Misha Magdalene: Outside the Charmed Circle
Show Notes

Since I've started podcasting again, I've had some really great guests on my show. However, I think this is my favorite episode out of my initial six. This was just one of the best conversations I've ever had in the context of a podcast. Misha Magdalene is the author of "Outside the Charmed Circle: Exploring Gender & Sexuality in Magical Practice," and our chat concentrated on just that and a lot more.  

When we recorded this show the creator of Harry Potter had just confirmed our worst fears about her being a transphobe, which took up a lot of airtime. What do you do when you love art but not the artist? How can we create more inclusive spaces in the Witch and Pagan communities? How have practices like Wicca evolved over the last thirty years? Misha tackled these questions and more while I mostly listened, Misha is a lot smarter than I am.  

Anyways, I love Misha, they are my conscience when I'm wrestling with an issue.
