Tom Hatsis, historian of witchcraft, magic, Western religions, contemporary psychedelia and medieval pharmacopia discusses with us tonight how the "the Entheogenic Sacred Feminine was demonized as the infamous "witches' ointment' - so hold on to your broom!
We'll talk about the witch stereotype and how the ointment fit into that stereotype, how he came upon his research including the voice of his skeptics, and where the recipes he produced came from. Learn about Matteuccia de Francesco and why she's important to understanding the state of witchcraft at the time. I think we're all in for an interesting conversation.
Crossing the threshold into the second half of the show, STARHAWK is here with us to discuss her newest book, City of Refuge, sequel to Fifth Sacred Thing!
