Hello lovelies! Two years and two days after the first episode of Squeaky's Cauldron dropped, I'm coming atcha with Season 3! Also available as a video on YouTube at https://bit.ly/3lKgeP2 In this video I break down my biggest reason for abandoning the podcast to the dreaded pod fade, and why those reasons were both necessary and utterly ridiculous…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! Today’s episode takes us into the world of blood magic. This particular aspect of the Craft has been around since the very beginning, and it’s been maligned for likely just as long. In Part One I look a bit at the history of blood magic, including some curiously off-putting applications from well-regarded histor…
 
Gather round the cauldron! Today we’re diving into boundaries. Again! More specifically, taking a break from your family. The holidays are well upon us, and even with The Great Weirdness keeping us socially distanced from one another, that doesn’t mean there’s a break from familial expectations--or toxicity. In this episode I look at the cultural n…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! Today’s episode is all about Hekate, Keeper of the Keys, protector of the dispossessed, walker of liminal spaces. She is the mentor and confidante of Persephone, and the Queen of Witches. I explore many of Hekate’s correspondences--days, spaces, ways to honor her, plants, and more, as well as talking a bit about…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! Today I’m bringing you dark and juicy conversation with the indomitable, talented M. Chastain Flournoy @niansahc on IG. We explore the power of words and how they harm and heal, parenting our trauma, poetry (of course!), love, simmer pots, relating with the moon, and a ton of other delectable bites. | Chastain i…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! On this beautiful new moon in Libra, I look at Divine messages: how do we get them, how can we interpret them, and what do we do with them at the end of the day. We’re receiving messages all the time, but our brains tend to be so noisy and active that we don’t even notice. How do we quiet down, get still, and op…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies, your squeakiest witch is back! After a period of rest, reflection, processing and—let’s be honest—freaking out about the world in general, I’m returning with some fresh eyes, ears and vocal cords for Season Two. Look for new episodes every new and full moon! | You can find more on IG @squeakys_cauldron, at Squea…
 
Hello lovelies! Ever wondered what it’s like to be admitted to the hospital during Covid-19, but not because of the virus? This week’s episode provides one small window into the experience. | I recently went in for non-invasive outpatient surgery (it went really well!) and I wanted to share with y’all what that whole process was like. A little back…
 
Gather round the campfire, lovelies, for a new episode of Squeaky Reads! I’m diving into some sweet philosophical ponderings this week with Alan Watt’s “Nature, Man, and Woman”. This slender volume is packed with illuminating ideas about the nature of humanity. The selection I chose, from the chapter “The World as Ecstasy”, explores humankind’s pro…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! Today’s episode explores, very briefly, some connections between Christianity, Witchcraft, and death, and my thoughts on these subjects. I talk about Jesus as the end of the myth of redemptive violence, witchcraft as a source of resurrection, my experience as ‘the morbid one’, and more. | I hope you enjoy the ep…
 
Gather round the campfire, lovelies, for a new episode of Squeaky Reads! This week I read from a life changing piece of work, The Gifts of Imperfection by the incredible Brene Brown.

Gather round the campfire, loves, for a new episode of Squeaky Reads! This week I twist my tongue around Lewis Carrol’s “Jabberwocky (thanks for the nec @ninjatasic!), and debut an untitled piece of my own work. CW this poem contains references to Covid-19. | . This is the last episode for national poetry month. Next up: some nourishing nonfiction.…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! In this episode I explore calling in supportive spirits to assist us in our rituals and daily lives. I look at the types of spirits you might call upon (ancestors, spirit guides, and deities) as well as ways to honor them post-ritual. I also talk a bit about cultural appropriation, a breakthrough experience I ha…

Waswo’s India Poems | Anyone lived in a pretty how town by ee cummings |…
 
Hello lovelies! Another visit to the cozy campfire for some sweet poetry. I was going to read more Song of Myself, but I got inspired to go further afield of the mainstream. Whitman has received a lot of attention, and I wanted to share something you might not have heard of before. For your listening pleasure I present two poems from an anthology c…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! In today’s episode I explore casting a circle! This is a fundamental element of a magic and witchcraft practice, as it sets the stage for the work. There are so many ways to cast a circle. I talk about my three favorites, as well as why circles are important, and a bit about building your own practice based on i…
 
Squeaky takes a break from the cauldron to settle in front of the proverbial campfire! Today’s episode is the first of an undefined number of special bonus episodes. I’ve had an idea for this project, Squeaky Reads, bouncing around in my head for a while, and now seems like a great time to get it out in the world. Squeaky Reads will be exactly what…

Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! Today's mini episode is the last in a three part series covering my experience at PodFest 2020. In this episode I talk about the Payoff--what did I really get out of my trip to Florida? It goes deeper than information gathered at the panels, and means more than even the beautiful relationships that were planted.…
 
Gather round the cauldron lovelies! I've got a story to tell you. As a bit of a change of pace, I bringing in some witchy history. Witchstory.

Gather round the cauldron, lovelies; it's time for another episode! In this one I talk about the RAIN meditation/emotion processing technique. I was recently introduced to this powerful method of navigating intense and uncomfortable emotions. I've already used it a handful of times in the last few days, and found some softness where before I felt c…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! This week has been full of twists and turns in the health realm, and it brought me to the startling (but it shouldn't be) realization that healing isn't linear! It goes up and down and in and out and is a constant cycle of growth and discovery--and apparent setbacks. But when we learn to embrace the difference f…
 
Gather round the cauldron lovelies, for a special episode! Today I'll be talking about the subject I know best--me!

Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! I let things get a little bit loose in this episode, because I can! And I had relevant things to say. Particularly about not having a Plan (capital P intentional) for living a creative life, how art moves through us and ceases to belong to the artist once it's out of their hands, and a new feature using my Death…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! Today we're exploring wounds, how fun! Specifically, how the wounds that we carry allow for beauty, connection, and compassion to blossom through us into our lives. So if you're picking up what I'm putting down, join me around the fire! The conversation's warm. Art by Thumper Ormerod @thumperpnw Evil Plan by Kev…
 
Gather round the cauldron for episode 12! Today I'm talking about creation, and why it is such an integral part of being a human. We're part of nature, not apart from it, and creating new things is our most powerful link to that truth.

Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! I've got a short and sweet special episode for you.

Art by Thumper Ormerod @thumperpnw Evil Plan by Kevin MacLeod is licensed u…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! This week I talk about fear. That creeping, sometimes screaming voice that can stop a good plan dead in its tracks is also the thing that helps keep us alive. What do we do about it? I can’t say for sure, but I’ve got some good ideas! Art by Thumper Ormerod @thumperpnw Evil Plan by Kevin MacLeod is licensed unde…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! I've got a bit of a late one for you, but it's a good one. How often have you found yourself feeling lonely, or invisible, or unappreciated? I reckon all of us are familiar with this feeling. In this episode I talk about how finding your way back to your truth, and embodying that in the world, can lead to a grea…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! This episode is all about perfectionism, and learning to love the little bits. We all receive messages from so many angles telling us that we aren't good enough and worse--that our efforts to change aren't big enough, bold enough, fast enough. I say we praise those tiny, incremental shifts. The little bits. Art …
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! This week’s episode finishes up the exploration we started last week around storylines and programming. I look at differentiating between what you’re projecting onto someone else and what is truly problematic behavior, moving forward with clearer vision, and saying those two difficult words—I’m sorry. I hope you…
 
Gather round the cauldron, lovelies! In this episode I talk about stories. Namely, the ones our brains like to kick into high gear when we get emotionally triggered. You know the kind, the one that says we're worthless, or helpless, or unlovable. The lying kind. In part one I'll look at recognizing when a storyline has been triggered, and how to ge…
 
Gather round for another episode of Squeaky's Cauldron! This week I talk about help. Not giving, as so many of us are used to, but asking for and receiving help from others. This has been and continues to be a hugely challenging practice for me, and I explore some of the reasons behind that, as well as some ways we can gently begin to reach out, as…
 
Welcome Back to the Cauldron! In this episode I explore the topic of rest: why we aren't getting it, why it's so important, and where we can draw inspiration to incorporate more of this healing practice into our lives. Gather round! Art by Thumper Ormerod @thumperpnw Evil Plan by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution licenc…
 
Welcome back to Squeaky's Cauldron! Today I look at how I used poetry to navigate some of the darkest times in my life (and how you can, too), the surprising role of poetry in the Bible, and the overwhelming use of poetry in witchcraft.
