Most pagans don’t know the name Edmund “Eddie” Buczynski (aka Minos Gwydion-Hyakinthos), but they should. In the span of only a few years in the 1970s, Eddie established three living traditions of modern neopaganism—the New York Welsh Tradition, the Wica Tradition, and the Minoan Tradition, which includes the Minoan Brotherhood, Minoan Sisterhood, and the Cult of Rhea, or the Cult of the Double Axe. This founding elder stood at the convergence of the hippy culture, gay liberation movement, and the rise of neopaganism in New York City, and took aspects of each to create unique and important contributions to neopagan religion and culture.

Bull of Heaven by Michael Lloyd

In this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass, Luckylicious interviews special guest Michael G. Lloyd (aka Garan Du), a Minoan high priest, co-founder of the Between the Worlds men’s gathering, and author of Bull of Heaven: The Mythic Life of Eddie Buczynski and the Rise of the New York Pagan, a book that some consider the sequel to Margot Adler's seminal history on neopaganism, Drawing Down the Moon (Ms. Adler provides the foreword to Bull of Heaven). As Michael shares in this episode, researching Eddie’s life and its impact on neopaganism was a labor of love that put him in touch with many of our community’s most respected and well-known leaders. As a spiritual descendant of Eddie’s work, Michael hopes that through this book more neopagans will become familiar with Eddie, a man he calls “the Gerald Gardner of the gay pagan community.”

Carmen drops a bomb on Eat My Pagan Ass in this episode!!  She's leaving the show to travel the world with some crazy band of "famous" pagans (she won't say who) doing miracles in places of need.  It's all very mysterious, and Lucky wonders if Grannylicious has anything to do with it.  Speaking of Grannylicious, EMPA fan Fire Lyte reveals a tasty tidbit of gossip -- tho we'll save most of his story for another podcast.  Lucky is distraught about what's to come...or is he?  Maybe he planned this all along.  Maybe Carmen was just getting in the way of his glory.  In the meantime, we dish about fallen fashion icon John Galliano and his wicked Nazi ways. (Shame on you, buttercup! Lay off the sauce, sober up, own up, and move on! -- Take it from Lucky, who celebrates three years of sobriety this week!)

Lucky and Carmen also share some stories of how they have both had run-ins with the po-po lately...wtf?  No one went to jail, so things are looking up.  Hope springs eternal, and well that was another lame segue -- BLESSED SPRING EQUINOX all you fan-freaking-tastic EMPA listeners!!!

THIS IS NOT THE LAST EPISODE!  MORE IS ON THE WAY!!!

In this episode of Eat My Pagan Ass podcast, Lucky's notoriously rambunctious grandmother, a.k.a. Grannylicious, has flown in from goddess knows where in order to appear on the podcast -- at 93 years old, this makes her the oldest living human being (at least we think she's human) to podcast. Carmen refuses to be in her presence, which is just as well -- Granny lobs some rather contentious accusations at Carmen, and makes some outrageous claims to fame, which Lucky finds hard to swallow, including everything from being the broom flying coach for the Harry Potter movies to going over Niagara Falls in a barrel while being a member of the Canadian mounted police. As whenever family comes to visit, a lot of shit from the past rises to the surface, and Lucky can barely handle it. Grannylicious makes a shocking revelation about her past that you'll never believe.
