This is a shorter mini-episode until I can get back to the swing of things. It's about 33 minutes and includes a review of the 2009 Feast of the Red Dragon, a charity event hosted by the DC Radical Faeries, a talk on the healing power of the serpent in mythology, and a dedication to my Dad.

Below are some photos from the Red Dragon Feast on February 14, 2009.

Update: I had to take a break from podcasting the past several months. My Dad's health got really bad and he passed away on January 7, 2009. I will resume with new podcasts in the near future.
