A Witch's Primer

A Witch's Primer is a podcast of basic 'how to' for newcomers to the Craft. It is nondenominational, there is no agenda and it is an excellent podcast. (It is also put out by my personal favorite podcaster, Ariel). It is wonderful information for anyone new to the Craft, for any solitary who is figuring things out alone and for all of the rest of us who could use a refresher or just find it interesting. There is a real need for this information and I personally applaud Ariel for taking on the project.

A Witch's Primer was available on iTunes but it came to the attention of some of the religious zealots and attracted hate mail and negative comments on iTunes. Apparently there was some response from it's loyal listeners and a flame war was in the making. Since this was not the intent of the project, Ariel removed the show from iTunes, hopefully temporarily.

I really believe that this information, in this format, is essential at this point of the evolution of the Craft and I would like to ask everyone who reads this blog to help to get the word out, within our community, that this podcast is still up and running, it is just not on iTunes any more.

The show is at A Witch's Primer

Please help spread the word, and you might like to tune in and listen for yourselves. I do and I enjoy the show a lot.


  1. Isn't that silly?! I couldn't believe it, that the tolerance and love that church people preach seems to be conditional? I put a blurb in my blog about freedom belonging to all not a select few.

  2. well done- we need all the accurate inforamtion we ca get about us out there xx

  3. Hi Celestite. Thank you so much for your very kind words about A Witch's Primer. I love your blogs and all that you do. ITunes has been great. They have worked with us and helped us with some different ideas about how to list the Primer on ITunes while mitigating the flame wars and hate mail. They put us back up today and we are going under the main "Religion and Spirituality" category for now. We will keep trying different things until we find our "groove." So we are back on Itunes for the time being!
