very accommodating to us so far, so we’re thrilled to be there!
The podcasters attending are:
- Devin Hunter from Modern Witch Podcast
- Fire Lyte from Inciting a Riot (and Inciting a Brew HaHa)
- Saturn Darkhope from Pennies in the Well
- Kathleen Borealis from Borealis Meditation
- Peter Paddon from The Crooked Path [UPDATE: No longer attending due to illness]
- Cory Hutcheson from New World Witchery
- Scarlet McPage from Lakefront Pagan Voice
- Mnemosyne Mars from Pagan by Nature
- Velma Nightshade from WitchesBrewHaHa (and Inciting a Brew HaHa)
We may also have some guests from the SFO area coming out to meet up, too, including magical authors and musicians, though we’re still hammering out those details.
We want to send special thanks to our sponsors this year, too! You’ll probably hear us gushing over them plenty in the coming weeks, but I’m going to be the first (I think):
- Moma Sara of Conjured Cardea
- Mrs. Oddly of Mrs. Oddly
- Carolina Gonzalez of House of Eleggua/The Magick Shop
- Willow Tree Press (Dorothy Morrison’s publishing house, also home to M.R. Sellars & Tish Owen)

- Bri Saussy of Milagro Roots
- Weiser Books
- Inanna Gabriel of Misanthrope Press
- Chas Bogan of Carnivalia

They’ve all been incredibly generous with us, and they’re almost all small shops/publishers/artists who can use some support, so please surf over to them and check out what they have.
If you’re going to be coming to the meet-and-greet, please let me know! I’d love to plan to meet you and maybe even get the chance to sit and chat a while!

Hope to see at least some of you there!
