In this podcast I have an interview with Gemma and Joe from Deepsea Lights. We talk about how spirituality - or strugles with it - comes into their music making, how Awen and ritual practices help them to get inspired and what their processes are like for creating music. I found it really interesting to hear about their journeys and to listen to their very modern take on what subtley pagan music might be like. I hope you enjoy it!
Also in the intro is some information about DDUNG, the Druids Down Under National Gathering, happening on 2nd-5th March. Only a few weeks away now! You can book tickets and find out more at:

In this podcast I talk to my friend Kirsten Barnett Brown about the places where femininsm and Paganism intersect. We touch on the reclaiming tradition that we're both beginning to explore, Starhawk and her work, role models for young women, Red Tents, menstruation, gardening and activism. It's a fun chatty talk about the things we are passionate about. Some references:
'Women in Celtic Myth' by Moyra Caldecott
'Anastasia' by Vladimir Megré
'Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls' by Elena Favilli and Fransesca Favallo
'The Fifth Sacred Thing' and 'The Spiral Dance' by Starhawk

In this episode I chat with Amanda and Cassie who have been living in an Indigneous Community in a remote area of the Northern Territory of Australia. They talk about their experiences working with the local community, and what they have learned about the local culture and land. Amanda shares an interest in Druidry so we talk about that and how her practice has been changed and influenced working in a very different place to what she's been used to before. It's early days in their journey and I'm sure we'll hear from them again further along to hear about the development of the experience. It was great to get a snapshot of the experience.

In this episode I have a chat with my Instagram friend @SkepticalDruid. He's still "in the broom closet" as in he's prefering to remain anonymous about his Pagan path right now, so he's just going by SkepticalDruid in this podcast. He's new to Druidry and has started documenting his experience in Podcasts and Vlogs on You Tube. I think it's fascinating to hear about people's journeys in other parts of the world as we look into Druidry and nature spirituality, so that's what this one is all about. I hope you enjoy it!
