Episode 3.05 (no. 49)

3 June 2013

Sample this! A second bite and nibble of the Northwest Astrological Conference (NORWAC 2013). We are also serving a wonderful summer read on Astrological Aspirations, with a cocktail of comedy and dedication with Peter Gabriel in Stumptown Singer Selection, and decadent dessert of events and special offer in Cascadia Corkboard. This episode features short interviews asking "what in your chart makes you an astrologer?" with Rhea Wolf, Glenna Bain, Lauren Sage Balin, Emily Trinkaus & Rick Schmidt, Jeff Jawer and the lovely Patricia Walsh. *Due to technical problems, this episode is shorter in segments and may need volume adjusting while listening. Sorry I will try to resolve this for the next episode.
