The Oddcast

The SHWEP podcast is basically chronological, but there’s only so much chronology that anyone can take. The Oddcast features interviews from the whole historical scope of western esotericism. When the chronology catches up with episodes here, they migrate to the main podcast, but there’s no reason to wait years to listen to an interview we have now.

There are also interviews here which take in such a broad sweep of chronology that they belong in more general context, and here they shall remain.
