Folks, we have to work on getting the love out there and spread around. Things aren't going so well on our planet and it's people like you that can help change it.
On today's episode Sparrow had the chance to talk with Pegi Eyers. Pegi is a Canadian, celtic animist, activist, artist and so much more. This is our first, but we are sure not last, visit with Pegi and we hope to learn a lot from her. Pegi talks to us about working towards using our own indigenous knowledge for our spirituality, from her book Ancient Spirit Rising.
As we mentioned above, we all need to be working on spreading the love and being our own heroes. Mojo shares with us a ceremony that he created with his classmates in the training he is taking now. On the shoulders of Heroes is a ceremony that everyone can do and will help you to become the hero you want to be.
We are so happy to share with you some great music by Tyr for our Feature album. From the album Valkyrja we hear Blood of Heroes, Another Fallen Brother, and the title track Valkyrja.
From his yet to be released album, we hear Before my Eyes, by Mojo Kemp.
Thanks for spending this time with us and thank you for walking The Wigglian Way.

GRRRR. ANGER. BAD COMMUNICATION.
As noted above, this is my second time writing the show notes for this episode.
It figures, it's about Mercury Retrograde.
David Zunker, Wigglian Way official Astrologer is in the house with Sparrow. He tries to help Sparrow navigate the maze that Mercury Retrograde seems to be. You can find David at Twitter. David's horoscopes can be found here .
We were missing our friends Gaia Consort and felt it was time to revisit the 2001 album, Secret Voices. Secret Voices is the Feature album this episode. From it, we hear, Secret Womb of Night, Secret of the Rain, and All the Light in the World. This is a great album for this auspicious day.
Today is the Super Moon/Blood Moon/Harvest Moon/Lunar Eclipse. Some are saying it's the end of the World as we know it. I am sure it is. Things are pretty scary now and we need to be spreading the Love.
For the first time on The Wigglian Way, we hear, Bran Cerddorion with The Owl and the Eagle, from Four Branches.
Mojo has been working on an album this last little while. A lot of his music is about Love, resistance, activism and so many other issues. Last month, Mojo recorded a number of songs and this episode we hear Human Zoo. The album is as of yet, unnamed.
Thank you for listening and thank you for walking the Wigglian Way! We Love You!

Two episodes this month! We are on roll.
We are headed off to SunWheel Music and Arts Festival where Arthur Hinds, Kellianna, Sora, Mojo and more are going to be playing. Kellianna and Arthur are co headliners at SunWheel and to get into the spirit, we play both their music on this episode.
We went way back and play some of Kellianna's earlier tunes, Serpent Mound and Shares her Love, from I Walk With the Goddess.
Mojo interviewed Arthur about his newest album and we hear three songs from our feature album, Tome of Mystery. The three are Summerland, Wine and Water, and Air for the Full Moon.
Thank you to all our guests and thank you to our listeners. We wouldn't be able to do this without you. It's all about the Love.

May has been an incredibly busy month and we are so excited about what's to come in the Wigglian World.
Sable joins us once again to share some of her current pursuits with us. One of the many pursuits is the release of her book The Witch's 8 Paths of Power. I would recommend this book for your sacred library. We hope to have you on the show again soon, Sable.
I just love Mojo's current interview style where he has the artists tell us stories about how the songs came to be. I don't know what that style is called but it is engaging. Damh the Bard joined Mojo via Skype to talk about Sabbat, which is our Feature Album. This is a beautiful album and thank you for making it, Damh. From Sabbat we hear the title track, Sabbat, as well as Scarborough Faire, and to complete the show Thundersbarrow Hill. Wait to you learn about Scarborough Faire!
We also have a "mini" Feature Album addtion from SJ Tucker, just because she is THAT great. From Stolen Season, just because we can't get enough. we hear Dream of Mississippi and Sultry Summer Night. I will tell you that even though I was in Mississippi in December it was still hot and sultry. Loved it.
Mojo and I would like to share with you that we, along with our coven, have started a new Tradition. It is The Wigglian Tradition of Wicca. This is going to be a wonderful journey and we are so glad that you all are always a part of it.
It's all about the Love!

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!
