- Thelema Now! Guest: George Pendle (58 minutes)
You know that kooky TV show “Strange Angel” on CBS All Access (which no longer streams through Amazon Prime – thanks Amazon)?
Well, it’s based on a book of the same name by George Pendle! George talks to Harper Feist about the book, the TV show, Jack Parson, and rocket science. Because Harper knows a thing or two about blowing stuff up. Listen and learn.

- Thelema Now! Guest: Joseph Peterson (2018) (80 mins)
Joseph Peterson spoke at Leaping Laughter Lodge in Minneapolis, MN in July 2018 to an appreciative audience of about 20 people. It was seriously fun.
Joseph discusses putting together a witch’s handbook from the trial records of the Venetian Inquisition.
This grimoire, or handbook of magic, was confiscated by the Venetian Inquisition in 1636 from practicing witches. After decades of searching for this elusive text, Joseph now has the pleasure of presenting and translating it here for the first time. It contains their secret techniques for dealing with the more dangerous spirits or daemons, intentionally scattered and hidden within a collection of “secrets” comprising many detailed examples. Together these provide enough clues to enable practitioners to create their own spells for working with all the spirits cataloged.

- Thelema Now! Guest: Rain Al-Alim (30 minutes)
Host Harper Feist speaks to Rain Al-Alim, which is the nom de plume of the author of Jinn Sorcery. He has chosen to remain anonymous to avoid the stigmatization that practitioners of magic and sorcery can experience in his country – and the punishment can include beheading in some countries. He holds a degree in journalism and is currently studying Arabic philology; and he has studied and practiced the occult arts for approximately 17 years.
