A reader asked me in email what shows on hoodoo do I recommend people listen to. Well, this is just my opinion and you can take it or toss it as you seem fit.
I've scoured the Internet in search of good shows. I have found only two shows that are worth the time to listen to. Those shows are:
Old Style Conjure Blogtalk Radio Show
Papa Ce Blogtalk Radio Show
The rest are utter bull shit. Repeat the rest are utter bull shit. Do you know that a couple of days ago I decided to go ahead and listen to a hoodoo radio show and was shocked to learn that the first 45 minutes of the show was nothing but ego stroking and advertising. By advertising I'm not talking about commercials. Instead, I'm talking about bull shit self promotion that crosses the line. Sure, people should be able to self promote but there has to be a balance. Get your self promotion out of the way at the beginning of the show and then dedicate the show to the work or topic at hand.
Why I do not recommend any other shows:
1.) The meat of the show is ego-stroking and self-promotion.
2.) What is presented is not actual hoodoo. Most of what is being presented on the shows is witchcraft that the host is claiming to be hoodoo. Big Hint: If the host is not telling people to work with the bible then it's witchcraft, not hoodoo.
3.) Shows run by Wiccans, witches, and people from other traditions who claim to practice hoodoo but are not traditional workers. If you want to learn hoodoo you go to a worker, not a Wiccan, Witch, etc.
4.) The hosts spend far too much time gabbing and laughing about their personal lives instead of talking about the work.
5.) The show only serves as a money-making or fame vehicle for the host.
6.) The show is a flash in a pan. The majority of the shows on hoodoo last for a few shows and then cut off. They stop because all the hosts do is sit around and gab and laugh about their personal lives or they only do a show in order to self-promote. So if they don't have something to self-promote then there won't be a show.
7.) Fraud (I can't get into it here but I got some dirt on some people!)
8.) Fake Readings (Ditto as above)
9.) The advice given is to purchase their goods/services.
10.) Bad advice given.
So there you have it. It's my blog. I'll write what I want to write and unlike other people, I don't kiss any other "workers" (used loosely as most of them aren't traditional conjure workers) ass.
Note: Just because I recommend these shows doesn't mean that I agree with everything the hosts say or do. My recommendation only means that the show is good and has good content and does not have the problems that plague all the other shows. Momma Starr & Dr. Lovebug give out tons of real work, unlike the bull shit witchcraft given out on other shows. Papa Ce is not afraid of talking about aspects of the tradition that the big names online don't want you to know about.
