Kevin Walder Artist, writer, podcaster, and student of Tarot, lives with his husband, in Northwest Washington State. Kevin continues to expand his knowledge and understanding of Tarot and other spiritual subjects guided by a general knowledge of the cards, while allowing intuition to deliver personal messages..
I once taught a daytime Tarot class that seemed to turn into a lunch hour diversion for several of my students. In the process of preparing for this class I drew on my years of research and study of the Tarot and began to develop some interesting ways to explain the meanings of the cards. I am always more intrigued by the process of forming the right question than the relentless search for answers. It is with this inquisitive nature that I approached teaching The Tarot. So grab your favorite deck and bring your best questions and be prepared to question everything as we explore The Tarot, it’s what’s for lunch.
This book is a personal visit with each of the 22 Major Arcana cards The Tarot. The energy and personality of each card comes through as a healing energy and a guide to every aspect of life. 22 Teachers – Healing Lessons From The Major Arcana is a guide to understanding and getting the greatest benefit from your favorite Tarot deck.

Todd’s Bio: Chances are you’ll find him in a mysterious abandoned home, walls yellowed by age and doors teetering precariously on their hinges. Maybe a murder occurred or perhaps a fire. Whatever the case, Todd Bates is on the scene for a singular task: listening for voices of the dead.
Electronic Voice Phenomenon (commonly referred to as “EVP”) is spirit voices captured on a digital or analog recording device that were not heard with the naked ear at the time of their recording. For Todd, collecting this specialized evidence of paranormal origin is a life calling. After years of personally investigating the mysteries of EVP and studying under a pioneering figure in the field, Sarah Estep, he took his passion to the Internet. Now in its 13th year, HauntedVoices.com has quickly grown to be one of the most successful Electronic Voice Phenomenon-based websites on the Internet dedicated to research, education and discussion. The site is also the home to the Haunted Voices Radio. The network of live & archived programs provide audio material 24 hours a day and Todd acts as program director and its flagship talk show host. Todd has collected some of the most impressive examples of the phenomenon available today and currently teaches his capturing techniques and paranormal investigation protocol via private and on-air lessons.
Todd Bates in the Media Due to Todd Bates’ research and high profile presence as a radio talk show host, he has evolved into one of very few EVP authorities and is in demand to provides advice, education, and EVP analysis to paranormal investigation groups worldwide. The media community has taken notice, too. With paranormal subject matter finding a regular home in mainstream media, experts such as Todd Bates are in high demand. Todd has made several radio, TV, and public appearances to both share his knowledge and create guidelines for demonstrating EVP.
Television: Adviser for “A Haunting” on the Discovery Channel (“Sallies House” episode); WTHI TV (CBS affiliate) “The Ashmore Experiment” 2 day event. Appeared on WTWO (NBC Affiliate).
Radio: Before founding his own radio network, Todd’s radio hosting career began with Dr. Ed Craft of Magick Mind Radio (An IBC Network Program). He was offered a co-host spot with Dr. Jimmy Lowery of “Alabama Para Spiritual Radio” (APSR Radio) and was then given the opportunity to host his own live show on the BBS Radio Network where he discussed all topics paranormal. He has since guessed on The Man Cow Show, WTAY FM, WTYE AM Crawford County, IL, WZPL 99.5 Indianapolis, IN, X-zone Radio, Voice of America, and The Jeff Rense Show.
Each has been a valuable experience to share his vast knowledge of EVP. Todd is a graduate of the American Broadcasting School, where he specialized in voice-overs, and radio broadcasting. Todd is currently working on his BA in Mass Communications at Ashford University and General Manager of WGOG Digital Broadcasting in Clearwater, FL Public Speaking: Because of his specialty within the paranormal community, Todd is an in-demand speaker at conferences and conventions nationwide including a yearly showing at GhostFest Expo, held on the infamously haunted RMS Queen Mary historic ship. Software Development: Once only a beta tester for Adobe Systems (maker of Photoshop), he has been tapped to assist in creating features that will specifically aid Electronic Voice Phenomenon research in future revisions to its industry standard audio editing program, Audition.

About Lucy Cavendish
My name is Lucy Cavendish and I’m an author and Witch. Or, an Author and witch… I love nature, the ocean, animals and people, in an everchanging and jumbled order, and I love exploring ancient places all over this amazing world, stargazing, developing new ways to do traditional Witchcraft, day-and-night dreaming, catching waves, finding very old trees to chat to and meeting lovely people and sharing cups of Lady Grey tea with good friends. I adore books, open fireplaces, the ocean, magick, kindness, laughter, beauty and creativity, and yes, my family and friends.
I live in a few places at once, most of the time – mostly between the far, far, far south coast of NSW and far far northern NSW with a menagerie made up of my artist son who is changing the world, an environmental builder who I adore, red and black dogs, herb gardens, surfboards and way too many books and crystals and special thingies I’ve collected from all around the world. I practise magick, surf and write (nearly) every day.
Lucy Cavendish’s compassionate blessings bring hope, inspiration, understanding, and encouragement. Most of all, they offer a deep sense of belonging, the comfort of being seen, the reminder that you are a cherished and most precious being. For every one of life’s gateways, for all the joyful moments, and the challenges, there is a blessing to ignite your soul’s luminous, loving light once again.

Show’s Audio Recording:
About Pete Orbea
Pete Orbea works in the historic town of Port Gamble. He leads ghost walks and special investigations and coordinates the Port Gamble Ghost Conference. This has provided the opportunity to develop his skills for communicating with spirits and investigating the paranormal.
Pete became interested in the paranormal when he was 7 after witnessing two Native American warriors appear and vanish while on a road trip in northern Arizona. His interest piqued again during college while working at the Egyptian Theater in Boise, ID, a hotspot for paranormal activity.
While living in Port Gamble and getting to know others with similar interests, Pete felt at home in the haunted historic town. After joining the Olympic Peninsula Paranormal Society in 2013, he started to realize that he could speak with spirits.
He’s also very proud to be a member of the Extended Research Team of PRI (Paranormal Research & Investigations) as a Researcher/Investigator. Currently, Pete helps people through psychic readings and investigations in Kitsap County.

We will be speaking with the Wise and Irreverent Rune Woman, Ingrid Kincaid! The discussion will include Ingrid’s recently released book ‘Lost Teachings of the Runes: Northern Mysteries and the Wheel of Life’, and then see what other mischief we can get up to!
Tune in on Wednesday, October 9th at 10 PM E/9 PM C!
About Ingrid Kincaid
Known as the Rune Woman, Ingrid Kincaid is a born storyteller whose style of writing is a mixture of poetry and prose that is fueled by curiosity, sourced in wisdom and irreverence and woven around questions that beg to be answered. Ingrid lives life as an adventure. Her travels are both imaginary and real. She is an educator and workshop facilitator with over 40 years of experience. In addition to runes and Northern mysteries, she teaches courses in women’s wisdom and creativity, traveling throughout the United States and Europe.
Lost Teachings of the Runes: Northern Mysteries and the Wheel of Life
Lost Teachings of the Runes is an unexpected adventure into the hidden meanings and profound lessons held in these simple markings that are the signatures of ancient beings.
Lost Teachings of the Runes invites the reader to journey to the realms of past and future that exist hidden beyond the horizon and beneath our feet. Using an engaging blend of stories, meditations, and ancestral knowing, author Ingrid Kincaid explores Northern Mysteries from the center of the Wheel of Life. Kincaid demonstrates ways the Wheel can be used to connect ancient wisdom with modern life, and offers tools and teachings that may be used on a daily basis to enable readers to reclaim their personal power.
Lost Teachings of the Runes presents a life-affirming, death-honoring approach that returns the runes to a place of balance, to light and dark, to order and chaos, and to the roots and branches of the world tree.
For this segment, Wendy will be talking with good friends, Denise Pridemore and Jen Smith, both of who have Appalachian family with strong leanings towards Folk Magics, Healing, and Lore. I’ve been doing my homework as well, so this should be an enlightening show!
Now, I’m no expert in any of these things, but I know what I enjoy. Research and Learning are at the top of my list. I will be delving into one aspect of Magic, Witchcraft, Folklore, Myth and/or Legend in each article.
So, if you are so inclined, join me on this journey of discovery!
The people who have called The Appalachian Mountains their home over the centuries and beyond are a mish-mash of the Native American Indian tribes – Shawnee, Cherokee, Creek and Delaware, just to name a few. Added in later were settlers from Ireland, Scotland, Germany, and more. When you mix in all of these different peoples. cultures and traditions – not to mention adding in ancient lore of the people brought in as Slaves – and blood, sweat, tears and deaths of those just trying to carve out a little niche in the world, you come up with the recipe for some powerful beliefs, magics, healing practices and downright scary – sometimes – ‘wise ones’..
I’ve run across the term ‘Granny Magic’ in several different articles and websites, and really get a kick out of the term. However, I feel it’s not really accurate since gender isn’t really the heart of the practitioners these days. But the traditions are definitely passed down from great-grandparents, grandparents, and on down the line. The Ancients and Ancestors are key elements of the rootwork, healings, conjurings and so on.
Anyway, this should be a very interesting and informative segment, so please join us!
