Welcome to Weird Web Radio!
It's a brand new season! Welcome to Season 4!
Our first guest this season is also our first repeat guest. Say hello again to John Beckett! John was a guest in season 1 before I started asking occult and pagan guests about the paranormal. He was even here an episode before I started the bonis extended interviews so this was his first time on the merry go round of morbid curiousity!
We dig deep into the harder questions of religion and Paganism. We deal with atheist agendas, and yeah, we get into ghosts and folklore too! This one is a closer look into his book Paganism In Depth.
Some changes this season include discussion of the guests favorite local folklore in the show rather than the bonus section. I added some new more in depth personal questions to the bonus section as well to see how guests deal with failure and success alike.
John Beckett grew up in Tennessee with the woods right outside his back door. Wandering through them gave him a sense of connection to Nature and to a certain Forest God. John is a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, a member of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF), a member of the Denton Covenant of Unitarian Universalist Pagans, and a former Vice President of CUUPS Continental. His blog “Under the Ancient Oaks” is part of the Pagan Channel of the multifaith website Patheos. John has been writing, speaking, teaching, and leading public rituals since 2003. His books The Path of Paganism (2017) and Paganism In Depth (2019) are published by Llewellyn Worldwide. John lives in the Dallas – Fort Worth area and earns his keep as an engineer.
