In this episode of PPOTE we are blessed to have with us once more, Kveldrida, and his Brother, Jeffe. We decide to tackle the ideas involving those characters in the community often refered to as Playgans or Posers, Hot Topic Pagans or Fluffy Bunnies. Just what is it about these folks that bring out so much negative commentary. Are they actually a part of the Pagan community and what might they be getting from their experience. We discuss our thoughts on why they draw such a visceral response from some and none from others. This conversation ranged all around and at several points I thought it was over then some other good point would be made and the show would go on. As such I wondered in the editing that the show might seem a bit disjointed or fragmented but it came together as a whole in the end I think. Let us know what you think. There were also a number of editing issues which I tried to fix in the post-production but am not sure how well I did. With four people it's difficult to get the mike setup in just the right way so it is what it is.
In the "What Does Fox Do" segment we get to see that Fox sometimes just drops the ball. I was supremely unprepared for this episode and felt like I had been caught a bit flat-footed when the segment came around so I simply fell back on Podcast listening as a thing I do. Lame, right, but it made a great segue into,,,,,
"Podcast of the Week" which is "New World Witchery". In the episode I discuss they did a great examination of various aspects of the Trickster God ideology. It was this episode that inspired me to post that story about Fox and Coyote on FaceBook. They do a great job on this show and I do indeed reccommend it.
Belatine is rapidly approaching and with it the start of camping season (we do all year-round here but ,,,) Arrowind and Foxfire will be presenters at the Mountain Mysteries Manifestations Beltaine campout and we are quite looking forward to that. You should pull yourself up, if you are so inclined, and get yourself some of that outdoors Pagan campout experience if you can. There's nothing quite like it. I hope that this show finds everybody well and enjoying themselves and the world around them.
