This week, my guest is the somewhat mysterious Jonah Locksley.
Jonah is a cultural historian and writer. Some of his essays have appeared in Abraxas Journal, Atlas Obscura, Disinformation, Folklore Thursday, and Ultraculture. He curates The Thinker’s Garden, an educational venture which seeks to encourage speculative thought by exploring the sublime and outré aspects of art and history. He is also the editor of Godfrey’s Almanack, an archaistic digest of recipes, anecdotes, and travel guides which pays tribute to Charles Godfrey Leland’s legacy of passionate enquiry into the world’s mysteries.
I talk to Jonah about The Thinker’s Garden and Godfrey’s Almanack, but we’ll also be taking a wander into the worlds of magic, alchemy, the occult and esoteric practice. And, of course, he shares his selections for Apocalypse Books in the second hour of the show.
