Quick Update – Who’s Ready for a Giveaway?

November 15, 2013

Hi everyone!

We came away from PPSM4 in New Orleans this year with a few extra items that I thought might be fun to share with our readers! We’re going to start with some books. I’ve got a magical three-pack of books to give away, which includes:

      

The 2014 Witches’ CompanionLlewellyn Publications

Banshees, Werewolves, Vampires, & Other Creatures of the Night, by Varla VenturaRed Wheel/Weiser Books

Fifty-four Devils, by Cory Thomas HutchesonNew World Witchery

There will likely be an extra goody or two in the book box, too, but I’ll keep that stuff a surprise.

So what do you have to do to get entered? This time around, I’ll make it super-simple. All you have to do is either “like” our Facebook page or leave us an iTunes review. Email me at compassandkey@gmail.com to let me know you’ve done it (and tell me what day you did it so I can verify your entry), and I’ll put your name in the sorting hat! If you do both, you get two entries.

I’m going to put the contest deadline at midnight, Central Standard Time, on Friday, November 22nd, 2013. Please make sure you’re entered by then! If you win, I’ll reply to your email to ask for your mailing address.

Just to make it fun, I’ll even give away two runner-up prizes, copies of The 2014 Witches’ Companion from Llewellyn Publications.

We’ll have a slightly bigger and more exciting contest to announce in our upcoming podcast episode, too, but for now I thought this would kick things off for the holiday season nicely.

Good luck! And thanks for reading!

Quick Update – Reminder: Pagan Podkin Super Moot 3!

October 3, 2012

It’s almost here! The third annual Pagan Podkin Super Moot is happening in a matter of days! Here’s a quick reminder about what it is, who’ll be there, and what’s happening:

The podcasters attending are:

Due to his recent illness, Peter Paddon of The Crooked Path will not be attending, but will be with us in spirit. Mojo and Sparrow of The Wigglian Way also had to bow out, but are sending their love our way.

The actual meet-and-greet day is Saturday, October 6th, at The Mystic Dream in Walnut Creek, CA. We’ll have two meet-and-greet sessions, one around noon and another around 3pm. In between, we’ll have mini-classes done by some of the podkin, including:

1. “Magical Interwebs: Learning to Research your Path Beyond the 101 Books,” presented by Fire Lyte of Inciting a Riot. (around 12:30pm – 1:00pm)

2. “The Clear Moon Brings Rain: Omens, Signs, & Superstitions in Everyday Life,” presented by Cory of New World Witchery, (around  1:00-1:30pm)

3. “Dancing the Body Divine,” presented by Saturn Darkhope of Pennies in the Well: (from about 2:00-3:00pm)

We’re also hoping to do a panel discussion with all the podcasters around 3:30pm, and (fingers crossed) we may try to record some of that, though we do have some limitations on recording equipment in this particular situation (not everyone will have mic).  But at the very least, this should be a lot of fun!

We have some wonderful sponsors for the swag bags this year. We’re planning to give away at least one of those bags to a lucky listener who attends our meet-and-greet, which will include items from:

So if you’re anywhere in the San Francisco Bay area on Saturday, please come by and say hello! I’d love to meet you, and who knows, you may even win some witchy goodies! Happy October to you!

Thanks for reading, listening, and being generally great!

-Cory
