Local Pagans offer Podcasts

Several area Pagans are producing podcasts. These are sometimes live with call in options, and sometimes prerecorded. The subject matter is wide, and may be of interest to Pagan listeners. Your best bet is to look these up and bookmark upcoming shows that may be of interest to you!  There are doubtless others out there, but I was able to briefly talk with the host of most of these.

Joseph, “The show is pretty open ended. We explore ‘Mystery’ which is a wide field. It is a mix of lectures and will begin some interview shows. People can call, or  ‘chat’  in, during the broadcast.

We have covered the many shops in the area, covered paranormal phenomena, and Pagan rights. In a recent episode we discussed Paganism in the media and Hollywood. We also cover rituals and rites, and did a special of Pagan caroling. We broadcasted live a Ombolc ritual which is also available online.”

Bridging the Gap  – with WildflowerFirst Thursdays each month at 8pm Central 

is an ‘as scheduled ‘ podcast to explore bridging the gap between metaphysics, success, and self-discovery. The show is sometimes live, sometimes recorded. Hosted by Wildflower the show both explores metaphysics and also offers tips for things to take away and apply in your personal life. Wildflower, “Listeners will gain new insights and tools to implement these. I recently interviewed Giorgio A. Tsoukalos of the show Ancient Aliens from the History channel, a very interesting discussion.”

On the Edge…of Everything” with SchaOn & CathySecond Sunday of each month 11am-1pm

Join SchaOn and Cathy – as well as a Special Guest – as they talk about the latest news and updates in Holistic Health care .  SchaOn, “ It is a live show with call ins. We talk with a local guest or have an interview about what is happening in our society that affects people’s health. We make the connection between those things that may negatively impact our health and so also impact our spirituality, practice, and capabilities. Good health also involves caring for the Earth and our bodies, and so we ask the questions and seek answers for ourselves about what is best for both.”

Community Notes – September 13-19


You can serve your community October 10 as the Upper Midwest Pagan Alliance gathers to clean up an adopted stretch of I-35E. It is so great that drivers along the interstate see that local Pagans are gathering to clean up a bit of nature.

TC Pagan Pride has lots of new information up at their website. You can now check out their programming schedule, vendors list, and more. It should be a great Pagan Pride event at Lake Harriet Spiritual Community September 25 & 26.

For those of you looking for instruction, and an opportunity for a first degree initiation, the Wiccan Church of Minnesota is about to start a series of classes. Contact for more information.

The local Pagan Newswire Collective bureau has been doing a wonderful job of covering events for the local community. If you have not yet subscribed, it’s definitely worth it.
