With the many things going on in parts of the country that make certain school districts less friendly to Pagan children, children with learning disabilities and/or giftedness, and more, it is becoming much more common and accepted for parents to take on the task of schooling their children at home. In addition, homeschooling in the age of the internet and social media has become much more feasible and complex. Also, Pagan homeschooling is a viable alternative to the religious private schools available to Christians.
Join RevKess and Kalisara in talking about Pagan homeschooling. We will be addressing some of the rules and regulations, providing some links to resources. We will talk about homeschooling vs. unschooling and other parent-directed learning techniques. Joining us is the group moderator for Little Pagan Acorns.
Little Pagan Acorns is a webpage (http://www.littlepaganacorns.com/) and a group on facebook that describes itself as: "a community for Pagan homeschoolers, as well as anyone raising Pagan children. Focusing in printables, puzzles, worksheets and other resources." "Even if you’re not a Pagan homeschooling parent, you can use lots of these pages to keep your kids amused and to teach them a little bit about various Pagan paths and pantheons."
RevKess and KaliSara hop from source to source to deliver to you some Pagan related news. From Pagan media sources like the Wild Hunt and Pagan Square to mainstream sources like CNN and the BBC, there are a myriad of sources for news that relates to the global Pagan community. The hosts will share some of the sources with you as well as talk about some of the stories out there that have catch their attention in the last week or so.
Join RevKess & KaliSara to talk with Janet Callahan about her newest book, Parenting Pagan Tots, as well as her website Our Little Acorn, which discusses special needs parenting in Pagan families.
From her website: "Author and priestess Janet Callahan has had articles published in several anthologies and on various websites, as well as on her own blogs. She has had poetry published on the now defunct paganliving.com. She’s also published an eBook on being a Pagan Parent in the NICU, and has written a mini-course on planning for Pagan holidays.
Ms. Callahan has been Pagan for more than 15 years. She trained under a Dianic coven in the Detroit area and was initiated as a Mother priestess at Imbolc 2007. She is also currently a 2nd degree student with a more traditional Wiccan coven that focuses on family-based practice. She considers herself to be a Modern American Polytheist – a mixture of syncretistic polytheism, techno-Paganism, pop-culture magick, Wicca, and Unverified Personal Gnosis (UPG).
Additionally, Ms. Callahan is the former Program Director of SpiralScouts International, an alternative Pagan-based scouting organization for children ages 3-18, and a former board member of several other Detroit area Pagan organizations."
With PantheaCon starting in less than 24 hours from broadcast, RevKess and KaliSara wanted to take the opportunity to talk about some of the upcoming festival events. Focusing primarily on the United States, there are many festivals and Pagan events taking place in 2015. ConVocation, Between the Worlds, Heartland, PSG (just to name a few). During the show your hosts will give highlights of some of these upcoming events in early 2015.
Be sure to tune in to Pagan-Musings on the 15th for a live segment feature Sharon Knight. She will be dialing in from P-Con to share about her new music and video project.
If you are hosting or know of an event in your area that you would like us to talk about, please let us know through our Facebook or email us at email@example.com. (Note: The hosts are purposefully leaving PPD events out of this broadcast, those will be addressed in more detail as that season get closer.)
As event season gets ready to kick off for the Pagan community there are any number of minor controversies that might crop up. In the passed there have been issues regarding gender in sacred space, certain notable presenters and their pasts, and other issues - both minor and major. This year seems to be no exception to that. With Covenant of the Goddess facing member resignations and turmoil over their public statement regarding racial issues and a first time out festival in direct conflict with a well established festival - in both timing and geographic location - there seems to be now shortage of controversies to address this year.
RevKess and KaliSara will talk about some of those current issues and how they may play out in the near future. From Peter Dybing's strong stand on racial inclusivity in practice and language in regards to CoG to the Gathering of Pagan Souls festival being in direct conflict with Heartland Spirit Festival at the end of May. Along the way they may also address some of the past issues that have come in the Pagan world and how they were addressed and handled by those who could make a difference. They will also talk about other upcoming events in the Pagan world, including ConVocation and PantheaCon.

RevKess shares some of his favorites from Pagan and Pagan-y artist who have released CDs in the first half of 2015. Featuring Damh the Bard, SJ Tucker, Mama Gin and more. With just over 60 minutes of music, you are sure to have an enjoyable listening experience.
This episode includes new music from Damh the Bard and his Sabbat album, SJ Tucker and her Stolen Season, Mama Gina's Solitaire, Chronilus with Threshold, and Celia with Letting Go. There's also to surprise pieces - not new for 2015, but recent from two groups you are sure to recognize.
KaliSara and RevKess tend to focus on North America and Western Europe during PWN. Understandable, as they live in the Midwest of the United States. This week they will broaden their discussion of current events and news to encompass much of the global Pagan community. News from Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, South America and of course from North America will be touched upon.
Due to a scheduling conflict, this week's edition is on Wednesday instead of Thursday. The hosts will try to share any other scheduling issues during broadcast, but will continue to post updates in show descriptions for those who prefer to listen live.
Mike Nichols, the author of The Witches' Sabbats, is one of the first American Pagan broadcasters. He was broadcasting on regular radio in the 1970's. RevKess and KaliSara are very happy to host Mr Nichols in this episode to discuss a history of Pagan broadcasting as well as some of the history of Paganism in the United States and elsewhere around the modern world. Mr Nichols has been presenting workshops and discussions on a history of witchcraft and occultism in the United States for a number of years now.
We sometimes take our topic inspirations from odd places. Shauna Aura Knight's blog isn't al that odd, but the reblogged article she shared early in January might at least seem that way. Are You a Highly Sensitive Person? She shares some very personal aspects of her own hypersensitivity in the following post and also shares how the information may be valuable to people and to leaders. KaliSara and RevKess explore that topic in this edition. Shauna may join them for part or all of the discussion.
UPDATE: We apologizxe for the abrupt ending to the show, both Shauna and KaliSara lost ther connection at the same time. The conversation will continue on February 2nd.
SHOW NOTES available here.
All across the United States and aroun the world there are many Pagan community events every year. Some or big, some are small.
