My guest today is Dr. Angela Puca who’s research focuses on magic, witchcraft, Paganism, esotericism, shamanism, and related currents. Angela holds a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Philosophy and has lectured at Leeds Trinity University for several years. In 2021, The University of Leeds awarded her a PhD in Anthropology of Religion, which will be published in the upcoming year. Author of several peer-reviewed publications and co-editor of the forthcoming ‘Pagan religions in five minutes’ for Equinox, she hopes to bridge the gap between academia and the communities of magic practitioners by delivering related scholarly content on her YouTube Channel and TikTok ‘Angela’s Symposium.’ I truly enjoyed my conversation with Angela and I hope you do as well.
In our conversation, we discussed Eastern and Western ways of approaching religion and their main differences, searching for meaning as a basic human need, magic, finding meaning and establishing a sense of connection to a whole, monotheistic and polytheistic religions and how they relate with the concept of truth, and the importance of separating valid personal experiences from historical proven facts.
