Well, we’ve reached that special time of year where it’s time to talk about ghost stories on the podcast! Sort of! This year, Trae is joined by Lee Bradford (creator of The Sweeney Tarot), who returns to the podcast after three years. We talk about ghosts, cryptids, and legends that don’t quite pan out. This year it’s a much more general episode wi…

In the last few years there has been some minor push back against using the name “Mabon” for the Autumnal Equinox. In this episode we’re going to talk about how Mabon got its name, who came up with the name, and why exactly a small group of British Traditional Wiccans are so mad about it. Spoiler: it’s because a bunch of Gardnerian Wiccans are mad …

It’s quite the packed episode. Important Li…
 
This month we’re talking about how we, as a community, need to actually verify that something is real before we start sharing it. Time and time again, something gets passed back and forth within the witchcraft community before someone actually bothers to ask the question “is this something that’s really happening?” Because sometimes it isn’t. (And,…
 
It’s July, so that means it’s time for the annual BS-Free Witchcraft Q&A episode! Listeners like you sent in questions, and I’m going to do my best to answer them. Could it be a complete disaster? Maybe! Only one way to find out though. (And, of course, don’t forget this show is part of the Nerd & Tie Podcast Network, and funded by listeners like y…

After that, we dive into the weird world of people blaming Disney for things they didn’t actually do — like supposedly trademarking the Norse …
 
In any movement or group there’s always a pull to do certain things to fit in. There’s an unspoken (or I guess sometimes spoken) peer pressure to do certain performative actions to conform. The modern witchcraft movement isn’t immune to this phenomenon either, and so that’s what we’re going to talk about this month. But, like, in a fun way. And a r…
 
On this episode of Nerd & Tie we talk start out talking about a convention not taking the proper steps during the pandemic. After that we hit some lighter topics, like MODOK, Eurovision, and Army of the Dead. So, like, it’s not a total downer or anything. In fact, most of this episode is pretty fun.By Trae Dorn, Nick Izumi and Gen Prock

After that we give our reviews for Godzilla vs. Kong, the full season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and the new Mortal Kombat movie. It’s a long one this month, but we promise it’s fun.…
 
While Nerd & Tie has a global audience, we’ve always felt Foolish that we don’t dedicate more resources to where we’re based — Northwestern Wisconsin. With that in mind, this April is bringing some big changes to the network. We’ve decided to join forces with the local podcast network Chippewa Valley Mainstreet Radio! Chippewa Valley Mainstreet Rad…

We also ask the important question of when will it be safe to go to conventions again. That’s a complicated one. Further Reading: Zack Sn…
 
This month we’re attempting to tackle a topic I’ve had on the list for a while: Norse Paganism’s Nazi problem. It’s not exactly the most fun thing in the world, but after a certain shirtless idiot was amongst the rioters that attempted to overthrow the United States government at the capitol on January 6th, I just couldn’t put it off any longer. I …
 
On this episode of the Nerd & Tie Podcast we’re talking about all the media we’ve been catching up on lately. Before that though, we mourn the loss of Mira Furlan, talk about the mess at MAGFest, Gen recounts her virtual Evercon, and we ponder the Godzilla vs. Kong trailer. We also meander throughout, and talk about how nice it is to stay indoors w…
 
The year is coming to an end, and that means it’s time for our annual Year in Review episode! We go through the very best and worst of movies, TV shows, video games, anime, and conventions like we do every year… only this year, some of these categories are a lot harder to figure out. Because, y’know, 2020. This episode was sponsored in memory of Pa…
 
This month on the BS-Free Witchcraft podcast we’re tackling ghosts — which may sound like an October topic, but instead of spooky stories we’re instead going for practical advice on how to deal with them. What do you do if you encounter a ghost in the wild? What do you do if you think there’s a ghost in your home? It’s the perfect thing to discuss …
 
This month on The Nerd & Tie Podcast we eventually get around to asking the important question “When will be able to go to conventions again?” Before that though, we follow a meandering road through Apple’s new M1 powered Mac computers, Johnny Depp still being terrible, Deadpool 3 actually being greenlit, and a whole bunch of other upcoming movies …

Joining me this episode (from all around the Nerd & Tie Podcast Network) are Gen Prock (from The Nerd & Tie Podcast and Stormwood & Associates), Cris Sass-Council (from Let’s Be Legendar…
 
On this episode of the Nerd & Tie Podcast we’re talking about spooky stuff you can stream this Halloween to get in the spirit (since all parties are cancelled for obvious pandemic reasons). Like sure, there’s a lot of new stuff on demand too, but why not take advantage of the streaming libraries you’re already paying for? Before that though we catc…
 
On this episode of The Nerd & Tie Podcast we’re all back in the studio to talk about some serious and weird convention news. We’re focusing on three news stories this month, starting with Oregon based artist (and convention regular) Stephen “OutNerdMe” Poon getting indicted on child sex abuse charges. Then we lighten things up with Tennessee based …
 
On this episode of the podcast we’re going towards a more positive note, and talking about a pretty great thing in the larger Witchcraft and Pagan community. I’m joined by Amanda Tomasini, former organizer of Central Illinois Pagan Pride Day, to discuss… well… Pagan Pride Day. Kind of spoiled that one there, didn’t I. (And, of course, don’t forget …
 
So the world is a massive garbage fire at the moment, and we’re all trying to cope. Witchcraft right now isn’t the easiest thing to do, and we need to take the time and acknowledge that it’s okay to not to feel jazzed about it sometimes. Like — it’s okay to not be okay. Also, apparently we’re all astral projecting and sleeping with people in their …
