How did you become a witch? How did you learn about witchcraft? When people find out I’m a professional witch, these are always the first questions I’m asked. And let me tell you, back in my day, esoteric wisdom was not quite as accessible as it is now. You had to go to the library and dust off old tomes, or travel to a faraway shop that sold crystals and tarot decks and a random dragon sculpture. Or maybe you stumbled into an AOL chat group that was more A/S/L than H/C/E (that’s herbs, crystals, and esoteric knowledge, of course).
Luckily, it’s now easier than ever to access other witches’ wisdom, whether that’s through books, social media, or the ~magic~ of podcasts. Yes, there’s a podcast for everything, and that includes witchcraft. In fact, there’s a plethora of magically-infused shows available that explore witchcraft, tarot, paganism, and astrology, as well as niche topics like the business of being a professional witch/healer/spiritual entrepreneur. If you’re learning candle magic or simply marathoning ‘90s witch movies in preparation for Halloween, there’s a podcast that’ll help you tune in while you’re jogging, cooking, or pretending to tune into a Zoom meetings.
Whether you’re a baby witch, a seasoned pro, or just someone who is seeking a little more magic in their life, here are some of my fave magical podcasts so you can celebrate the Season of the Witch all year long.
The Witch Wave
Tune in for “bewitching conversation about magic, creativity, and culture.” Pam Grossman has been called “the Terry Gross of witches” for a good reason: Her interviews with guests flow easily and give a glimpse into the lives of the best creative magic makers.
What’s Your Sign?
What's Your Sign? is billed as as “a comedy podcast for astrology lovers AND haters,” and hosts Stevie Anderson, Julia Loken, and Lisa Chanoux clearly know their cosmic stuff—plus, they have great chemistry. I'm always learning new info to apply to my birth chart AND cracking up when I listen to this show.
In this latest episode of the podcast I talk about palmistry, magical jewellery and body art, and medical astrology! You can find it on Spotify, Podbean, iTunes and anywhere else you listen to podcasts! ✋🧿🧿✨ . . #witchesofinstagram #witch #palmistry #palmreading #witchcraft #consciousink #sacredbodyart #astrology #medicalastrology #podcasts #witchpodcast #thefatfeministwitch

The Fat Feminist Witch
This is podcast for, as host Paige put sit, “ranting, raving, and wand waving.” I love how she looks at witchcraft and paganism through a modern, feminist perspective.
Between the Worlds
Give this show a listen for tarot, psychology, mythology, pop culture, witchcraft, magic, art, and history with host Amanda Yates Garcia, aka the Oracle of Los Angeles. She insightfully breaks down the tarot cards and asks guests for their interpretations, too.
Two smart and savvy witches, Chelsea Selby and Juliet Diaz, dissect the history, magical properties, and science behind a new plant every week. Listening will turn you into a Green Witch (that's a witch who's especially in tune with nature, FYI).
In case you needed a reminder, we're the Lil Black Witch! Created by two Black Women who wanted to show the spiritual world that, "Yes, we exist!" We cover almost every esoteric topic with a laid back, relatable, and often funny spin. We're here to help new and baby witches explore and find their path through exposure and knowledge. It's so important to us that every person feels seen, represented, and most of all respected. We are a podcast for you! All you need is some tea or a joint (or both!), and an eagerness to burst out laughing and learn some new. 🎨: @tinkalila 👸🏾: @acleverlilwitch 👸🏾: @praxie_osong #witchwithme #witchwithpodcasts ✨Day 1 @witch.with.podcasts Challenge✨

Lil' Black Witch
Creating a safe space for listeners, hosts Joi and Praxie are here to educate, inspire, and lift you up through literal magic. I particularly enjoyed a recent episode all about successful spells.
This just-launched podcast for the modern witch and magical critical thinker is hosted by Sarah Faith Gottesdiener. I'm expecting a major dive into the magic of the moon’s cycle, since Sarah is also the creator of the innovative Many Moons Lunar Planner.
The Queer Witch
The Queer Witch, hosted by Anna Joy, explores the intersection between magical and LGBTQ+ identities. Every episode feels welcome, inclusive, and empowering.
How to Survive the End of the World
Hosted by sisters Autumn Brown and adrienne maree brown, this show is all about magical survival techniques and community-building. I always leave an episode feeling empowered and politically activated...and that's what being a modern witch is all about!
Combining spirituality and comedy, Basic Witches is hosted by comedians Leah Knauer and Rachel Laforest. They interview comedians, musicians, artists, and fellow witches about the magic of life, manifestation, and sexuality. It's perfect for when you need some laughter with your witchcraft.
Host Theresa Reed is an OG tarot aficionado who provides a valuable mini tarot lesson in each episode. This show is perfect for tarot beginners, but even seasoned readers could learn a new perspective.
So You Wanna Be A Witch?
In this podcast for soul-centered entrepreneurs, host Sarah M. Chappell gives an inside look at the business of being a witch.
Rise Up! Good Witch
Rise Up! Good Witch believes that "self care is magic, resistance is power." Host Corinna Rosella interviews healers and activists about how they use tarot, herbalism, planetary transits, and self-care to foster resilience.
The Glitter Cast
Professional psychic Renee Watt's show features celebrity ghost stories and famous interviewees along with discussions of astrology—the first guest is the one and only Elvira!
Host Natalie Ross gives Earth Speak a chill vibe as she chats with guests about working with spirits, connecting with nature, and self-care.
Medium Devin Hunter highlights ancient wisdom through a modern lens, featuring interviews with magical pros and deep-dives into mysticism.
Designed for beginner witches, Seeking Witchcraft teaches the basics of witchcraft and Wicca in 30-minute episodes. Think of host Ashley's lessons as a little witchy snack before you dive into the full magical meal.
