First, I seem to have a code in my node but that didn't stop us from making this episode. Twice. Long story, but I think Mojo covers it in the show.
Wow, did we ever have a great time at Pantheacon 2013. For anyone who missed it, we missed you, and we hope to see you next year. Both of us LOVE the atmosphere at Con. It's so us and we have so much fun.
Some of the fun we had included gorgeous ladies of music. I got to interview Wendy Rule and Sharon Knight. Together. At the same time. I was sweating (er...glowing) bullets. However, they were both so kind and so generous with their thoughts that they made it easy for me. I know you will enjoy the interview.
Of course, considering that they are both musicians, all our music this episode comes from Wendy and Sharon. The feature album is Live at the Castle on the Hills, by Wendy Rule. From that cd we hear Dance of the Wild Faeries, Animus, and Guided by Venus.
We were so lucky to win a silent auction at Pantheacon for a gorgeous Grandfather drum called "SunDog". He is a beautiful and already well loved part of our coven and the rest of the group hasn't even met him! "SunDog" was created by Don Schulz who is the proprietor of The Different Drum. Thanks so much Don!
That wraps that up! Thanks for listening! Thanks for walking, The Wigglian Way.

Do you know the way to San Jose? We do, and this time it isn't by plane. We are driving it we are so hard core.
You know who will be at Pantheacon? Jason Mankey. Jason is also our guest this show. Thanks for taking the time to spend with us, Jason.
On this episode we also share with you our Pantheacon workshop choices. With the best intentions, we make this list every year. Every year we hardly go to any workshops. There are so many people to meet and talk to!
Another exciting thing that has happened lately is SJ Tucker finished the soundtrack for Ember Days and she gave us (WIGGLIANS!!) a sneak peak. You get to hear part of the soundtrack early. From the movie, Ember Days, we present We Were Angels Once and Among the Heroes.
Our feature album is HEAVY. It needs to be heavy to balance SJ"s soundtrack. What is heavy enough? MaterDea's Satyricon is heavy enough! From that album we hear the title track Satyricon, Lady of Inverness, and Between the Temple's Walls.
Thank YOU for taking the time to download the show. We hope you are enjoying it. Thanks for walking, The Wigglian Way.

Thanks everybody for downloading the show, we are so glad that you did!
We have an exciting episode for you! It's a double dose of the medicine called Sharon Knight.
Sharon graced our studio with her virtual Skype presence to talk music and her new endeavour, The Ring of Enchantment.
During our second set of music we hear Imbolc from George Nicholas's album, Wild Soul and Bekah Kelso rounds out your musical entertainment this episode with Crossroads, from the movie Ember Days. Bekah was hugely involved in Ember Days and even plays Hekate of the Crossroads.
Thanks for joining us and spending some of your day listening to The Wigglian Way!

Episode 112 and into our 7th year. Thank you for keeping us here.
We are so lucky to have ECO-PRIESTESS in the house! It's and Environmental day at Le' Studio Wigglian Way! Mojo and I have taken a pledge to move CHANGE forward. Look around, every one is doing it and talking about it. Change is in the air. One of the ways that we will help enact change is that we will cover Idle No More for a bit. It may be one show, it may be all of them.
We feature Damh the Bard's newest cd Antlered Crown and Standing Stone. At the first break we hear Antlered Crown and Standing Stone and Down in the Garden. Damh's song The Dreaming will be after the third segment.
We have a new musical guest on this episode and her name is Ginger Doss. Where have you been, Lady, that we are just getting to know you now? Luckily, she sent us some tunes and we hear Ginger Doss' Magic, from the Hand and Hammer cd.
Thanks for walking The Wigglian Way! It's all about the love.

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!

The Feature album this episode is Heather Dale's 2009 release The Green Knight. From that we hear Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Maiden and the Selkie, and For Guinevere. Heather and Ben were recently here at The Wigglian Showcase and we were sure glad to hear them and get to spend some one on one time with them.
Swag was given away on this episode and we are still waiting...only one week left...for the winner of Etched Offereings to contact us with her snail mail address or she won't get it and it will go up for grabs again. There was also new swag announced.
