Episode Info:

This episode is the first of three "interview-only" episodes to come this month. That means, just the interview with just a short intro by Rudolf, no news, no reviews. Rudolf is happy to present two people he has wanted to interview for quite some time - but it was now that the right moment had come, because Tara and Chris just released their new book "Besom, Stang and Sword" (get it here) about their Black Tree Witchcraft.But this talk is not only about the book, but about paganism and occultism in general in our time. Chris and Tara are also well-known podcasters, their "Down at the Crossroads" is a classic!       Tara-Love Maguire has been a practicing witch for over 30 years, on a path which has been crookedly influenced by Isobel Gowdie, Marie Laveau, and William S. Burroughs. Growing up as a weird kid in and around the New Jersey Pine Barrens, she found witchcraft within the tales and shadows that dwell there. She co-hosts the podcast, Down at the Crossroads, with her sweetheart, Christopher Orapello, and together, they founded Blacktree Coven- a traditional witchcraft coven which exists in the heart of southern New Jersey. Her first book- Besom, Stang, and Sword- co-written with Chris, is available now wherever books are sold from Red Wheel/Weiser Books. And this is her website   Christopher Orapello is an artist, witch, and animist with a background inwestern occultism, ceremonial magick, Freemasonry and has been on hisjourney for over 25 years. He co-hosts the podcast Down at the Crossroadswith his partner, Tara-Love Maguire, and is a signature artist with SacredSource (a leading producer and distributor of ancient deity images inNorth America). After a growing desire for a more locally-based form ofwitchcraft, he and Tara founded Blacktree coven in 2014, where they setout to forge a modern approach to Traditional Witchcraft for a new era ofpraxis. His first book- Besom, Stang, and Sword- co-written with Tara, isavailable now wherever books are sold from Red Wheel/Weiser Books. Find Chris' webpage here!
