Episode 119 – Of Cauldrons and Sigils with Laura Tempest Zakroff


We discuss all sorts of topics as we bring on author, dancer, artist, and all around righteous witch Laura Tempest Zakroff. We hear her takes on the many forms of cauldrons (you have more in your house than you know), sigils, and contemporary methods for traditional witchcraft. We also look at a strange and rather retro object in our Everyday Magic segment.

Big thanks to listener Renee for suggesting the insect ash tray we discuss in the Everyday Magic section (see the pic above that she sent in). When discussing it, Cory mentions the books The Little Book of Magical Creatures (edited by Elizabeth Pepper and Barbara Stacy) and The Witching Way of the Hollow Hill (by Robin Artisson).
