I just wanted to give you all an update about what’s going on over here at The Witching Hour- as a college radio show, we are on hiatus currently for summer vacation. However, we still have a few podcasts from Season 8 to edit and post, so those should be popping up throughout the summer! Come September, we will be back on air for Season 9 (wow that’s a large number), featuring Anu and our new witch Erin! Have a magical summer and let us know if you have any ideas for shows you’d like us to consider for the upcoming season!
