The Traditional Astrology Radio Podcast
One of the up-and-coming trends in the astrological community right now is podcasts and astrologically themed internet radio shows, and at this point my favorite is Traditional Astrology Radio.
I began listening to it earlier this year when the original host David Hernández, who is a Medieval astrologer from Puerto Rico, starting featuring interesting interviews with prominent astrologers such as Benjamin Dykes and Robert Schmidt.
Traditional Astrology Radio is typically an hour long show that is streamed live over the internet, and after it is over you can download a full MP3 of the show for free if you missed it or if you just want to listen to it again later.
In September an astrologer named Jacqui Menkes, a graduate of Kepler College, took over the radio show from David, and she has continued and even expanded his practice of conducting interesting interviews with prominent astrologers during each show.
I’m excited about Jacqui’s upcoming lineup of interviews over the course of the next month, which will feature astrologers such as Bruce Scofield, Maria Mateus, and Robert Corre. You can also go back in the archives and listen to or download past interviews by David and Jacqui with Ben Dykes, Robert Schmidt, Lee Lehman, Christopher Warnock and a number of others.
I did an interview with Jacqui last month on the subject of Hellenistic astrology, and you can listen to the entire podcast online or download it as an MP3 here. I was sick with the flu at the time, so it wasn’t the best interview that I’ve ever given, but it is still worth listening to.
As I said in the interview, I think that Jacqui is doing a great job after having taken over from David, despite having some pretty big shoes to fill. I think that her background as a Kepler student gives her a broad perspective that will make the show interesting and thought-provoking for a long time to come.
Update (12/27/11): I took over the show from Jacqui in November 2010, and I moved it from BlogTalkRadio to its own website at TraditionalAstrologyRadio.com
