Magick is pretend... and pretending is powerful! On the Placebo Magick Podcast we explore how and why to cast spells, perform rituals, read Tarot cards, commune with fictional beings, and delve into ancient or pop culture mythologies to gain real psychological benefits and treat modern problems... all while remaining grounded in a science-based skeptical atheist worldview.
