to pagan supermoot or not to pagan supermoot

I'm a baby podkiner but I was invited to join this year's Pagan Supermoot in Salem, MA and I'm debating whether or not I should go. I mean really, I'm not a big podcaster. I put out a show about once a month and am still working on finding my podcasting voice (and the time to podcast). And going would require me to break the imaginary 4th wall (theatre term) and I need to decide whether or not I'm comfortable doing so.

But I am intrigued.

I mean, it's Salem. I've never been to Salem. And even though I don't buy into the witchy history of Salem (mass hysteria, neighbour basing = yes, actual witches = no), it would be fun to go visit a town that turns witchiness into a tourist attraction! Don't you agree?

And then there'd be the chance to ACTUALLY meet the other podkin out there, pick their brains and get to know what they're really like, you know? That's kind of intriguing. And I've been listening to their shows for a while now (they inspired my desire to podcast), so it'd be nice to actually have conversations (in person and not just answering back in the car by myself...)!

And by September, if I manage to make the show sustainable, I should have put out about 7-9 shows... that should give me enough street cred, shouldn't it?



  1. We're hitting Salem during our vacation up the the East Coast this Summer. I'm excited to go. Just do it : )

  2. I am originally from Massachusetts and have been to Salem many times. I never tire of it. It's very fun and there are so MANY pagan shops! Last time I was there I went to the Lizzy Borden museum (she lived in Fall River MA, not Salem) and I was surprised how interesting that was, so you might want to check that out too! Lizzy Borden's house in Fall River, by the way, is now a B & B - ok, that's just creepy.

    Anyway, as someone who likes to stay in the broom closet I understand your hesitation, but there's more of a chance it will be a good experience and at the very least a fun destination!

  3. Go go go! It sounds like so much fun!

  4. I'm leaning towards yes. And Aine, thanks for the museum suggestion... sounds intriguing. But not for an overnight stay!

  5. I think you should go and pick Fire Lyte's brain. That guy's a pretentious ass! You should really get after him! LOL


  6. @FL: that's true, I have heard that about him... mostly from him but still, that counts!
