Off-the-clock professors and co-organizers of the Witch Institute Tamara de Szegheo Lang and Dan Vena duke it out over the feminist pleasures and representational pitfalls of contentious titles and guilty pleasures. In this six-episode series, the two hosts dig deep into the archive of beloved, forgotten and altogether ridiculous witch-related movies in celebration of the upcoming Witch Institute, hosted online in August 2021. Gather your coven, cue up the selected film and get ready to (performatively) RUMBLE!!
Episodes originally aired on CFRC 101.9 FM www.cfrc.ca/
