Episode 55

Pop Culture Witchcraft

In this episode of Uncomfortable, I chat with Tarot Reader + Pop Culture Witch Lindsay Braynen. Lindsay educates me on how witchcraft has influenced pop culture and vice versa; how it’s largely a feminist movement and; how colonialism tried to destroy the spiritual practices of black and indigenous cultures.

About Our Guest

Lindsay [she/her] is the Card-Reader + Star-Gazer behind DarkLake Tarot, where she combines her intuition, love of storytelling, and esoteric studies to encourage her clients to ‘Rediscover The Divine On Your Own Terms’ via tarot + astrology readings.  As a pop-culture witch she also alchemizes those studies with her interest in the persevering and transformative powers of Fandom, which she explores in her podcast ‘Hey Magical Girl!’. An immigrant from The Bahamas, Lindsay recognizes that she operates on the stolen territories of Turtle Island known as ‘Vancouver, Canada’, and devotes all her practices to the decolonization and liberation of Black Diasporic + Indigenous Peoples.

Please note that there is some adult language in this episode so pop on those headphones!
