The beginning of something new
This is the start of a painting that is very close to my heart. I started this under drawing while I was traveling through the southwest. Are there any places or things that inspire you?

This legendary Italian composer Nino Rota created iconic scores for countless films. This week, you can enjoy some of his greatest – including 8 ½, JULIET OF THE SPIRITS, LA STRADA, and PURPLE NOON – for free on our @hulu channel.

♥ it’s time to spread your podcast pallet ♥ 

Hope you’re all having a wonderful July, everyone! As the heat is cranked up and our thermostats are turned down, it’s time to get comfortable indoors or on the sandy shores of a beach with a new podcast. And my picks are as welcoming as a breeze on a summer day.

Cool down with a touch of horrifying homesickness, served up with just the right amount of creeps and treats to top off your favorite brand of liquor.

Looking for something fresh to please that sudden thirst for audio storytelling? Look no further as PodCake has six more podcasts you’ll certainly love.

1. Friend of the Family

Where the narrator is a character, the two leads hate each other, fighting the supernatural is sometimes disappointingly mundane, talking to family members can be a terrible idea, and a 16-year-old girl is infinitely more exciting about stabbing a lot of things than she is about boys.

If you don’t think podcasts have enough occult hunters, than Friend of the Family would like to welcome you to their reunion. In this audio drama chock full of comebacks and tongues sharper than a wooden stake, we follow our snarky heroine as she battles ghosts, demons, and annoying commentary from narrators and vampires alike.

Friend of the Family is equal parts charming and creepy for fans of both horror and comedy. If your ghost story could use some more more giggles, get comfortable in your coffin and tune in today.

2. Radio People

Under the dome on the far side of the Moon, the people of Clovermeade carry on their strange lives in complete isolation from Earth.

In this bizarrely charming sci-fi story that is…much harder to put into words than I originally thought, we are given a glimpse into the lives of this quirky little moon colony. One word to best describe Radio People would be “alien”. It grants itself an identity unique for itself and only itself, beckoning curious listeners to their strange ads, off-the-wall humor, and alternative-electronica music.

Tune in for yourself to get a taste of this strange yet welcoming collection of distinct voices, songs, and one of a kind atmosphere you’ll find yourself immersed in within seconds.

3. Spirits: A Drunken Dive into Myths and Legends

A boozy biweekly podcast about mythology, legends, and lore. Hear fresh takes on classic myths and learn new stories from a round the world, served up over the ice by two tipsy history geeks.

If you think your LORE could use a little more lady power and a little more liquor, Spirits, is the show for you. Share a drink with our hosts as they slur their way through mystical tales and myths of varying origins.

Fun, funny, and certainly a fresh pick for fans of mythology-this drunken dive into myths and legends will have you asking for a refill.

4. Small Town Horror

A bi-weekly serialized docudrama about one man’s search for answers in his hometown, the site of his own mysterious kidnapping 18 years ago. Are the answers he seeks worth the cost of returning to the place known as Crazytown?

I already knew that Small Town Horror was bound to catch my attention from the get-go. Why it has continued to keep me intrigued is due to a narrative that reads like a thrilling horror novel helped by detailed audio editing and a suspenseful tale of mystery that slowly unfolds itself.

Step into the grim and gritty world of Crazytown and immediately find yourself locked into this macabre story bound to keep you up until the crack of down with shivers down your spine.

5. Uncanny County

Robots gone haywire. Killer clown demons. And pie. So. Much. Pie. This quirky, darkly comic, Southwestern-flavored podcast brings you a new, paranormal audio play every month. Sit back, relax, and hold on tight Because you’re about to take a quick detour….through Uncanny County.

In this episodic freak show of short stories varying from funny to frightening, Uncanny County is sure to have a little something for everyone. Be it robots, mysterious truckers, or hefty servings of blood soaked clowns and delicious pie, you’re sure to find something special with each serving.

There’s nothing uncanny about slipping this series into your feed for a bit of southern styled charm and scares.

6. Return Home

A serialized radio drama that follows the story of Johnathan Barker, who is compelled to return home to Melancholy Falls, NJ to investigate the strange things that have been going on in town and discover his purpose.

Make your return to good old quirky horror shows with Return Home. In this  mysterious little podcast, we are lulled into the rain-drenched tale of a man’s struggles when he comes face to face with the strange happenings of his hometown. 

A little freaky and a little funny with just the right amount of drama, this podcast will give you all the scares and suspense you’re after.

now, get to listening.

Take Time to Nurture Your Soul

There is a lot of craziness going on, comments are flying, people unfriending, unconscious triggers getting stuck in the crossfire. I’m personally avoiding the fb vortex for this reason  but in general, i strongly advise, take time to nurture your soul in this energy. 

There is a lot of hate and judgment being thrown out like candy at a parade. It’s really sad. I have never seen us so divided and polarized. It is an illusion of entropy and resistance build and building.
 Take time to connect back to your own energy. Set up those boundaries. 

Detach, unplug, don’t get stuck in the vortex. Go read a book, do something fun. Take Time to nurture your spirit while the collective flails in chaos. It is crazy. Don’t feed on this energy. 

This is an energy where if we continue to focus on the problems, we create more problems, we continue feeding the fire into a ball of chaos. Let’s focus on the solutions. Be the change. Rise up your energy.  As lightworkers and cosmic warriors, we need to stay strong and raise our vibrations to help be the change! 

How do you help raise your vibrations? 

Staying in a higher emotional place than fear, judgment or anger. 

We are starting to prep for another eclipse season, it’s starting to become obvious to me, that’s why emotions and bio-rhythms are off. Everyone is being triggered by something, you just have to hold strong, let it go. detach. Let it all go.  

Nurture your vibrations, stay positive, express gratitude during this bizarre time and Hold strong. 

love,
Ash
