Connecting the Branches: Kicking off 2021

Connecting the Branches is a podcast that looks at current events through a Kabbalistic lens
Hosts: Irina Xara & Ayamanatara

Episode 1 looks at the forecast and gematria/numerology of 2021, Biden’s inaugural address, social media and Zoom, amongst other things

PARENTAL ADVISORY (which we forgot to say until 24 minutes in, sorry) – We Say Fuck.

This podcast will be heavily informed by a socially progressive lens that incorporates racial justice, intersectional feminisms, gender liberation, disability justice and a variety of other topics. We also wish to specify that our thoughts in this podcast are spiritually informed by Gnosticism, various esoteric practices, ethnic and cultural Jewish identity, as well as various witchcraft traditions and other multidenominational practices. Our lived knowledge of Jewish dogmatic practices and especially schools of thought informed by Chasidic interpretation may be limited.
