great list, thanks.

love Judika Illes, i have one of her books and it's my go to for spells. [i just wish her encyclopedia of spells wasn't so expensive, and i wasn't so cheap. but i'll break down a buy a copy one day] the Farrar's also have two books i'd recommend, the witches god and the witches goddess [only read the god, but it was really good, and i've heard great things about both books]

thanks for the youtube links. Ember HoneyRaven is one of my favourite witches on youtube [just sad she had to take down a lot of her old content, i would spend my days off playing them all as i did chores, read, and basically relaxed] totally checking out the others you mentioned. personally, i always give a shout out to TipToeChick, she was the first youtuber i saw. there's also TheLadyGraveDancer i really enjoy, and Joanna Devoue [aka Hippie Witch] she has a podcast i found February of this year and fell in love with it. she's got a youtube channel as well as a free ebook, but she's less about teaching, more helpful tips and chatting. lastly, a brand new one my friend introduced me in in late September is Harmony Nice, she has some witchy chats, but she's also into a few other things [suggestion for people looking for pagan people online to watch more than anything]

if anyone knows of any good podcasts to listen to i would love to hear about it, i've gotten into podcasts this year and i've finished all mine and need new ones.
