This is the third of our Everyday Magical Object episodes, so you might enjoy checking out our first two:

Thanks to listeners Marquita, Emily, Sarah, Jillian, and Chris for your suggestions of magical objects to discuss!

We also mention the episode with Lisa Marie Basile and her Underworld Spell, as well as our post on coins (see the YouTube video we did on them as well). Cory also talks about cars, which were part of his article for the upcoming Oxford Handbook of American Folklore and Folklife Studies.

 

Here’s a pic of that “pulley wheel” we discuss:

 

We also mention J.K. Rowling’s story “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart” in Tales of Beedle the Bard. And Gravity Falls (seriously it’s worth watching if you like animation).

Episode 145 – Glamour and Beauty Magic

May 27, 2019
Summary:
We’re talking about the ways folk magic gets used for purposes of beauty-enhancement and attraction this time. We start with a little game of folklore fear factor (sort of), then discuss things like magical bathing and weaving a bit of magic into your wardrobe. (Apologies for some occasional sound/editing weirdness in this one)

Our folklore game is largely based on lore taken from Harry M. Hyatt’s Folklore from Adams County. We also reference a couple of works and ideas by Laura Tempest Zakroff, including her idea of the “bathtub cauldron” in The Witch’s Cauldron and her discussion of tattoos in Sigil Witchery
 
Cory mentions glam witch Chaewon Koo’s “Witches & Wine” YouTube channel, and we briefly bring up our “Ritual of Gestures” episode.
In off-topic rambles, we also mention the recent MET gala, the excellent book Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins, and a lady who just wants you to bathe in her milk (which, it turns out, are part of a performance art piece).

We start off with an apology about a misstep that may have hurt some of our listeners in the disability community. The episode we address is 130 – Dirt Sorcery and Six Ways with Aidan Wachter. We are truly sorry for not being better about watching our own words and getting better clarity from our guest, which we know is our job. We will try to improve upon that, and thank you to the listener who pointed out our fumble.

If you want some background and perspective on the Sephora witch kit controversy, Fire Lyte of Inciting a Riot has a great post going over many of the key points.

Thanks also to AthenaBeth, whose YouTube channel you should check out! She sent in our (terrifying) rabbit lore in relation to our previous posts on things like lucky rabbit’s feet.

There was also a mention of an episode in which we shared lore on fairies wearing red caps, which is Episode 8 – Magical Media Mania, and there was a follow-up blog post about it as well.
