PWN #104: 2 Years Running

For two years RevKess and Zaracon have presented the Pagan Weekly News. In the 104th edition of that show they were joined by Rev. Peter Dybing, Deirdre Heber of PaganFM, and Amber Roth of Pagan Centered Podcast.

Peter Dybing is an activist and works closely with the Lady Liberty League. He recently met with Christian ministers in the Lake Okochobee area of Florida to show them that Pagans are not bad people and persuade them not to stage protests during the first Lake Okochobee Pagan Summer Solstice Festival. He is also a disaster relief specialist who has been on the ground in Haiti and all around the United States after numerous natural disasters. You can read some of his thoughts on activist issues at his personal blog Pagan In Paradise.

Deirdre Hebert is the host of PaganFM out of Portsmouth, NH. PaganFM has been on for seven years and ranks as the second longest Pagan content terrestrial radio broadcast in the world. Deirdre has also been a guest co-host on the Pagan Weekly News.

Amber Roth (aka Amber Rose) is one of the cast of hosts from Pagan Centered Podcast, currently out of production. She works with the Native American community on the East Coast. Amber has also been a guest co-host on the Pagan Weekly News.

Unlike the usual format for PWN, this edition was a free flowing discussion with minimal guidance from RevKess and Zaracon. Topics discussed included:

  • Activism
  • Pagan Media
  • Taboo issues in the Pagan community
  • The internet and Paganism
  • Use of “little p” and “big P” Pagan in mainstream media

Other topics were touched upon, including the recent shut down Pagan Radio Network and the future of Paganism.
