“Believe Build Become” with Natacha Hildebrand

“Believe Build Become” with Natacha Hildebrand

May 22, 2019

A rising tides lifts all ships, and Natacha "Tach" Hildebrand could darn well be the captain of all those ships. She didn't just work her way from the ground up - she quite literally did it from the basement up. Now VP and GM of AllBright, Tach is a strong female force connecting women at all levels (fellas, too!). We talk about "Mudita", the Power of Three... women in leadership positions!, and the power of teaching boys and men it's okay to feel all the feels. This episode is packed with synchronicities, realness, and inspo, so listen up and then *act*! We need as many enlightened people connecting as possible! In closing, Leah and Rachel give Natacha a Goddess Oracle Card reading.

“The Circles of Life” with Pro-Witch Maja D’Aoust

“The Circles of Life” with Pro-Witch Maja D’Aoust

May 15, 2019

This is a big one. Like, life and death big. If you ask Pro-Witch Maja D'Aoust (www.witchofthedawn.com), there are no endings and beginnings, no life and death - simply a changing of forms. Maja schools us on alchemy, the Ouroboros (the snake eating itself), growing up Pagan, the I-Ching, and seeing the never-ending circles of life. This smart witch is anti-manifest, anti-abundance, and a total centrist, so enjoy this change of pace! In closing, we end with a very well-rounded card pull using the power of three.

“The Power of No” with Neel Nanda

“The Power of No” with Neel Nanda

May 8, 2019

No doubt about it, stand-up comic Neel Nanda (Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Adam Devine's House Party) is a delight and total proof that failure leads to success. Hear how he *respectfully* rebelled against his religion... one burger at a time. Leah and Rachel chat with Neel about how small steps, consistency, and good karma will lead to your dreams coming true. Neel also shares a spo0o0oky Ouija board story! In closing, Leah and Rach give Neel (@neelnanda) a Goddess Oracle Card reading.

“Fill Your Cup” with Greg Santos

“Fill Your Cup” with Greg Santos

May 1, 2019

Actor, comedian, Cuban, and America's sweetheart (wait, sorry, that's Jen Aniston) - it's Greg Santos gettin' basic with the Witches! [Palo] Santos schools us on Santeros (the dark arts), crystals for warts, talismans, and other Cuban traditions - or as he calls them, "magical superstitions". We talk about manifestation, "rollover goals", filling your own cup so you can find love, and literally filling a cup for your loved ones in the afterlife. Thank the Goddesses, Greg is helping men unlearn machismo and totally supports Leah & Rachel's BPE. In closing, Leah and Rachel give Greg (@gregsantos) a Goddess Oracle Card reading that's sure to transform you.

“Do the Work” with Alex “On the Mic” Gervasi

April 24, 2019

Alex on the *other side of* the mic! iHeart Radio/KissFM DJ & Jersey girl of your dreams, Alex "on the Mic" Gervasi, gives us (and you!) free therapy in this episode talking about ghosting, "mosting", and how to stay coasting. We discuss these two villains in the Wild West of modern dating and how ultimately if you are doing the emotional work, you'll be okay. Yee-haw! We chat with Alex about body positivity, dispelling anxiety, how sexual freedom would heal many of our world's problems, and how more people need therapy. In closing, Leah and Rachel give Alex (@alexonthemic) a Goddess Oracle Card reading. Sit back, soak in all the good, and grab a glass of vino to sip with us in a BW first! Cheers, witch!

“*Real* Magic” with Ben Seidman

“*Real* Magic” with Ben Seidman

April 10, 2019

Trickster, pick-pocketer, illusionist - call him what you want, but at least he's honest about being a liar! It's *real* magician and comedian Ben Seidman in the studio! We examine the tricks of the trade in Ben's world of magic, as well as our witchy world. Ben dishes on working with Criss Angel, Penn & Teller, the powerful magic of gratitude, and Leah and Rach tell Ben about a recent Vegas *trip* they had that will make your mind freak. In closing, Rachel and Leah give Ben (@benseidman) a Goddess Oracle Card reading.

“Numerology for Dummies” with Pro Witch Josh Siegel

“Numerology for Dummies” with Pro Witch Josh Siegel

April 3, 2019

Leah and Rachel are joined by Pro-Witch numerologist, Josh Siegel, for an in-depth look at the numbers that make-up the (illusion of) the world around us. Taking a therapeutic approach, Josh uses the ancient science of numerology to call-out learning patterns and even DNA coding that may be keeping you stuck in your own Matrix. We dive into numbers in nature, human behavior, and why we are naturally drawn to certain "characters" in our lives. Josh gives Leah an in-depth numerology reading and in return, Leah and Rachel give Josh a more than fairly accurate Goddess Oracle Card reading.

La-la-la-la-Lola Langusta: DJ, creator of Stoned Fox, empress, and little-did-she-know-it green witch joins us for a chill yet profound episode. Keep a pen and journal handy as we talk about how to shape your future goals, releasing the past (it’s an illusion, anyways), and yeah, we may go on some tangents cuz we smoked some Lowell’s :) Lola enlightens us on shedding your ego, following your dream like there’s “no choice”, claiming your worth, and how to be your own hero. In closing, Rachel and Leah give the bud-Queen Lola (@lolalangusta) a blossoming Goddess Oracle Card reading.
