Episode ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE! IS DONE!
No such thing as short and sweet at The Wigglian Way. Unless we are talking about Sparrow, but we are not. This episode is full of fun. Two hours, two minutes, and 21 seconds of Wigglian funtasticness!
Sable Aradia dropped by the studio to share a little about her friend Heather Carr. There were a lot of incorrect media reports out there and Sable shares what she feels actually happened. Hail and Farewell Heather!
Mojo got to almost faint...I mean "interview" SJ Tucker about her new album, Stolen Season, which just happens to be our feature album for this show. The two of them discussed the album song by song. That is one of my favourite types of interview to listen to. It's interesting to get a glimps of the process.
We had to have a "Mini Feature Album" for this episode because Damh the Bard just released his new album, Sabbat. From Sabbat, we hear Iron from Stone and The Wicker Man.
Last, but not least, I had the honour of interviewing Lon Milo Duquette. Lon is going to be visiting Vancouver for the 100th birthday of the Masons being in Vancouver. Lon will be playing a concert May 15th at The Railway Club. On Monday, May 18th, he will be teaching three workshops at LON-A-THON.
Thank you to all our guests and musicians for being on the show. Thank you, for spending some of your time with us. We appreciate you all. It's all about the Love.

These were the shownotes of our lives. Actually, this is the third time I am writing these shownotes. Upon reflection, I believe they have taught me one of two things. Either the lost shownotes are the meanest teachers of patience OR they are teaching me to get a different type of keyboard next time.
As they say...the show must go on.
I also got to interview a fun guest. John Beckett joined me via Skype in the studio to talk about "The Care and Feeding of Activists". John writes a blog called Under the Ancient Oaks, at Patheos Pagan.
Our Feature Album this show is Salterello by Magicfolk. We hear Dance of the Honey Bees, Bedlam Boys, and Babylon. Magicfolk combine traditional and modern influences creating music with a powerful, otherworldly atmosphere. There music ranges from energetic folk reels to Eastern European dance tunes to ethereal ballads, progressive rock and psychodelia.
We just got confirmation about a number of things regarding SunWheel Arts and Music Festival 2015. First, we found out that Kellianna AND Arthur Hinds are going to be performing this year. We can't wait to see Kellianna again and we have been waiting a long time to meet Arthur. To celebrate, we will hear Arthur's Greenwood Woman from Poetry of Wonder and Kellianna's Maiden, Mother, Crone from Lady Moon.
Thanks for downloading the show! Thanks for walking The Wigglian Way!

It seems we are on a roll.
We hope you had a great holiday and that 2014 was a great year for you!
At home for the holidays, Auntie Bunnie, stopped by the Wigglian Way studio to talk with us about the paper she wrote for her program at Canterbury. The program is called Myth, Cosmology, and the Sacred and is the only one of it's kind. Tune in to find out more...
Mojo thought that since Auntie is a classic Lady (been in the Craft for a long time) that we would play classic pagan music this episode.
The Feature Album is Lady Isadora:Priestess of the Pentacle and from that we hear, Priestess of the Pentacle, Witches Brew Blues, and Wintery Skies.
We also hear one of Sparrow's favourites from way back, Gypsy with Lady from the album Enchantress. To round out our musical selection for the episode, we have chosen for your enjoyment, Charlie Murphy and Jami Sieber with Calling on the Spirits from Canticles of the Light.
Thank for walking The Wigglian Way!

Hi there! We're over here! Ah, yes, nice to see you. Thank you for joining us here on the Wigglian Way.
We have a full and interesting episode.
Mojo got to interview his friend and teacher Jeff Stockton for this episode. They chat about music, magic, and the Song.
The feature album is called Mystical Creature, by Jessica Star. The album was recorded and produced by friend of the Wigglian Way, Winter. From Mystical Creature we hear Red Pheonix Aflame, The River, and to end the show, Wesa.
The music for the second break is by our special guest, Jeff Stockton. From his album Between Two Lights we enjoy, Midwinter Fires and Grandmother Snow.
Peter Paddon, from Mojo and I, and all Wigglians everywhere...Hail and Farewell, Friend. Bendith.

Episode 126 is brought to you by the letter DARK.
The music is dark and the subject matter is often at least some shade of dark. We are talking about divorce on this episode. In fact, I got to interview Diana Rajchel about her new book, Divorcing a Real Witch: For Pagans and the people that used to Love Them. Often we don't get enough information about divorce and how to go about it in a healthy way. Thanks to Diana, we have a pagan resource for that now. Thank you for joining us Diana.
Due to the subject matter, and the fact that we met Damh the Bard and he likes metal music, we are playing all heavy tunes this show.
The Feature album comes to us from Tyr and their 2011 release, The Lay of Thyrm. From The Lay of Thyrm, we hear The Lay of Thyrm, Evening Star, and to end the show Stargazer.
We wanted to keep with the metalness of the episode and so we round out the evenings musical entertainment with Leaves' Eyes, Twilight Sun from the Vinland Saga cd and Cruachan with Viking Slayer, from the Pagan cd.
We have been having a great summer and hope that you are too.
It's all about the Love!

We strive for Episode 125, and what happens? It Happens.
We have a pretty packed show for you.
We share a little bit about Morning Glory Zell and her passing. Hail and Farewell, Morning Glory! You were and continues to be an inspiration.
Mojo has had a few really great weeks and he tells us a little bit about his experience at the Shamanic Conference. Not only that, but GODZILLA was recently released and we were able to see it on opening night.
Blessed belated Beltaine. Ours was fantastic and we hope yours was too.
We have two events to share with you this episode. First, Sharon Knight and Winter are going to be here, in the Wigglian Theatre, July 24th. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets. Limited seating so get your tickets today!
Mojo is playing the Sun Wheel Arts Festival June 27-July 1 in Central Alberta. I will be there too as your Mistress of Ceremonies. We are so excited and hope to see you there.
You may or may not be aware of who is headlinging the Sun Wheel Arts Festival, but we sure are, and you definitely want to be there. Damh the Bard is visiting Alberta from the UK. I believe that it is his first time in Canada. Let's show him a good time because I KNOW he will be showing us one.
On that note, our Feature Album is one of Damh's. From his 2009 release, Tales of the Crow Man, we hear The Cutty Wren and Hal and Tow. We conclude Episode 125 with Damh's The Two Magicians from the same album.
Also, please welcome to the show, Tina Malia with her song, The Silent Awakening.
Thanks for listening to the show! It's all abuot the love.

This episode is jampacked. We have three interviews, crowdfunding news, protesters, and dear friends.
Have you heard about Sir Mojo and his Quest for the Love Leaf? If not, and I am sure you haven't yet, have a listen to Mojo's interview with the lovely and multi-talented Heather Dale. Heather and Mojo chat about the Celtic Avalon crowdfunding campaign.
Save the Bison in Yellowstone! That's exactly what our friend Comfrey Root did and continues to keep doing. I had the pleasure of sitting down to chat with Comfrey. He shares some of his incredble story. Tune and and if you can, do what you can to support the Buffalo Field Campaign.
Have we got a surprise for you! A third interview. The other day Mojo had the chance to talk with our old friend Arthur Hinds. Arthur has some interesting things happening and for them to come to fruition, he has a Kickstarter campaign. Click here to hear all about the campaign. Support your Pagan artists! Without them we are doomed.
The Feature Album is Holy Picnic by Aleppo Pine from Barcelona Spain. From that album we hear Magic Dolmen, Mystic Lady, and to conclude the show, Dead Garden.
Finally, a request from Mojo and myself to help our friend Ckyle Hanson realise some dreams before he has finished here. Ckyle has been diagnosed with cancer that is inoperable and untreatable. He would like to visit Yellowstone Park and record a number of songs that he has written. Doing that costs money. Money that Ckyle doesn't and won't have without our help. He is a good, sweet, loving soul. If you can help with this, great. If you can't, fight cancer where and when you can. Ckyle has a crowdfunding campaign at gofundme.

Thanks everybody for downloading the show! We have a real good for you tonight.
Tonight we are joined by the President of The Sacred Circle of the Great Mystery Shamanic Society, John-Luke Edwards. John-Luke tells us about his path and Returning to 4 Legs- 6th BC Residential Shamanic Conference & Gathering.
Speaking about 10th anniversaries, The Wigglian Way would like to congratulate The Wild Hunt on their 10th year anniversary! Thank you, Jason for providing this fantastic resource, here's to another 10 years!
It sure feels great to be back behind the mics, thank you for spending your time with us!
It's all about the Love!

Told ya! We had no doubts. We are really stoked about the show and all the interviews, information, and interesting add ons that we want to bring you in upcoming episodes.
This episode was pretty special for us to make. It didn't start that way. At first we were both going to do informational segments. I know I had mine prepared and ready to go, and I am almost positive that Mojo's segment was polished to gleaming as well.
Those segments so didn't happen. I had asked on Facebook if anyone wanted to weigh in on my "Forgiveness" (now) series. The specific topic was on "forgiving onself" and we got some great replies. I opened my email to find a well thought out response from a dear friend. When I read her response I knew that we had to invite Brenda Titus on the show to share her thoughts on forgiveness and the work she is doing in that vein. Brenda is a hypnotherapist and you can find her at Orange County Hypnotherapy. You can join or follow Brenda at her at her Healing Path Hypnosis facebook page.
Our feature album AND first segment are all HEATHER DALE. Heather Dale ROCKS. We love her! When you meet her you will too. We love you too Ben! Mojo got to sit down over skype and talk with Heather about her new crowdfunding project. We think the Celtic Avalon tour would be massively successful and so much fun. To view and support Heather's project click here. You know you wanna!
Sadly, very sadly, we cannot make it to Pantheacon this year. Our friends Sharon and Winter are playing the Cedar/Pine room on Saturday night at 9pm, with their band Pandemoneaon. From the album Dangerous Beauty we hear The Tower and Queen of Shadows.
