“Channeling for Dummies” with Pro-Witch Bill Philipps

November 20, 2019

Tune your channel, raise your vibe, and get ready to start seeing signs from the other side! We get the big skinny on how to be a medium between realms from psychic-medium and author Bill Philipps. This opera-singer-turned-psychic-medium speaks to angels and has the voice of one. Bill walks Leah & Rachel through the day in the life of a medium, and chat blessings in disguise, toilet magick, and how to channel with the other side through intention and surrender. As Bill puts it, there is no heaven, and hell is the Earth-plane we already live in - so we might as well enjoy it while we're here! In closing, Leah and Rachel give Bill (@billphilipps) a Goddess Oracle card reading that's sure to reach you in divine timing.

November 13, 2019

Our first-ever returning guests come back as a duo for double the fun! It's bad-ass "Weed & Grub" podcast co-hosts Mary-Jane Gibson and Michael Glazer.

“Keepin’ It Real” with Conner Moore

“Keepin’ It Real” with Conner Moore

October 9, 2019

Things get real with personal development coach & host of "The Realness" podcast Conner Moore! He may have perfect bone structure, but his upbringing and life have been far from perfect. Conner chats with Leah and Rachel about accepting the darkness within instead of shaming it, challenging toxic masculinity, and embracing others exactly where they are without judgement. From magic mushrooms, to the ultra-intelligent Iowaska plant, to being naked and blind-folded beating a pillow until he collapsed in somatic therapy - this man has tried it all. In closing, Leah and Rachel give Conner (@connerwanders) a Goddess Oracle Card reading.

“Level UP!” with Pro Witch Kat Trimarco

“Level UP!” with Pro Witch Kat Trimarco

September 25, 2019

Spiritual psychology and sex & relationship coach *and* author of "Self-Approved", Kat Trimarco, knows first-hand that once you see the pattern, you're not the pattern. She broke her pattern, got sober, and leveled up by being her f*cking self and she knows everyone is capable of the same. Like her book, this episode is jam-packed with helpful reminders about rock bottoms, the beauty of failure, erotic blueprints, the importance of embodiment, and making loving space for "negative" emotions. Get ready to level up, witches. In closing, Leah and Rach give Kat (@kat_trimarco) a Goddess Oracle Card reading.
