The Secret History of Western Esotericism Podcast

The Secret History of Western Esotericism Podcast (SHWEP) generously made available some of their (roughly) weekly podcast series which explores cutting-edge academic research in the study of Platonism, Gnosticism, Hermeticism, the Kabbalah, alchemy, occultism, magic, and related currents of thought.

This podcast documents the academic exploration of the neglected corners of western culture. The approach is roughly chronological, beginning with the earliest civilisations and moving forward in time until the present day, with the aim of leaving out nothing essential along the way. It will be a long and fascinating trip through the history of ideas, and one which is bound to challenge what you think you know about philosophy, science, religion, and western identities.

The podcasts are hosted by Earl Fontainelle, a researcher who specialises in the religious and philosophic thought of late antiquity, but with an interest in esoteric systems of thought.
