EP 47: Bonus Witch History with Katy Hearne-Church - The Lineage of Elizabeth Woodville
Witch History with Katy Hearne-Church - The Lineage of Elizabeth Woodville
In this bonus episode I am joined by Katy Hearne-Church. Katy is the co-host and creator of Queens Podcast, a fun show about women in history.
I invited Katy to come tell us everything she knows about Elizabeth Woodville…and it turned into a gorgeous episode about a wonderfully witchy lineage beginning with melusina, Jacquetta of Luxembourg, Elizabethe Woodville, and Queen Elizabeth I and a returning serpent that had been painted out at some point in history.
And what better season to talk about historical witches, learn more about the lineage of witchcraft from the eurocentric lens, and dive deep into ancestry…than the witchiest time of year, spooky-shadow season. Right now. October, November, and December.
In the heart of the eclipse portal and as the veil thins and we cruise towards Samhain we learn more about women who laid a trail for us as empowered females who didn’t bow to the norm.
Buckle your seatbelts my dear community. We’re getting witchy, historical, hysterical, and crass as Katy walks us through an education on historical women, well known and accused of witchcraft - because are you really anyone… if you haven’t been accused of occult practices?
