SHOWNOTES

Summary

What does “witch” mean to you? Is it a creature of fantasy flying through the midnight skies on a broomstick? Is it a powerful woman stirring a little pot of potions (and maybe a bigger pot of political change)? Is a “witch” someone (or something) magical, something scary, something wonderful, or something else entirely? Or maybe even a combination of any or all of these? This time we sit down to explore witches in folklore and real life with anthropologist and folklorist Sabina Magliocco, then turn to the way witches have appeared on screens both big and small with author Heather Greene in this episode.
