From now on, all my Wyrd Way Radio posts will be on my regular blog, tagged accordingly. I've been lax of late in posting updates, largely because my partner and co=host Sannion has been so good about doing so! lol. At any rate, I shall shortly be remedying that and from here on out, all updates and archived shows will be posted and noted here.
We had a powerful show tonight. Wyrd Ways Radio held space for those in our communities who have been abused, raped, molested. We held space while people told their stories, shared their pain and their rage and we talked about ways to make sure that those who come forward are respected and protected. This is a community's work, regardless of any other differences, this is the work of a community.
I want to thank everyone who sent us their stories, who shared their stories live on the air, and those who listened holding their own experiences in their hearts.
Let us speak up and out against abuse until it ceases to be the de facto norm in our community, until it becomes as unthinkable to harm someone against their will, to violate the integrity of their person as it ought to always be.
We had an awesome show tonight with guest Rev. Tamara Siuda, the Nisut-Bityt of the Kemetic Orthodox Religion. We discussed everything from how she began her journey with the Kemetic Deities to some of the major issues facing polytheists today. Check out our archived show here. We start an hour in.
Those interested in learning more about Kemetic Orthodoxy may do so here and here. Rev. Siuda has a personal blog here and she is also working on a number of interesting projects including an Egyptian Prayer Book and an Egyptian Day book.
Tonight's show was a good one as we dissected the salient fault lines of community Paganism. Check out the archive where we chat with Julian Betkowski here. As always, we start about an hour in.
Our next show, the first Wednesday in February (Feb. 5), will feature Rhyd Wildermuth, who blogs here. Like Julian, Rhyd is one of the up and coming thinking voices of Paganism.
If you're wondering about the image of Athena here, we ended our show with a prayer to Her, the Homeric hymn celebrating Her birth. We are striving to end each show with a prayer celebrating and praising one of the Gods so if you would like to see a specific Deity honored.
Tonight's show was a ritual to the 200 Gods maligned by the so -called "God Graveyard" a group of WI atheists created at their university. We spent close to an hour and a half reading prayers and invocations submitted by members of the community. Sannion and I had both made offerings to the Gods invoked before going on the air.
I want to offer my heartfelt thanks to all those who kindly contributed pieces. We quite literally could not have done this ritual without your input and help. Sannion talks here about how we chose the pieces for the ritual (with a strict time limit, unfortunately we had to pick and choose and we tried our best to make sure everyone who submitted material was in some way included).
Those who missed the rite can listen to it here. We start one hour in.
Happy New Year, folks.
My partner (and co-host for Wyrd Ways Radio) Sannion has graciously compiled a 'year in review' of all the archived shows since Wyrd Ways Radio's inception. :)
For those of you who may have missed a show (and I know i've missed a few in my archiving duties!) you can pick and choose and listen or re-listen to them here.
We've some really interesting shows ahead of us, folks.
In the meantime, dont' miss this Wednesday's show. We've a very special ritual prepared wherein we'll be honoring the 200 Gods slandered by the so-called "God Graveyard".
Happy new year, folks.
Edit: here is the link to the show. We start about an hour in.
We'll be on the air in just over thirty minutes, folks. Check out tonight's guest:
Michael Routery is a poet, writer, experimental reconstructionist pagan, druid, fili, myth-based polytheist… Besides From The Prow Of Myth (Vindos Press) his writings can be found in a number of Bibliotheca Alexandrina anthologies, including Written In Wine, The Scribing Ibis and Out of Arcadia, and the Scarlet Imprint anthologies Datura and Mandragora (“Head of Orpheus”) and at finnchuillsmast.wordpress.com.
Sannion and I had a wonderful Wyrd Ways Radio show tonight. We spoke with Hellenic polytheist, Dionysian, and devotee of Cybele Indigo Celeste. We talked about gender roles and performance, transgression, embodiment as a sacred practice, the ins and outs of devotion to Cthonic Deities, celebrating the mysteries and so much more. The hour went by way too quickly.
Y'all can check out the show via archive here. We start about an hour and five in: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/witchschool/2013/10/17/pagan-warrior-radio-wyrd-ways-livepagan-music-project
Join us on October 30 when we'll be speaking with Tess Dawson about Canaanite polytheism, devotional work, and more.
