This week we chat with Seo Helrune (aka Cat Heath) about her book, Essays From The Crossroads 2016 Collection. The topic of the book is witchcraft, which can be a controversial topic in many Heathen circles. Cat also gives us a preview of a book she’s been working on for over a decade.

Great beginnings, and good for beginners!
I am new to Heathenry, and have searched far and wide for educated opinions to aid me in my search. Every episode, the hosts have proven to be more thoughtful and more articulate than they were in their last episode. They are covering issues and delivering perspectives that I need to hear this early in my spiritual exploration. I'm getting used to the feeling of being wrong all the time ;)
I do have a couple of suggestions, firstly, the show could use a little more love on the audio side. The levels of the hosts are all over the place. This is really rough if you are listening in the car or in a noisy environment. Lauren comes through clear as a bell but the others are sometimes inaudible. I wind up adjusting my volume with every new speaker sometimes, which results in me missing commentary that is important for me to hear.
Also, I'd like to suggest scripting out an agenda for the show, if you do this already, maybe script in some main points in a more logical order. Often times I'm listening intently to some topic being discussed, desperate for a simple definition of a term that is foreign to me, but the definition is buried in a digression 5 minutes into the discussion. Putting the basics right at the top of the topic would be great for us noobs. Definition, example in action, relevance, open discussion. An order like that, repeated for every topic, in addition to the audio level normalization and some line noise reduction would turn this show up to 11 for me.
Thank you so much for doing what you do. I can't express how much this show means to me right now. I produce a few podcasts myself and I know how much work goes into something like this, so thank you, thank you, thank you.
