This time we have a crossover episode with the magical mamas from Betwixt and Between! In our portion of the conversation, we talk animism, hedgewitchery, and raising kids with witchy traditions (even when they’re not your own).
Please check out our Patreon page! You can help support the show for as little as a dollar a month, and get some awesome rewards at the same time. Even if you can’t give, spread the word and let others know, and maybe we can make New World Witchery even better than it is now.
Producers for this show: Heather, WisdomQueen, Regina, Jen Rue of Rue & Hyssop, Little Wren, Khristopher, Tanner, Achija of Spellbound Bookbinding, Johnathan at the ModernSouthernPolytheist, Catherine, Carole, Debra, Montine, Cynara at The Auburn Skye, Moma Sarah at ConjuredCardea, Jody, Josette, Amy, Victoria, Sherry, & AthenaBeth. (if we missed you this episode, we’ll make sure you’re in the next one!). Big thanks to everyone supporting us!

You can hear some of our previous episodes on raising a magical family here:
- Episode 9 – Relationships and Witchcraft
- Episode 54- Raising a Magical Family
- Episode 112 – A Witch in the Family
You should definitely check out the Betwixt and Between podcast, which is pretty phenomenal! You may also want to check out our show, Episode 86 – Local Witchcraft with Chris Orapello, which also covered some of the areas of bioregionalism and local animism we briefly discussed here. Sarah Lawless has also done a wonderful post on bioregional animism called “The Song of the Land.”
Cory mentions using the works of Neil Gaiman and Roald Dahl as a way to introduce children to a magical worldview, and Betwixt and Between mention Laine’s favorite, The Secret Garden. Cory also briefly mentions Laura Tempest Zakroff’s forthcoming book Weave the Liminal.
