Witchcraft and Paganism, Part 2

Following on from last week’s episode, in which Kirsty led Stella and Dan on a dive into witchcraft through history, reality and fiction, she’s now widening her scope to include other types of paganism.  If you only know paganism through what you’ve seen in horror films, there’ll be a lot to learn here – but this discussion also takes time to go in-depth on two of cinema’s most notable pagan horrors, Ari Aster’s Midsommar (2019) and Robin Hardy’s The Wicker Man (1973).  It’s another bumper-length episode and, hopefully, a fascinating chat.
