In this episode: Do you believe in witches? Do they only come out at Halloween? Is magic real? What does it mean to call yourself a Witch? We are going to answer these questions and more when we have a conversation with a real live Witch. “When you start looking for witches, you find them everywhere.

An inside look at the vital stories of women who have practiced--and lived--magic.” Missing Witches 2022.
