Bat Collazo joins me to discuss the release on April 1st of Blood Unbound: A Loki Devotional by The Troth publications.  Blood Unbound is a collaboration of poetry, rituals, stories, plays, art, and comics submitted by many contributors and edited by Bat. 

We talk about why the book is important today, how it came into being, and about Loki himself. 

Bat and Luke Babb were on the podcast last year to talk about how Loki interacts with people today in episode 33.

The book can be ordered in paperback, hard cover, and pdf from The Troth's Lulu Page and online sellers. 

Bat can be found at batcollazo.com or on Instagram @batcollazo

The Troth is an international Inclusive Heathen organization based in the United States.  Trothmoot (mentioned in the podcast) is the organizations annual conference/meeting. 

The cover artist is Sae Lokason. If you like it and want to see more: http://etsy.com/shop/Lokason

Welcome to Gifts of the Wyrd, a podcast for and about inclusive Heathenry. 

This episode, my guests are Bat Collazo and Luke Babb to talk about - Loki and his family. Loki is a being of the Heathen/Norse practices who is often regarded as the trickster god not to be trusted, blamed for the end of of the world (Ragnarok), and should certainly not be honored or a part of any practice today.  

In this episode, we will not discuss the various myths and lore (you can look those up yourself in the Prose and Poetic Eddas or other Norse mythology collections) nor will we discuss whether one should or should not honor or worship Loki or any of his kin.  

We talk about our experiences and observations of others with them in the community.  

Bat is a queer Heathen of color, writer, crafter, and artist who is also heading up the Troth's upcoming Loki devotional (fall 2020) from Lulu.com. Follow Bat on Instagram at @batcollazo and on her blog, Batbruja

Luke is an eclectic polytheist and member of the Troth. They are also a member of the Fellowship of the Phoenix (a pagan order focused on queer experiences) and a columnist for The Wild Hut
