Update – New Patreon Tier Perks

Hi all!

This is just a super quick update to let you know that our Patreon tiers have been updated/changed this week. We’re trying to streamline the work process for Laine and me, while also adding a few extra perks for most levels!

The new tiers are:

Tier 1 (Omen Readers) – $1/mo. – You get the monthly newsletter, early access to any shows we release, and Discord access

Tier 2 (Fairy Doctors) – $5/mo. – You get the physical #54devils #cartomancy book (after 6 mos. of support) and a digital copy of the annual #witchyzine. You’ll also get priority during our NEW live reading cartomancy sessions, which we’ll do every six weeks or so (priority means you get to submit questions early). You’ll also get bonus episodes released on Patreon.

Tier 3 (Doodlebugs) – $10/mo. – Access to bi-monthly live chats. A digital review copy of the NWW Book by Cory. Plus a physical copy of annual zine. AND you’ll get an Annual Cartomancy Report done by either Cory or Laine (as an emailed PDF)

Tier 4 (Bone Shakers) – $20/mo. – You’ll get an Annual Swag Mailer (usually a book of some kind, a physical copy of the zine, and a few other little bonus gifts). You also get a signed copy of NWW Book (one time after 6 mos of support). We’ll also be featuring one Bone Shaker as a “Sponsor of the Ep” each month, and if you’ve got a business/podcast/project you’d like us to mention as part of that we’ll be glad to do so (some restrictions apply—no racist or homophobic stuff, for example). PLUS you’ll get access to a Live Zoom Cartomancy session with us twice a year where only patrons are invited and get to ask questions and receive readings!

So, yeah, that’s it! Hopefully it makes it easier for Laine and I to streamline some of the work while also adding more benefits for supporters.

HUGE thanks to everyone who has and does support us, too! We are incredibly lucky to get that support and we are so thankful to everyone who chips in to make this possible.

Literally couldn’t do it without you!

Thank you for your support!
Be well!
-C&L

Sneak Peek: Myth Taken Episode 0-0

Hello everyone!

We mentioned in our last show that we would be launching a new podcast soon, and today we’re getting the first episode out there! It’s called Myth Taken: A Buffy the Vampire Slayer Podcast, and you can probably guess what our main subject will be. This really is just an introduction to us, but we also talk about how we’ll be approaching the series, so if the Buffyverse interests you, check it out and see if you want to tag along with us as we delve into Buffy, bad puns, good stories, weird monsters, folklore, mythology, mixed metaphors, and wild tangents.

Also, don’t feel any obligation to subscribe to the new show if Buffy isn’t your thing. We totally get that, and we won’t be sharing all that much about it on the New World Witchery site. So if you’re here for the folk magic and the Buffy stuff is not your cup of blood-and-Wheetabix, no worries!

Okay, on to the show notes for this one!

 

Summary

This is our first episode, so we introduce ourselves and let you know a little bit about us and about where we’ll be coming from in terms of the show.

Firstly, if you haven’t ever heard of a little place called NIGHT VALE, then you should definitely pay that peculiar little town a visit (especially since our episode is done as a loving homage and parody of that town’s radio broadcasts).

 

Also, if you’ve not been here before, you may want to listen to the episodes about “The Visitor” and “Ice Cream” before hearing this one. We can’t promise it will help anything make sense (what does in this crazy, mixed-up, soul-eviscerating world?), but at least you get to hear more of Laine’s tourism director voice that way.
