The Wytch Files Episode 01: The Magicians




Where popular culture meets the occult! In this episode, we review the fantasy novel, “The Magicians” by Lev Grossman (with SPOILERS!). We also review the first and second episodes of the Syfy Channel’s television adaptation of the novel, again with SPOILERS, and compare and contrast it with the source novel.

CORRECTION: In the episode, it is mentioned that Thelema has approximately 12-13 degrees. What we meant to say was that it was the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO) and not Thelema who had the degree system. The OTO has a total of 21 initiate degrees (thirteen numbered degrees plus eight un-numbered, intermediate degrees or sub-degrees).

For more information about the OTO, Aleister Crowley and Thelema, please visit the OTO US Grand Lodge website at:
