Today is the Solstice. If you are reading/listening to this show after Solstice, WE MADE IT!!
It's actually the beginning of so many things. The old age is over and the new age has begun.
For this, the last episode of the calendar year and also the episode that closes 6 years of Wigglian podcasting, we have a special guest. We were lucky enough to get a recording of a lecture that Ronald Hutton gave in September in London, England. Sparrow was supposed to be at that lecture but was unable to make it. Our good friend, Dennis, was kind enough to record it and send it to us. We hope you enjoy and learn a little about Pagan History.
We are not featuring an album on this episode but have 5 seasonal tunes for your enjoyment.
Our first song is by Damh the Bard and is called The Winter King, from the Spirit of Albion. Next we hear Light of the World by Sharon Knight and T. Thorn Coyle from the album Songs for a Waning Year.
We borrowed from mainstream music for the next three songs and they are Merry Christmas Baby (by Charles Brown, from the Blues at Christmas 1 cd), Little Drummer Boy (Bob Seger, Ultimate Hits), and finally Winter Wonderland (REO Speedwagon, Not So Silent Night).
Blessed Yule everybody. Stay safe and warm and don't drink and drive.
Thanks for Walking the Wigglian Way!

AKA THE NEW CHARGE!
If you recall, last time Auntie Bunnie visited the Wigglian Studios she challenged me (Sparrow) to write a Charge of the Goddess. The challenge was that we would borrow from poetry and/or prose and come up with a new Charge. Well, finally, mine got finished enough to share with you all on The Wigglian Way. I believe that Louise had hers ready within weeks of the challenge.
We won't be recording for a few weeks as Mojo is away at Grey Cup and visiting his family.
Thanks for downloading and listening to the show!
It's all about the Love.

Greetings and Happy New Year!
On this episode we have the second part of my interview with M. Macha Nightmare. We've had a pretty good response to the first part, so we hope you enjoy the second.
Our Feature album is Archives of Ages to Come by our friends, Emerald Rose. We hear Come to the Dance, Queen of Argyll, and Dagger of the Moon. This album is great!
One of our neighbours, who just happens to listen to the show, came over and brought copies of music that her friends had recorded. First, we hear Cyrus' Song, from the album Satsang, by Heidi Windebank. We also hear Elephant Trainer by Matthew McCully and the Matter of Principle.
Thank you for downloading the show!

We told you we have an interview with a BNP and here it is! Well, the first part anyway. Sparrow was lucky enough to get to chat with M. Macha Nightmare. It was fun and educational. Macha and Sparrow discuss history of the Craft and Change.
Mojo and Sparrow want to make sure that everyone knows that if YOU are being bullied, talk to someone. If you don't have anyone, talk to us. Bullying is a waste of time. Don't do it.
We also want to let the world know that our friend, Peter Paddon and his lovely partner Linda, are on their way to living a "normal" life again. Peter suffered a massive heart attack but through his strength in conjunction with prayer/energy/love/spells from all around the planet he is alive and "good to go". Thanks for sticking with us Peter!
The Western Gate Samhain Festival is this weekend in Kelowna. If you can, try to make it out. There aren't many festivals this time of year and I hear this one is going to be good.
The Feature Album for Episode 107 is the second disc, Through a Sylvan Doorway, by Spiral Dance. We hear Witches Tree, Sing the Stones, and Feet of Clay.
We also hear from our lovely and beautiful friends, Jenna Greene and Kellianna. From Jenna we hear Harvest from the Crossroads album. From Kellianna we hear Sparrow's favourite Kellianna tune, Autumn Wind from I Walk with the Goddess .
Thanks for walking The Wigglian Way!

Mojo was very lucky to be able to interview Sabina Magliocco for this episode. She is a brilliant educator and we thank her very much for gracing our show with her presence.
During the last little while The Wigglian Way studios received a wonderful bit of mail which ends up being our Feature Album. It is a double album by Spiral Dance, called, Through a Sylvan Doorway. From this new release we hear The Sylvan Doorway, Fae Dance, and Asgard's Chase. The three tracks we play from this 2012 release are all on the 1st disc. Wait until we hear the 2nd one!
To complete our playlist for Episode 106 we hear Sharon Knight and Pandemonaeon with Scent of your Skin, from Temple of Dreams.
As Mojo promised, we have good news/bad news and bad news/good news. Tune in to find out what that might be.
It's all about the Love!

We are on a roll.
We are pretty excited to bring you this episode of The Wigglian Way. First, we have the last interview from our April interview-a-thon with Jason Mankey. This fella knows a lot about a lot of Witchy stuff and this time he talks to us about Drawing down the Moon.
Our Feature album is Wild Earth Child by the gorgeous and talented Jenna Green. From that recording we hear Phoenix, Muse, and Chapel of the Wood. In addition to being beautiful Jenna is also kind and has the hugest heart. She sent The Wigglian Way, yes THREE, copies of Wild Earth Child to give away to You, our listeners. They are signed folks. Sweet huh? Listen for details.
On a sad note, we say good-bye to Dave from the PCP. Dave gave a lot to the community and we will miss him for that.
We are continuing the contest for swag from Quadrivium Supplies until the next show, so get your entries in!

Well, maybe not the episode but the interview we have for you this episide is long overdue. Catherine of Quadrivium Supplies spent some quality time with me (Sparrow) and we had a great chat. Enjoy and learn.
Mojo has been rocking out lately. In fact, he seems to be in a "hardcore" place and so is sharing more hardcore Pagan music with you this week. Our feature album is, By the Light of the Northern Star by Tyr (release 007). From that album we first hear Hold the Heathen Hammer High and title track By the Light of the Northern Star. We finish up with Tyr's Northern Gate. We also have for your listening pleasure Icarus Witch with Funeral Wine from Draw Down the Moon and The Green Man from MaterDea's Satyricon.
