In the first segment Jordy sits down to discuss the Jane Wunderly mystery series. This cozy yet suspenseful series is perfect for anyone looking for a spooky season recommendation that won’t leave you with nightmares. If you’re an Agatha Christie fan, this is for you.
Then, Mariquita talks with Lisa Kröger and Melanie R. Anderson about their new book, Toil & Trouble: A Women’s History of the Occult, which explores the roles women and non-binary people have historically played in the occult. They touch on how to respectfully uplift cultural practices without appropriating them, why it is necessary to expand beyond womb-centric language, and what might have been happening in the White House during the Satanic Panic of the 1980s.
