¶ Peter Grey and Alkistis Dimech of Scarlet Imprint join Gordon White for the first birthday of the Rune Soup podcast. We discuss magic and spirit contact in the wild, breaking bread with friends, the highlights of 2016 and trends in the magical discourse as we all look forward to 2017. Kudos to Gordon White for a successful first year of podcasting in difficult circumstances. Rune Soup has become the pre-eminent magical podcast due to his consistent hard work, incisive intelligence and warm conversational skills with a wide variety of guests. We wish him continued success.
