Get ready for a spooky, jam-packed episode of Coffee with Comrades. Bree is back! What’s more, we have our comrade Nestor on the show from Black Banner Magic to talk about witchcraft, the devil’s night, and the secret history of Halloween. But first, some current events:
Nestor from the Black Banner Magic podcast joins us on the show to talk about Halloween’s roots in Gaelic paganism, the rebellious mischief that the holiday foments, the Great Rebellion of Detroit and the ensuing string of Devil’s Night arsons, and American capitalists’ taming of the festivities into a tepid celebration of consumerism and excess. To find out more about the Devil's Night, read this stellar essay on the subject from Mask magazine.
