We start off with an apology about a misstep that may have hurt some of our listeners in the disability community. The episode we address is 130 – Dirt Sorcery and Six Ways with Aidan Wachter. We are truly sorry for not being better about watching our own words and getting better clarity from our guest, which we know is our job. We will try to improve upon that, and thank you to the listener who pointed out our fumble.
If you want some background and perspective on the Sephora witch kit controversy, Fire Lyte of Inciting a Riot has a great post going over many of the key points.
Thanks also to AthenaBeth, whose YouTube channel you should check out! She sent in our (terrifying) rabbit lore in relation to our previous posts on things like lucky rabbit’s feet.
There was also a mention of an episode in which we shared lore on fairies wearing red caps, which is Episode 8 – Magical Media Mania, and there was a follow-up blog post about it as well.
If you have feedback you’d like to share, email us or leave a comment. We’d love to hear from you!
