Oberon Zell describes himself as a wizard, and this to him means that he is a kind of mentor, teacher, professor. He tells us in this extensive interview about his early childhood, when he thought that everyone had the gifts that he had… Soon he discovered that this was not the case! Throughout his life he got tasks, as he puts it, by Her Majesty’s (the Godess’) Sacred Service, like founding the Church of all Worlds (and along the way defining the Pagan movement), the magazine Green Egg, the Grey School of Wizardry etc. And he tells as in a moving moment also about the very special relationship he as his wife, Morning Glory Zell, shared until her death a few years ago.

Then we will also speak to Damh the Bard, our featured musician of the day – see the music page for more details. The episode ends with a piece of news and a book review.
