Episode 8 “Hellenic Hearth Culture/Interview with Missy”
This month Arin and Jonathan invite members of the ADF Hellenic kin “Oi Asproi Koukouvayies: White Owl Kin” to join them on the podcast. They are joined by Reverend Rob Henderson current “Basileus” (Chief) of the Kin, “Thexalon” Dave Kleinschmidt “Polemarkhos” (Secretary) of the Kin, and Diane “Emerald” Bronowicz Egelhoff, former Basileus of the Kin. We talk about some basic Hellenic information with them, what a Hellenic ritual brings that is different from some other hearth cultures, the importance of Hestia, and and what a Greek Symposium really was, among plenty of other topics.
Our Deity of the episode today was Hestia, goddess of the hearth fire, who was invoked first and last at every Hellenic ritual. Find out more about Hestia here
Our music this month is: Damh the Bard, playing “Pagan Ways”
