And the incense is yet more sandalwood as Juni hasn’t had time to make more smudge sticks.

We read some listener feedback and gush about that. Then Bren feels sad and lonely being the only Pagan philosophy professor in the world. Bren also asks about teaching via his forum. Juniper tries to rant about how cake can be intellectual and spiritual at the same time, but winds up rambling instead.

 

 

Standing Stone

Bren tosses his hat in the rig for Battle of the Bards, called as such by our friends at Shortening the Road and Kakophonos. In which he reads from his book A Pagan Testament about the Bardic Arts.
