I’ve always been fascinated by podcasts and over the last decade or so I’ve done my own podcast shows on and off about topics that interest in relationship to magic. In April of 2015, I decided to start up the magical experiments podcast and I hosted it for a year on the Pagan Musings podcast channel. Eventually I decided to host it on my own channel, along with another podcast show, Eccentric Entrepreneurs. Currently those are the only shows on the channel, but I am open to hosting other shows (more details on that below).

Why Magical Experiments podcast is different from other occult and Pagan podcasts

I do things a bit differently than the majority of occult and Pagan podcasts. I’m not interested in interviewing the celebrity authors of the Pagan and Occult scene. They already get plenty of press and exposure and while you will sometimes see authors, artist, and musicians that are prominent in the community on the show, it’s really not about promoting them so much as it is about having some really good conversations about magic.

Magical Experiments is all about experimenting with magic and so the focus of the shows is really on learning what people are doing with magic. The majority of people on my shows haven’t written books and aren’t well-known in the Pagan convention scene, but they are doing amazing work and I love to talk about that work and learn from them, while also providing my audience a chance to learn from them.

If you are an author, artist, or musician, you do get a chance to promote your work, but the show is really about the topic of choice and all of us learning and having a conversation.
