Who Were the Witches: A Halloween Special

Halloween is more than trick-or-treating and jack o'lanterns.  Every year at Halloween, thousands gather in Kezar Pavilion to celebrate the Samhain, or Witches' New Year, in a huge ritual known as the Spiral Dance.

Today Kate Raphael spends the hour with Starhawk, best-selling author of The Spiral Dance, The Fifth Sacred Thing and The Last Wild Witch.  They talk about the origins and history of the new feminist religious tradition known as neopaganism.  Starhawk also talks about her work doing Earth Activist Trainings, anti-capitalist organizing and her evolution as a supporter of Palestininian liberation.

Listen to the full show.

Watch the Spiral Dance video.
