And now for something completely different! In this episode of The Infinite and the Beyond, we have our first combocast with Garret Husveth and Gordon Ward from Haunted New Jersey; this being their seventy third overall podcast and our fourth. I just want to let any new listeners know that this is not a usual episode of The Infinite and the Beyond, however, it is a fun one and I hope you enjoy it!

Despite the recording conditions Tara and I catch up with Garret and Gordon, we listen to recordings of electronic voice phenomena that I recorded in the last year or two and humorously cope with the blues band that was unexpectedly rehearsing in the room next to us. Don’t worry, The Infinite and the Beyond will be back with its regular show format in the next episode, but until then I hope you enjoy this little treat with the guys from Haunted New Jersey!

The Infinite and the BeyondPodcast: Episode #003 — The Secrets of My Success!

In this episode of The Infinite and the Beyond, we acknowledge the use of glitter in a Midsummer Sabbat and discuss anomalous pets and what to do if you think you have one. As recent experiences have led my to wonder if I truly have a ghost cat in my apartment because up until now I’ve been the only one who has thought to have witnessed the mysterious feline wandering the hall.

We also discuss the benefits of backgrounds and the freedom to wander through your path as paganism is not a set-in-stone faith tradition, but is one which develops through exploration and personal introspection.

We hear what composer Kristian Stout has evolved into as I play the song “Simple Pleasure” performed by his band The Evolutionaries who have previously been featured on such podcasts as Thelema Coast to Coast and the ever popular deo’s Shadow.

I say thank you to Kia Dragon from the podcast Pagan Chaos Magic who had some wonderful things to say about me and the beginning episodes of this podcast. I respond to listener email and have some laughs doing it.

In A Corner in the Occult we learn about famous 19th century French occultist and magickian Eliphas Levi who authored many influential texts on occultism and magick and has inspired such notable individuals in occult history such as Aleister Crowley, Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers, Arthur Edward Waite and even organizations such as The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and the Ordo Templi Orientis.

We begin a new show segment with an introduction to my other favorite text which should occupy nine future episodes as we make our way through the book. And later in the show, we continue with our discussion on community, that we began in Episode #002 – Beyond 93!, by addressing covens.

The Infinite and the BeyondPodcast: Episode #002 — Beyond 93!

In this episode of The Infinite and the Beyond, we talk about seeking community as this seems to be a hot issues right now throughout the Pagan Podcasting community.

We meet a common friend of heavy metal album covers and anti-mason propagandists as we learn about Baphomet in the regular show segment A Corner in the Occult. The most well known image of Baphomet was drawn by 19th century French occultist and magickian Eliphas Levi for his text Transcendental Magic and it is an often misinterpreted image often misconstrued as being a depiction of Pan or the Christian Devil, but in truth the image, symbolism, origins, and history of Baphomet offers so much more to the aspiring student than one can ever realize.

We learn just what I mean when I refer to occultism and the occult as many individuals often misunderstand these terms and in their ignorance over look the greater complexities and contributions that occultism has done for human history and continued human development in this day and age.

And to close I offer some friendly discourse by elaborating on Thelema, its Laws, and how I personally apply them in my daily life as we go beyond 93; all this and more in this thrilling second episode!

The Infinite and the BeyondPodcast: Episode #001 — The Curse of Being Weird

In the introductory episode of The Infinite and the Beyond, we introduce the listener to the show by discussing the show title and direction. As you may be wondering if this is a pagan podcast why does it have such an unusual and generic title and why does the show seem to focus on such a broad scope of issues? Good Point! I address these issues right in the beginning of this episode.

We learn about Aleister Crowley in the regular show segment A Corner in the Occult. Love him or hate him, he is one of the more well known figures from the last one hundred years of occult history. One of the members of the original Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and primary figurehead behind the Ordo Templi Orientis, Aleister Crowley has influenced multiple spiritual, religious, and political movements; inspired a list of characters and films; and has even been the focus of famous song writers, singers, and musicians.

Later we address the issues with being an individual and what to avoid if you happen to be one of the cursed because being vastly different within any community is an extremely difficult thing to handle. Too many people fall in line with the norm and are oblivious to their situation, because to them they’re like everyone else, and if this is the case then what can be wrong with that?

Are you a Pantheist? After all, many pagans consider themselves to be Pantheists. To finish the show we take a look into Pantheism by addressing the tenants of Pantheism as laid down by The World Pantheism Movement and other Pantheist organizations.
