Welcome to the All Souls Witchy Women Podcast Episode 6: The S Word, in which we discuss the power of scent.
Scent plays a powerful role in our perception of the world around us. Scent transports us to different times and places. It stimulates our salivary glands and make our mouths water. Scent warns us that danger is near. None of this is surprising when you consider that smell is the most sensitive of our senses and the first to develop.
Whether it’s Matthew’s cloves and cinnamon or Diana’s honeysuckle and more, scent abounds in the All Souls Trilogy. Join us as we break down this odiferous theme and the role it plays in the books we all love to talk about.
Housekeeping details: We’ve read the whole All Souls Trilogy and will try to stay on topic if we say a particular show is going to only cover A Discovery of Witches, but we may forget or digress or whatever so consider yourself warned if you’ve only read one of the books. For the record, this particular podcast seems to be fairly safe for those who’ve only read ADOW. Also this podcast is labeled explicit because we sometimes swear and we’re going to talk about sex because, well, there’s sex in the books. So that’s why we gave it the explicit rating. You’ve now been officially warned
Show notes: Each episode we’ll be bringing you a note about wine because red wine is a main form of sustenance for vampires when they’re not drinking, you know. blood. Oh, and we like wine…a lot. Usually our weekly wine notes come to us compliments of our resident sommelier, Bayard, who knows what he’s talking about because he’s a founding partner at Crafted Brands. But this time around we are also excited to talk about a new book from Avery Books called Wine Folly: Master Guide. Check out our Episode 6 Wine Note: Smelling Wine.
