Summary: We break out the smells and bells to chat with two delightful folk Catholic magicians: Fonzie and Ryan from The Red Text podcast! We talk about pathways into folk Christian-type magic, engaging in “good” heresy, Filipino spirits mingling with Mary, seeing folk magic as a Queer practice, and much more!
