This week, Aradia & Liz are inspired by recent Discord discussions to talk about the gods: how to start a relationship with one, how to not piss them off, the difference between Hermes’ rod and Apollo’s – you know, the important stuff.
We also announced our VERY FIRST GIVEAWAY and we’re really freaking excited about it, so if you want a chance to win some cool witchy swag, check out www.twobytorchlight.com/lucky13giveaway for all the details.

The books we mentioned:
A Book of Pagan Prayer by Ceisiwr Serith

The Hermes Thing:
Hermes’ symbol vs the symbol for medicine: the Caduceus is Hermes’ symbol, a staff entwined by two serpents. The Rod of Asclepius is the symbol used in modern medicine, wielded by the Greek god Asclepius, god of medicine and healing, and sometimes used in association with Apollo, the father of Asclepius and another god of healing.
