Cory mentions a bunch of resources on learning about Hoodoo in this episode, including podcasts like JujuBae’s A Little Juju and the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour. There’s a great article called “Hoodoo in America” published by Zora Neale Hurston in the Journal of American Folklore back in the 1930s, too.
Some additional resources for doing research for no or low-cost:
- Scribd (you can get a low-cost monthly subscription and authors *do* get paid for the books you download)
- Sacred Texts
Cory also mentions checking out Morgan Daimler’s work and our interview with them a few months back regarding Irish folklore. For Welsh folklore, Mhara Starling is excellent, and Troy Books is a great source for a number of British Isles-inflected folk witchcraft.
Cory uses the Portable Fortitude deck this month, by Corina Dross.
