A lot of what we use for this episode comes from almanacs, specifically the Almanac.com website (which also appears to have done a full moon names show recently on YouTube) and the following print almanacs:

Cory also relies heavily on John Clare’s The Shepherd’s Calendar, and recommends a book called Planets for Pagans, by Renna Shesso in addition to the materials listed here.

We reference the podcast Betwixt and Between, and specifically their episode on lunar names, Episode 9 – Gardening, Ungardening, & Wilding. We also have some of our own previous podcasts and posts that might be of interest:

At the very end, we mention that we were interviewed for the latest issue of Witch Way Magazine.
