UNFRIENDLIES (Show #88)

In which we discuss the concepts expressed in Season 6, Episode 1 of Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman, “Are We All Bigots?” The premise is that people can be classified into 4 quadrants Friend/Foe and Competent/Incompetent, where “competent” means that the person can enact their will upon you, and why a powerful competent woman scares the crap out of everyone. There is some strong language in this episode (More than usual? Not sure.)

Show #74: The Ostara Show

In this episode, recorded in February in the midst of a cold and dreary winter, we talk about the Spring Equinox, Ostara,  how it’s been perceived throughout history, and what it means to us. We talk about “spring cleaning”, Passover, daylight savings time, and wind up in a discussion about mid-life and astrology with a focus on Saturn and the Saturn return. We talk about an Ostara ritual, sympathetic magic and what’s thawing out. And finally we talk about the mythology behind standing an egg on its end at the equinox, and its occurrence in a West Wing episode “Evidence of Things Not Seen” (a screencap from which appears in the header of this post).

Happy spring, everyone!
