We are on a roll.
We are pretty excited to bring you this episode of The Wigglian Way. First, we have the last interview from our April interview-a-thon with Jason Mankey. This fella knows a lot about a lot of Witchy stuff and this time he talks to us about Drawing down the Moon.
Our Feature album is Wild Earth Child by the gorgeous and talented Jenna Green. From that recording we hear Phoenix, Muse, and Chapel of the Wood. In addition to being beautiful Jenna is also kind and has the hugest heart. She sent The Wigglian Way, yes THREE, copies of Wild Earth Child to give away to You, our listeners. They are signed folks. Sweet huh? Listen for details.
On a sad note, we say good-bye to Dave from the PCP. Dave gave a lot to the community and we will miss him for that.
We are continuing the contest for swag from Quadrivium Supplies until the next show, so get your entries in!
Thanks for downloading and listening to The Wigglian Way.

Long time in coming!
Well, maybe not the episode but the interview we have for you this episide is long overdue. Catherine of Quadrivium Supplies spent some quality time with me (Sparrow) and we had a great chat. Enjoy and learn.
Mojo has been rocking out lately. In fact, he seems to be in a "hardcore" place and so is sharing more hardcore Pagan music with you this week. Our feature album is, By the Light of the Northern Star by Tyr (release 007). From that album we first hear Hold the Heathen Hammer High and title track By the Light of the Northern Star. We finish up with Tyr's Northern Gate. We also have for your listening pleasure Icarus Witch with Funeral Wine from Draw Down the Moon and The Green Man from MaterDea's Satyricon.
There is also special give away...you'll have to listen to find out details.
It's late it's late, it's a quarter past...it's freaking midnight! The witching hour. We have to be awake and on the road in just a few hours.
Thanks for walking The Wigglian Way!

And yet, there are no dalmations.
This is a "taking care of business" episode where we share about the Sun Wheel Pagan Arts Festival with an interview with Ed (co-owner of Where Faeries Live in Edmonton, Alberta). Mojo also interviews Thom from Raven's Call.
The Feature album is no surprise as we were lucky and honoured to host Sharon Knight and Winter this last weekend for a really great concert. The album is their 2011 release, Neofolk Romantique. From that recording we hear Saucy Sailor, Song of the Wandering Aengus, and Bells of Alluria. We also hear Raven's Call with The Charge and Mojo's Solstice Day.
We are going to have a quick turnaround as next week we are recording Episode 102. Keep your eyes and ears open.
Thank for walking The Wigglian Way!

Wow! What a journey. January 2007- now and into the future. One of us knew this would happen. One of us was scared that Episode 10 would happen but here we are. Thanks for journeying with us. It's been our pleasure.
Eco-Priestess joins us today with a selection of organic beverages. Yes, a selection and ONE of us gets tipsy. Can you guess who? One of us gets drunk. Then there was celebratory champagne. Oh yeah, one of us was responsible. Which one?
All the music is Chalice & Blade (except for the first song, which is by SONA) tunes performed live by Wendy (Eco-Priestess) and Mojo...and a little bit...me.
YOU made this episode what it is and it made us tear up. More than once. We wish we could have played all the submissions but you all were so kind and it would have taken hours. We also had a bit of a hard time hearing such nice things about ourselves so we had to cut it short.
Thank you so much Wigglian Nation from the bottom of our hearts for sticking with us and walking The Wigglian Way. It wouldn't be what it is without you.
We are so frakking blessed. Thanks for everything.
Hail to YOU!

I will tell you this...I never thought that we'd make it to Episode 99, and I am sure Mojo didn't either. But, here we are and we are HERE with a HUGE bang. This is a jam-packed busy episode full of fun information, laughter, and music. We hope that you enjoy.
We kick off this massive show with Sheldon, the Facilities Co-ordinator for the Gathering for Life on Earth. Sheldon shares some of the very cool things that will happen at the Festival during the last weekend in May.
How lucky is The Wigglian Way to have not one but TWO interviews for a single episode? Our second interview is with the esteemed philosper, Dr. Brendan Myers. The good Doc shares with us some of the exciting things happening in his life. Brendan has just published Circles of Meaning, Labyrinths of Fear and his first novel, Fellwater (which is on my nook and I am reading right now- well not now, but you know what I mean). Brendan has also "published" Iron Age- Council of the Clans which is a downloadable game. How's that for a busy man?
Speaking of busy men, Devin Hunter- podkin extraordinaire, has a number of projects happening all at once as well! Modern Witch Magazine First Edition is now available as is Devin's book 10 Things You Can Do Now to make Your Magic More Effective. Considering Devin now has more hours in the day than the rest of us I think the has read his own book.
There is nothing like Hippy Pagan People to brighten your day and thankfullythe lovely Bekah Kelso has written a great song to prove it! What Lucky Bird (s) we are that we get to feast on these lovely sounds just as the Seething Sun is growing ever stronger. These three songs are all part of our Feature Album Departures by Bekah Kelso.
Folks, thanks for visiting with us for 99 Episodes. As we head in to a new millenia of episodes we want to thank you for walking The Wigglian Way!

Thanks for hanging with us everyone! xoxo

On Episode 97 we are fortunate to get to talk with Inanna Gabriel and Jason White about the anthology Etched Offerings. You can find out more about and purchase Etched Offerings at Misanthrope Press. I had a lot of fun doing this interview.
We also had fun giving away some swag. The correct answer to the question, Who is the big named pagan at the helm of Pendraig Publishing, was Peter Paddon. Everyone answered correctly but we had only one copy of Raymond Buckland's Golden Illuminati to give away. That's OKAY because on this episode we have another contest. You'll have to listen to the show for the details.
Our musical selections are tonnes of fun too! The Feature Album is 2Know, 2Will, 2Dare, 2Rock by Witch's Mark. From this album we hear Wiccan Soldier, The Other People, and A Witch Alone. Mojo warned folks that it was heavy but I think it's okay (wink wink). As is our usual M.O. we asked our guests what they'd like to hear and they chose Kenny Klein and SJ Tucker. We chose Heart beat from Haphazard by Sooj and from Kenny we hear Pagan Girl from the album Ghosts of the Delta.
We are having an "interview-a-thon" for the month of April. If you would like to be interviewed in April or May please send us an email at email@example.com and we'll have a bit of a chat.

There are no tears let alone 96 of them. We are so happy to be bringing you this guerilla episode of The Wigglian Way. It was a spur of the moment show and we think you'll enjoy it.
Since Episode 95 we have received more information regarding The Sun Wheel Arts Festival in Alberta. First and foremost, S.J. Tucker will be performing at the festival. Lucky Alberta and lucky us! We are going to be there too. Mojo will be performing solo and I will be recording something for the show. Alberta band Raven's Call will also be onstage and we are looking forward to that as well.
Mojo and I are both recovering from our trip to Pantheacon. In this episode we share with you all the events we attended and some of our private moments. One of the "private" moments is that we were guests on Pagan Chaos Magic with Ki'a Dragon. We are looking forward to hearing that episode and will let you know when it airs.
Lastly, we weigh in on the contraversy that has again reared it's ugly head at Pantheacon. Our point of view may not be the most popular one but it is based on our love of freedom and the right to speak.
It's all about the Love. Thanks for walking The Wigglian Way!

Two steps forward and one back? The closer we get to Episode 100 the harder it is to see. We will get there. It's only 5 episodes. It's bound to happen. Right? Right? Right!
We talk about the busy month that February is turning out to be for us. For such a short month it sure has a lot packed into it. Sparrow's segment is quaintly named, "clothing/modesty/misogyny/slut whore topic"...and is a rant against the word SLUT. We discuss about many workshops and lectures that are available at Pantheacon, in San Jose, this year and which ones we'd like to go to. We leave in just a few days.
The feature album for tonight's episode is, As Nature Intended, by Damh the Bard. It's a live unplugged album and we LOVE it! From the album we hear Pagan Ways, Gently Johnny, and The Hills they are Hollow. Alexander James Adams, Sharon Knight, and T.Thorn Coyle will all be at Pantheacon so we share some of their music with you on Episode 95. From Alec we hear Blood and Passion from Balance of Nature. From Sharon and Thorn's album Songs for the Strengthening Sun we hear Joys of Springtime.
The Sun IS strengthening. If we all sing, laugh, dance, and love LOUD the Sun will return. Summer will come again.
Speaking of summer, we have our first summer festival announcement! The Sun Wheel Pagan Arts Festival, June 29th to July 2nd, just outside of Edmonton, Alberta!
Thanks for visiting with us and for downloading the show. Thanks for walking The Wigglian Way!
