Summary: Laine shares a recent personal milestone and we get into the benefits (and potential headaches) caused by being “out” as a magical practitioner. We also talk about the role of social media and being a “public” witch, then do our monthly card readings and a listener email in response to our death lore episode.

Play: Episode 207 – Broom Closets Revisited
We last talked about this topic waaaaaay back in 2010 in Episode 2 – Broom Closets and an Interview with Sarah Lawless.
We were also both interviewed recently on Your Average Witch Podcast, which we mention in this episode.
We’ve had some questions about our cartomancy readings and meanings. Many of the playing card meanings are based on information found in Cory’s book 54 Devils: The Art and Folklore of Fortune-telling with Playing Cards (which will be getting an updated version soon). We also both like to use Rachel Pollack’s 78 Degrees of Wisdom for understanding tarot meanings, too.
Our listener email this month responds to some information in our recent Death Lore episode.
You can now buy Cory’s book, New World Witchery: A Trove of North American Folk Magic! (also available from Amazon)
