Learning Magic and Animism in a Global Context -

Aug 10, 2023

It's been one of the highlights of my year to start getting messages and images of the Fortune's Fools Lenormand oracle out in the world. And, as you might expect, it's got me thinking about fortune-telling.

One of my personal creative goals for the project was the queer (lol) the Little White Book concept, and so the companion book IS my fortune-telling book, in the sense that it is a book-length exploration of the techniques and metaphysics of telling fortunes. I've been reading fortunes for two decades, teaching tarot for almost one decade and have interviewed some of the best modern minds on the subject.

And so I have some takes. Several of them spicy.



This week, the audio version is an off-the-cuff exploration of those takes, recorded immediately after my deck artist, Colin Alexander, and I completed a full unboxing of the deck. An unboxing obviously makes for a terrible audio-version of a podcast so this week they're completely separate.


  • The audio version is Thoughts on Fortune Telling.
  • The video version is Coling and my gay little unboxing and reminiscing about the deck creation journey.

And there are still some decks available if you want to buy them here. (It still says pre-order, but they totally exist, I swear.)

Note: James and I are travelling for the next few days. For the 36 who purchased the top-tier package, we'll be in touch next week with the dates for the training and initiation.
