A week after Heartland and KailSara and RevKess were still “hung over” from all the energy and fun they had. Their show on the 1st talked about some of their experiences and the workshops they attended. A large focus was placed on Tuatha Dea, the headline musicians for the event. A fabulous concert indeed.
Early in the show they spoke briefly with Julian Marcus, the host of “Home of the Ancestors“. HotA premiers this Wednesday, the 5th of June, at 7pm PDT/9pm CDT. This program will talk about ancestral traditions from around the world. From ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt to the Celts of Europe, Asian traditions, African religions and aboriginal traditions from around the globe.
Returning to the show schedule on PMPChannel is the reboot of Musica Pagani, a Pagan and New Age music program hosted by RevKess. This program will once again feature music that is sent to us by the musicians themselves as well as the music from other artists that have granted us their permission to share their wonderful art with our listeners.
The 95th edition the Pagan Weekly News found RevKess still wore out from Heartland and Zaracon recovering froma fall over the weekend. Though Z was unable to be on the air through the whole show, RevKess persevered and filled a good hour and forty-five minutes the show with news and information from, by and about the Pagan community. Below you will find links to many of the articles that were discussed as well further informaiton on those topics. You will also find a play list of the music and links to the artist’s pages.
As always, the hosts of the Pagan Weekly News invite the listener to share their thoughts and impressions on the content of the show. Suggestions for stories to cover are also welcome. You can email the hosts at email@example.com or message them through the Facebook page.
Blessings to you all and thank you for listening to another edition of the Pagan Weekly News!

Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone: Janet Farrar is probably one of the best known names in witchcraft, especially when addressing witchcraft in the UK. She and her first husband, Stewart, wrote many books that are still be referenced today by Elders and novices alike. Gavin Bone, Janet’s second husband (hand picked by Stewart and the Goddess Freya), has over two decades of experience in witchcraft and other forms of mysticism. Together they present workshops, classes, and write. At Heartland they present workshops on energy work and a look at the evolution of wtichcraft in the 21st century.
Ed “the Pagan” Hubbard: Is the former CEO of Witch School International, recently retired First Elder of the Correllian Nativist Tradition and the CEO of Paganics. Most of us at PMPChannel know him as one of the hosts of Pagans Tonight, a nightly Pagan podcast on BlogTalkRadio. This was our second time seeing Ed at Heartland. Always a good time to sit and visit with him. Ed did several worshops on Pagan Leadership: How Pagan Are You?, The Path to Pagan Prosperity, Growing a Pagan Village, Pagan Leadership Training Raw and Conquering Your World.
Mike Nichols is the author The Witches’ Sabbats. He is an author, musician and former radio personality in the KC area. Mike’s worshop was called Wicca’s Blackcloth: The Occult in American History. In this workshop he covered the early influences on occultism in the Americas and how those influences helped shape modern Wicca, at least from an American perspective.
Tuatha Dea: Not only did this fabulous Pagan/Blues/Country/Folk band perform for the main concert of the weekend, but they taught a couple of worshops. Both aimed at the younger members of the Pagan community. Teen Team Building for Unity was an interactive rhythm event structured around the use of rhythm as a developmental tool and catalyst for building community through the power of the drum. Child’s Play introduced the truly young (and young at heart) to the basics of drumming for music and ritual use.
other honored guests and musicians:
Brian Henke, musician
Joshua Messick, hammered dulcimer
The Vine Brothers, featuring Joe Credit, Jr
Viridis, featuring Beltana Spellsinger
Finally, but no least: Food in the dining hall was prepared by Food on Wheels from Minnesota. Fabulous food. The chili feed Thursday night was provided free of charge to all attendees and was delicious. Their breakfast buffet was scrumptuous. We provided the rest of our own meals, so we cannot speak to their lunch and dinner menu. After tasting what they had to offer we wish we had purchased the meal plan. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to find a web address for these wonderful cooks and their kitchen crew.

Every week they strive to bring you the news from a Pagan perspective as well as talk about current issues in the global Pagan community. Often times you will hear one or both of them get up on their soap box on an issue, which you heard in this edition. You will also find them having fun, after all, if you are not having fun you are doing it wrong!
RevKess and Zaracon would like to take a moment hear to pay respect to those who have lost their lives during the tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma earlier this week. They are our in the hearts, thoughts, and prayers of many people across the United States and around the world. PMPChannel guest and musician, George Nicholas of Cernunnos Rising made a post to the official Facebook feed for Cernunnos Rising letting his fans know that the good people of Oklahoma are indeed in his thoughts and prayers. Faith Hamilton, a regular listener and sometimes guest on PMPChannel, a resident of Kentucky, has been keeping her FB peeps up to date on what is going on in her area as well as in the OKC area. To all the first responders, rescue personnel and everyone else who is working so very hard to make this tragedy easier for those who have suffered a loss of home, loved one, or propery: May the Gods bless you, each and everyone! You are truly heroes!
