Full Circle 10/27/17: Mythology and History of Witches

Good evening, everyone … and welcome to Full Circle, your cultural affairs radio magazine produced by members of the First Voice Apprenticeship Program.

On tonight’s show, just a few days before Halloween, we will delve into both the mythology and known history of witches.   I am pleased to welcome my guest Max Dashu, the founder of the Suppressed Histories Archives.

Tonight …

…  We will learn why and how Max created the Archives and how it is used …

…  We will discuss the history and mythology of witches in folk religions ancient and contemporary …

…  And we will explore the pattern of persecution carried out against the European folk religions and then exported with the conquest and colonization of other areas of the world.

All that tonight on Full Circle.

About First Voice Apprenticeship

First Voice Apprenticeship is an apprenticeship program at KPFA 94.1 FM in Berkeley and is designed to provide comprehensive broadcast, technical, and administrative skills training in radio. First Voice also aims to build and strengthen community and empower our participants to find their voice and tell their stories. The First Voice program is based on community building, a collaborative work environment and passing on our skills and stories. We focus on bringing women and people of color into media and work in partnership with Pacifica community radio station KPFA and other community media outlets, both locally and nationally. The First Voice Apprenticeship Program is currently 18 months. Everyone is required to spend one business day each week working at KPFA, as well as two class nights. The dayshift is a three hour shift and apprentices do administrative and production tasks. The dayshift runs on an intergenerational group learning model, with each phase teaching the next, and integrates service to the station, skills acquired in classes, motivation and leadership.
