Episode 142 – Techno Sorcery and Digital Magic

March 14, 2019
Summary:
We look at folk magic from a “new” perspective this time (which isn’t really very new at all). We discuss embedded spells in webpage code, shuffle-o-mancy and radio divination, and how to make a meme into a spell as we look at where magic and technology overlap (with special guest, Laine’s husband!).

We talk a little bit about a couple of episodes we did last year, including our Sound Sigils one and one on Sensory Witchcraft.
We also discuss the practice of steganography, which you can learn more about in this article from WIRED.
Cory mentions the book American Gods by Neil Gaiman (also a television show now). We also discuss the “Loss” meme and the “Mocking Spongebob” meme quite a bit. (And this classic as well).
You may also want to learn more about the “coding duck” we discuss.
Finally, here are some of the apps we recommend (either personally or based on trusted friends/listeners and their recommendations):

During the Supermoot, NWW favorite Peter Paddon will be teaching a class on ritual trance and possession. Sign up here.

I’ll also be at the West KY Hoodoo Rootworker Heritage Festival teaching a course on “Biblical Magic & Sorcery.”
