We have a conversation with Neopagan author and tradition elder Ivo Dominguez, Jr. about his work in growing his tradition, living through the Neopagan boom of the 80s and 90s, and the New Alexandrian Library project.

Our guest has several books worth checking out, including Spirit Speak, Practical Astrology for Witches and Pagans, and Keys to Perception. You can find out more about his work at his website as well.
We also reference an ongoing conversation on the history (or pseudo-history) of contemporary Neopaganism in posts such as those by forest witch Sarah Anne Lawless, Patheos blogger Mat Auryn, and anthropologist Amy Hale. As we mention, this episode’s interview was recorded well before this conversation was going, but the chat with Ivo may relate to some of those discussions.
